Galaxy S20 series gets April 2023 security patch with the new update
The latest software update for the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra comes with firmware version G98xBXXSGHWCF. This update is for the 5G versions of the smartphones and brings the April 2023 security patch that fixes over 60 security and privacy flaws found in Galaxy smartphones. The update might also include general bug fixes and stability improvements. Since the phones received the One UI 5.1 update with a lot of new features a couple of months ago, don't expect the latest update to bring any new features.
