Galaxy A20 now getting Android 11 in the U.S.


Last updated: August 2nd, 2021 at 16:36 UTC+02:00

Samsung started updating the Galaxy A20 to Android 11 some two months back. Today, that OS upgrade cycle is nearing international completion, having just reached the United States.

Identified by PDA version A205USQU9CUG3, the new firmware release has just started rolling out stateside. Xfinity Mobile customers are the first users in the country to get it, but this development means all variants of the Galaxy A20 will follow suit in the days ahead.

The next security update for the Galaxy A20 might be months away

Downloading the newest over-the-air update will bump your One UI version from 2.5 up to 3.1. On the cybersecurity front, the new security patch level you can expect following the download will be dated July 1st, 2021. While the August 2021 patch has already been rolling out for the past few days, major OS upgrades tend to be a month behind Samsung’s latest security bulletin, so that’s pretty much par for the course.

Or rather, it would be par for the course if the Galaxy A20 was still on the monthly monthly release schedule. Alas, that’s not the case, so the next security patch to hit it will likely only arrive in fall. By that time, all Galaxy A20 owners in the U.S. should already be using One UI 3.1.

Either way, this is the second major OS revision to hit the 2019 device, and likely the final one. With that said, the Galaxy A20 is guaranteed to continue receiving security patches for nearly two more years. Courtesy of Samsung going above and beyond to ensure its customers remain safe even many years after purchasing their devices.
