Galaxy S20 LTE series gets May 2022 security patch days after 5G models


Last updated: May 10th, 2022 at 13:26 UTC+02:00

We said it shouldn’t take long for the Galaxy S20 LTE to receive the May 2022 security patch, and it didn’t. The 5G variants took the lead earlier this week, but now Samsung is releasing a similar firmware update for the Galaxy S20 and S20+ with LTE capabilities.

The Galaxy S20 (SM-G980F) is getting the latest update in Switzerland. Samsung is a bit more generous with the Galaxy S20+ model (SM-G985F), as the May 2022 security patch is live in almost a dozen markets, including Greece, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Portugal, Austria, Nordic countries, Baltic countries, Luxembourg, Slovakia, and the Netherlands.

The new update carries firmware version G98xFXXUEFVDB. The May 2022 security patch got detailed at the beginning of the month. It’s supposed to address several vulnerabilities in Google’s Android OS and a handful of security flaws in Samsung’s software, including the Weather app, Galaxy Themes, Setup Wizard, and more.

As always, the update can be downloaded on the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ via the update notification when it arrives or from the “Software update” menu inside the “Settings” app on your phone.

SamMobile offers an alternative method of updating Galaxy devices using Samsung’s official firmware tool. You can download the latest official firmware files from our website and install the latest updates manually — where available — using a PC.
