The October security patch has started making its way to two of Samsung’s flagship lineups this week. Both last year’s Galaxy S10 and this year’s Galaxy S20 series (not including the Galaxy S20 FE) are getting a new update that includes the latest security patch and, well, nothing else. The new updates for these phones are purely about security enhancements and are accompanied by firmware versions G97xFXXS9DTI8 and G98xxXXS5BTIJ respectively.
For the Galaxy S20 lineup, this is the second software update in a span of two weeks, making us wonder when the One UI 3.0 beta program is going to kick off for the public. Just a week ago, Samsung’s beta operations team had said the beta is “coming soon”, but it’s clear that the wait is going to be a little longer seeing as how general updates continue to roll out for the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra.
As usual, these updates are rolling out over the air or will do so soon. To check if your Galaxy S10 or Galaxy S20 series device has an update, open the phone’s Settings » Software update menu and tap Download and install. If you’re not afraid of taking matters into your own hands, you can download the latest firmware for your model and country from our archive and manually update your phone instead of waiting for the over-the-air release.
