In another move to ensure the security and longevity of its flagship smartphone, Samsung has started rolling out new security patches for the Galaxy S20 5G in Europe.
Samsung has started rolling out January 2023 security updates for the 5G unit (SM-G981) of the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus, and Galaxy S20 Ultra in Europe. This update, which is currently rolling out in France, is expected to affect all regions in the coming days. However, a few days ago the update has already started for the LTE version.
The security patch includes fixes for 52 vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) in the Android operating system. These CVEs range from moderate to severe. Overall, this is a solid update that addresses some important security issues and provides useful bug fixes. If you have a Galaxy S20 5G device in Europe, be sure to check for the update and install it as soon as possible. The January 2023 stock rollouts for the Galaxy S20 5G, Galaxy S20 Plus 5G, and Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G carry firmware versions G981BXXSFGWA7, G986BXXSFGWA7, and G988BXXSFGWA7, respectively.
Galaxy S20 series is eligible for One UI 5.1 update:
Although Samsung has not announced when the January security update will roll out to other regions, it is clear that the update is currently only available in Europe. This may be because the European version of the Galaxy S20 5G series is the only one that received the update. It is not known if this update will be available in other regions in the future.
