    Galaxy S20 FE US fans finally get what they’ve been waiting for

    Firmware

    The factory-unlocked Galaxy S20 FE 5G is finally getting the Android 13 update in the USA. Carrier models got the update at the end of last year, and the unlocked variant is now following suit.

    Android 13 and One UI 5.0 are now available for the S20 FE 5G variant that carries the SM-G781U1 model number. The update includes the January 2023 security patch and carries firmware version G781U1UEU9FWA7.

    The January 2023 update addresses some security concerns for Samsung Knox, Secure Folder, NFC, and more. But beyond these security improvements, this new update brings Android 13 and One UI 5.0, which are, by far, the more interesting additions for most users.

    One UI 5.0 brings UI improvements and better performance

    With One UI 5.0, Galaxy S20 FE users in the USA benefit from better optimization and several UI improvements. The color palette feature is now richer, and the update brings a new lock screen customization menu featuring a live preview of all your changes.

    In addition, the update introduces stacked widgets for the home screen, and the Settings menu was also redone in places. Now, there's a new “Connected devices” menu for every connectivity feature, including SmartThings, Galaxy Wear, Smart View, Android Auto, and more. Even the Recent Apps screen got a new “Background apps” option that lets you monitor and manage these apps better.

    And although this varies from one Galaxy device to another, generally speaking, One UI 5.0 focuses on optimizing performance and speeding up UI animations. The update should give the Galaxy S20 FE a new lease on life.

    Unlocked Galaxy S20 FE 5G users in the USA should now be able to download Android 13 and One UI 5.0 upon receiving a notification. Or they can trigger the update manually by opening the Settings app on their phones, accessing “Software update,” and tapping “Download and install.”

    Alternatively, Galaxy S20 FE users who prefer manual updates via a PC can download the official Samsung firmware files from our website.
