Samsung’s May 2020 security patch rollout continues with two additional Galaxy models having been updated recently, namely the Galaxy A30 (SM-A305F) and Galaxy J8 (SM-J810F). The recent updates carry version numbers A305FDDS5BTE3 and J810FJXU4BTE2, respectively.
As far as the Galaxy A30 is concerned, the update brings the May 2020 security patch in Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam.
