Android 11 is now live for the unlocked Galaxy A20 in the USA


Last updated: August 23rd, 2021 at 17:10 UTC+02:00

A little over two months have passed since the Galaxy A20 first began its journey towards the realm of Android 11, and Samsung has kept pushing the update to more markets since. Now the unlocked Galaxy A20 is finally getting Android 11 and a new security patch in the USA.

Android 11 and One UI 3.1 introduce more AoD options and lock screen widgets, improved first-party apps and services such as Parental Controls and Digital Wellbeing, improved privacy and security features, a new quick toggle drop-down menu, and a revamped UI overall.

The Android 11 and One UI 3.1 duo is, of course, the highlight of the new update, though it’s worth noting that the package also includes a newer security patch. The August 2021 security patch, to be precise. It addresses a total of 38 issues addressing Google’s OS and a couple of vulnerabilities affecting Samsung’s software.

As always, Galaxy A20 owners who are eligible for this update should receive an update notification at any moment, or they can trigger the process from the Software update section within the Settings app. Oh, and if you own a carrier model, you’ve probably received the new update already.

Alternatively, unlocked Galaxy A20 owners in the USA can skip the wait by referring to our firmware database, where they can download the new update — firmware version A205U1UEU9CUH3 — for manual installation.

Thanks for the tip, Amin!
