Samsung December 2023 Security Patch: These Galaxy devices have received it so far


Samsung has initiated the December 2023 security update with the Galaxy S23 devices. They gradually expanded it to more eligible Galaxy devices, including the Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy S20, Galaxy A54, and many more. We will explore a whole list, but before that, let’s understand what a security update is and what you will get this time.

Security updates are a very common update in Android devices that provides several bug fixes that enhance the overall security of devices. These updates are released by Google and distributed among different OEMs so they can easily distribute them according to their requirements. However,  if we compare Galaxy devices with other Android devices, the Galaxy users are getting an advantage even in these updates because Samsung always adds some extra security patches that enhance the security of Galaxy devices exclusively.
