Carrier-locked Galaxy S21/S22/Note 20 series receiving March 2023 security update in the USA

Samsung is always ahead when it comes to providing new updates to its devices; being a smartphone giant, the company also dominates in the Android software market after Google; most of the time company has also beaten Google in the security updates segment, as it has updated its devices with new security patch even before the official bulletin announcement.
