Samsung started rolling out the July 2021 security update with the Galaxy S10 series last week. The latest security patch was then released for the Galaxy Fold, Galaxy Tab Active 2, and Galaxy Tab A 8.0. The company has now released the security update for the Galaxy S20 series.
The Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra will receive new software updates with the security patch from July 2021 in Germany. The firmware version for the LTE variants of the Galaxy S20 series is G98xFXXU8DUF9, while the firmware version for the 5G variants is G98xBXXU8DUF9. This update aimed to fix Android Auto-related issues that some users have faced, and while the changelog has been copied from a previous update, the size of this update suggests there’s more to it than just security fixes.
Speaking of security fixes, Samsung hasn’t released the list of bugs and vulnerabilities it fixed with the July 2021 patch, but we expect the information to be released in the coming days. If you are a Galaxy S20 series smartphone user in Germany, you can check for the latest update by going to Settings » Software Update and tap on Download and Install. You can also download the latest firmware file from our firmware database and manually flash it. We expect this update to roll out to Galaxy S20 series devices in other markets in the coming days.
Samsung launched the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra with Android 10 based One UI 2 on board at the beginning of last year. The smartphones received the One UI 3 update based on Android 11 a few months ago. You are currently using Samsung’s monthly software update plan.
