Samsung brings December 2023 security update for Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 FE devices in Canada


Samsung has initiated the December 2023 update for Canadian users. The update is currently available for two high-end devices, including the Galaxy S20 series and Galaxy S20 FE devices. Other high-end device users are expected to receive the update in the next few days as part of this rollout.

The latest update for the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra can be identified by the firmware version numbers G981WVLSBHWK2, G986WVLSBHWK2, and G988WVLSBHWK2, respectively. The Fan Edition device is getting the update with a different firmware version number, G781WVLSCHWK1.

The latest update for these devices is coming with a new security update in the form of a December 2023 patch. With this update, you will not see any significant changes to your device, but it will enhance the overall security of devices. According to the official documentation, the latest security update will bring 60+ patches, which were added by Google and Samsung.

Moreover, it will make your device less vulnerable and capable of fighting against external threats that can cause damage to your device and breach your privacy. To make the device protective, you should always keep it up-to-date with the latest version.

Apart from these, the Galaxy S20 series and Galaxy S20 FE are no longer eligible for any major updates. The reason behind this is that these devices are only eligible for three major updates that have already arrived for them, and Android 13 was the last one. However, they will still grab some more updates as security updates in the coming days.

If you are also using the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 FE devices in Canada, then you should update them to the latest version. To do that, you can simply go to the software update menu from the main system settings, tap on the download and install option, wait for some time until it checks for the new update; if it says the new update is available, then tap the download button.
