A few days ago, Samsung started rolling out the August 2021 security update. The Galaxy A52 was the first phone to get it. The update was then released to the Galaxy A72, Galaxy A8 (2018), Galaxy S20 FE (Exynos version), and the Galaxy S21 series. Now, the security update is available for the Galaxy S20 FE (4G) with the Snapdragon 865 chip.

Samsung has released a new security update to the Galaxy S20 FE’s 4G variant with the Snapdragon chipset (SM-780G) in Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam. It comes with firmware version G780GXXS2AUG4 and includes the August 2021 security patch. According to the South Korean firm’s documentation that was published today, the August 2021 patch fixes 40 vulnerabilities related to user privacy and data security.

If you are a Galaxy S20 FE user in any of the markets mentioned in this article, you can check for the update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install.

The Galaxy S20 FE’s 4G-only Snapdragon 865 version was launched three months ago. Originally, the Galaxy S20 FE was launched in 4G and 5G variants. The 4G variant used the Exynos 990 processor, while the 5G variant used the Snapdragon 865 chipset. However, due to the chip shortage, the company had to launch a third variant with 4G connectivity and the Snapdragon 865 processor in some markets.
