Samsung is one of the most punctual companies in software updates, and it is the only company which provides new updates to its devices after Google. Sometimes it also overtakes Google when it comes to security updates and distributes them to eligible devices as soon as possible. At present, the Korean giant is expanding the March 2023 security update.

Now the company is focussing on the Canadian market and rolling out the March 2023 security patch for some Galaxy devices, including Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3, and Galaxy S21 series devices; however, these devices have already received the same update in several other markets. Let’s discuss these devices with the new update.
