Samsung has started rolling out the August 2023 security update to the Galaxy Note 20 series. The company released the new security update last week, and it has already reached the Galaxy S20 FE, Galaxy S20 FE 5G, Galaxy S23, and a few devices in the Galaxy Z lineup.
The latest software update for the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is available in China and some Southeast European countries. The software update comes bearing firmware version N98xFXXS8HWH3 in Southeast Europe, and it fixes over 70 security flaws found in Galaxy smartphones and tablets. The update doesn't include any new features or performance enhancements. In China, the new update comes with firmware version N98x0ZSS6HWG8.
If you live in Southeast Europe and have a Galaxy Note 20 series phone, you can now check for the new software update. You can do that by heading over to Settings » Software update and tapping Download and install. You can also try an alternative method which involves downloading the appropriate firmware file from our firmware database and flashing it manually using Samsung's Odin software and a PC running a Windows operating system.
Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 20 series in the second half of 2020 with Android 10 pre-install. The phones received the Android 11 update in late 2020, the Android 12 update in late 2021, and the Android 13 update in late 2022. The devices may not get the Android 14 update later this year.
