    The last Galaxy Note series ever to be released has started getting Samsung's newest security update. The Galaxy Note 20 series has now started getting the July 2023 security update. This comes just a few days after the Galaxy Note 10 series got the new security update.

    Galaxy Note 20 is now more security with July 2023 security update

    The new software update for the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra comes with firmware version N985FXXS7HWG2. It is currently available in Latin American countries, including Argentina, Bolivia, and Peru. We expect the new update to be released in more Latin American countries within the next few days and worldwide by the end of this month. The new security patch fixes over 90 security vulnerabilities found in the previous version of the software. Don't expect the update to bring any new features or performance improvements.

    If you have a Galaxy Note 20 series phone and live in any of the countries mentioned above, you can download the new update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping Download and install. You can also download the new firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually using a Windows computer and the Odin software.

    Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 20 series with Android 10 onboard. It received the Android 11 update in late 2020 and the Android 12 update in late 2021. Samsung released the Android 13 update to the Galaxy Note 20 series in late 2022.
