A new update is rolling out for the Galaxy A20e. Unsurprisingly given Samsung’s punctuality when it comes to security patches, the new update introduces the July 2019 security patch which should fix a number of vulnerabilities within the Android operating system and the OEM’s software. At the moment, the package is being deployed in Germany for the model number SM-A202F, but availability will likely expand to other regions over the next couple of weeks.
Aside from the July 2019 security patch, the changelog mentions improvements to the stability of Knox Guard, which might be of interest to enterprises. The update also brings along an updated moisture detection algorithm, similar to the update that landed on the Galaxy A30 earlier this month. So far, we haven’t heard any reports of the Galaxy A20e being affected by Samsung’s “moisture detect error,” but this issue has affected the company’s flagships in the past, and it usually occurs when the phone is charging. But as far as the Galaxy A20e goes, the updated algorithm seems to be a pre-emptive measure.
If you haven’t received the update notification on your Galaxy A20e yet, you can try to trigger the update process manually by opening the Settings app and tapping Software update followed by Download and install. If you wish to circumvent the over-the-air procedure, you can download the firmware from our database and apply it to your phone manually using your computer.
