Android 11 now hitting Galaxy A20s as Samsung prepares for Android 12
As Android 12 looms on the horizon, Samsung is making sure to update all eligible devices to Android 11 as soon as it can. As part of that goal, the company is rolling out the latest version of Android to the Galaxy A20s, along with One UI 3.1. The update has been spotted in Malaysia, sports firmware version A207FXXU2CUFA, and includes the June 2021 security patch.
Galaxy A20s gets its second and final Android OS upgrade
This is the second and last major Android OS upgrade for the Galaxy A20s. Being a budget phone, it’s only eligible for two such updates, though with OnePlus nipping at Samsung’s heels with its software support promises, the Korean giant may soon want to extend the privilege of three OS generation updates to the more affordable Galaxy devices in its stable.
The Android 11 and One UI 3.1 update introduce a slew of improvements and changes, including an updated user interface both in general and inside various Samsung apps, better privacy controls (such as the ability to remove location data from images before sharing and one-time permissions for apps), and faster app performance and memory usage.
As mentioned earlier, Malaysia is the only market where the Android 11 update is rolling out for the Galaxy A20s right now, but we expect more countries to follow suit in the coming weeks. If you reside in Malaysia, the update should be available for download over the air from the phone’s Settings » Software update menu. As usual, our firmware archives are at your disposal if you wish to take the manual route and upgrade your phone using a Windows PC.
