Samsung rolls out January 2023 security update for Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy S21 FE



The Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy S21 FE are Samsung’s premium flagship devices at their release time. But as time passes, these devices no longer have that flagship tag, the fan edition of Galaxy S21 was launched in 2022, which is not that old, but the Korean giant introduced its new generation S series devices as Galaxy S22 just after the launch. While the Note 20 series devices were launched way before, they are approximately three years older devices now and end support the major Android OS update after Android 13. But as a responsible company, Samsung is keeping its promise and updating these devices with new updates.

Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra’s New Update

The Galaxy Note 20 series was launched in 2020, the device comes with Android 10, which has recently received the Android 13 update, and it was the final major update for this device. However, Samsung is still serving January 2023 security updates for the device, and now the same security update is available for the device. The latest update brings the year’s first security update in the form of January 2023. Users can identify the update by the firmware version number N981BXXS5GWA8 and N986BXXS5GWA8 for Galaxy Note 20 5G and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G, respectively. The update is currently rolling out in Brazil.
