New Galaxy M20 update brings March 2019 security patch

Samsung has started rolling out the March 2019 security patch for the Galaxy M20, ahead of all the flagships. The M20 began receiving an update with software version M205FDDU1ASB4 two days back, with the over-the-air release weighing 368 MB. The company hasn’t published what’s included in the March SMR on its Android Security Updates page yet, so we currently don’t know what security fixes are there in the new security patch..

The changelog lists camera stability improvements as well, but we are not sure how substantial these changes are. The update also adds some bloatware in the form of the Amazon shopping app, but, thankfully, it can be uninstalled completely after the update. Amazon is the exclusive partner for the Galaxy M series in India, which should be the reason behind Samsung pushing the online retailer’s app.

Galaxy M20 users can open the Settings app, navigate to the Software update menu, and tap the Download updates manually option to check for the OTA update. Since Samsung adopts staged rollout, not everyone may receive the update immediately. You can also download the latest Galaxy M20 firmware from our database and manually install the update if you are impatient to wait.

The Galaxy M20 is already an impressive device as we noted in our review. Samsung will only be making it better with such quick updates. Hopefully, this becomes a trend with all Galaxy devices this year.
