The November 2022 security includes several patches, which are added by Google and Samsung both, which provides extra protection to your device by fixing various security vulnerabilities. As per Samsung’s official documentation, it also comes with some system-level improvements that give your device more stability as well as enhance its performance. As it was received previously with Android 13 but is again available for the second time, it may carry some extra improvements and stability features for optimizing the Android 13 software on the device.

The Galaxy S20 series was launched in 2020 and came with Android 10 on board; it was introduced way before the official announcement of four Android updates. Samsung released an official confirmation in early 2022 that the upcoming phones will be eligible for four Android updates.

However, the device is still eligible for more security updates in the future.
