Samsung has started rolling out the March 2022 security update to the carrier-locked model of the Galaxy A70 in the US. The international version of the mid-range smartphone hasn’t received the update yet, but we expect that to happen soon.

The new software bears firmware version A705USQS2DVC1 and includes the March 2022 security patch. According to Samsung’s documentation, the new security patch fixes over 50 security vulnerabilities. It might also include bug fixes and device stability improvements.
