The Galaxy S22 was the first phone to get the March 2022 security update. However, that update was limited to Europe and Asia. Now, the update is slowly making it to the US shores. The new security update is rolling out to the US carrier-locked models of Galaxy S22 smartphones.
The new software update for the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra has firmware version S90xUSQU1AVC8, and it has been released on Comcast and Xfinity Mobile's networks in the US. More carriers in the country are expected to release the update within the next few weeks. The update includes the March 2022 security patch, device stability improvements, and general bug fixes.
If you are a Galaxy S22 series user in the US, you might have already received a notification of the new update. If you haven't received the update yet, you can check for it manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also download the latest firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually.
We don't have the full changelog just yet, so we are not sure if the new update also brings the option to disable GOS (Game Optimization Service). Samsung uses GOS to limit the performance of its phones slightly so that they don't overheat under sustained load. After a huge backlash, the South Korean firm had announced that it would offer an option to disable GOS via a software update.
