Galaxy S20 series starts getting May 2021 security patch


Last updated: May 3rd, 2021 at 17:48 UTC+02:00

It is not even May yet, but Samsung has already started rolling out the May 2021 security patch to some of its high-end Galaxy phones. Yesterday, the Galaxy S21 series received the May 2021 security patch, and now the Galaxy S20 series has started getting the latest security update in a few markets.

The latest update for the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra, which includes the May 2021 security patch, is rolling out in Germany right now. The new updates for the three phones have firmware version G98xxXXU7DUDB. Apart from the new security patch, the update also brings improved camera performance and Quick Share to the Galaxy S20 series.

The Quick Share menu is now accessible from the Advanced Features section on the Galaxy S20 series, and its quick toggle now shows if you have set to share files with everyone or only with your contacts. It means that you won’t have to go to Quick Share settings to change the selection. The download size of the new update is over 600MB, so we would advise you to use a Wi-Fi network.

If you are a Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, or Galaxy S20 Ultra user in Germany, you might have received the update already. If not, you can manually check for the update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also download the firmware file from our firmware section and flash it manually.
