Galaxy S20 getting another update, come check out what’s new

Samsung’s making headway toward the eventual release of the heavily anticipated One UI 3.0 and Android 11 update for the Galaxy S20 series later this year, but the company is simultaneously working on standard updates for its 2020 flagship lineup. To that end, Samsung is rolling out a new update for the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra for everyone who is still using Android 10 and One UI 2.5. This update, featuring firmware version G98xxXXS5BTJ4, is available in Germany at this time and will no doubt get a wider release before the week is over.

Latest Galaxy S20 update all about security fixes

What does the update have to offer to Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra owners? Well, nothing except security fixes, which shouldn’t surprise us as Samsung is likely holding off on bringing new features to its flagships before the One UI 3.0 update is ready to roll out. Exactly what vulnerabilities are addressed by these security fixes is a mystery right now, as Samsung has yet to detail the November 2020 security patch even though it is already bringing the patch to some of its devices.

As usual, the latest update can be downloaded over the air by tapping the Download and install option in the Settings » Software update menu on the phone. The new firmware is also available for download from our firmware archive for those who aren’t fond of waiting for the over-the-air release and would like to make the jump to the latest software right away.
