Samsung’s April 2021 security patch rollout continues and the Galaxy S20 FE is one of the latest devices to join the recent firmware update party alongside the Galaxy A52, the Galaxy S21, and a couple of other Galaxy phones.
The Galaxy S20 FE is now receiving the April 2021 security patch through a new firmware update that’s rolling out in countless countries across Europe. There are too many to count here, but you can refer to our firmware archive for a complete list.
The update seems to be limited to the 4G variant of the Galaxy S20 FE and it can be identified by firmware version G780FXXS2CUC8. The Galaxy S20 FE 5G will probably receive a similar update very soon.
If you happen to own the Galaxy S20 FE in one of the many European countries in which the firmware update is now rolling out, you should receive an update notification at any moment. Otherwise, you can try triggering the update via the Settings app by navigating to Software update and tapping Download and install.
As usual, SamMobile readers can circumvent the OTA release and download the latest firmware for the Galaxy S20 FE (SM-G780F) from our archive. The firmware can then be installed on the phone using a Windows PC without having to wait for the update to reach your device over-the-air.
