While Samsung has been busy today in releasing the first One UI 6.0 Beta update to the Galaxy S23 series, it hasn't forgotten about its older phones. The company has released the latest security update to the Galaxy S20 series, which was launched three years ago.
Galaxy S20 August 2023 security update: What's new?
The August 2023 security update for the LTE versions of the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra comes with firmware version G98xFXXSIHWH1. The 5G versions of all three phones are getting updated with firmware version G98xBXXSIHWH1. The update is currently rolling out in Latin American countries, including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Trinidad And Tobago, and Uruguay.
According to Samsung's documentation, the August 2023 security patch fixes over 70 security flaws found in its phones and tablets. The new update for the Galaxy S20 series doesn't bring any new features or performance improvements. It is solely focused on improving the security of the devices, and its download size isn't that significant.
