Galaxy S10, Note 20, S20 FE and more get January 2021 security update

Firmware
By 

Last updated: January 6th, 2021 at 08:16 UTC+02:00

The January 2021 security patch has been released for a number of Samsung’s Galaxy phones this week. It started with the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S20 lineups, and now, the Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy S20 FE, and Galaxy Note 10 Lite are also being updated with the latest security fixes.

For those wondering, the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 Lite are not being updated to Android 11 with the new firmware, though we can expect that to change soon considering the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ and the Galaxy S10 Lite have received the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update in some markets.

For Galaxy Note 20, Note 20 Ultra, and Galaxy S20 FE owners, this should be the second update based on Android 11 in some markets and the first in others. However, those who fall in the former camp shouldn’t expect to see any bug fixes or general improvements, as the January update comes bundled with only security enhancements. The same applies to the new firmware that is rolling out for the Galaxy S10 series and the Galaxy Note 10 Lite.

If you own any of these devices, you can check if the January update is available by opening the phone’s Settings app, navigating to Software update, and selecting Download and install. Alternatively, you can download the latest firmware for your phone and country/carrier from our archives in case you wish to skip the wait for the over-the-air release. As usual, the new updates won’t immediately be available in all countries but will gradually expand over the coming days.
