Galaxy S20, Note 20 series get February 2021 security update in the USA

Samsung began rolling out the February 2021 security patch last week. It debuted for the Galaxy S20 series in a handful of European countries but it’s now reaching the USA. In addition to the S20 lineup, Samsung is now bringing the February 2021 security update to the newer Galaxy Note 20 series in the same market, so we can expect availability to expand to additional Galaxy smartphone models soon.

Samsung hasn’t revealed the changelog for the February 2021 security patch yet but it should be doing so in a couple of weeks at the latest. The changelog will reveal some vulnerabilities that have been addressed with the February 2021 security patch, but for security reasons, Samsung won’t reveal these vulnerabilities before the patch reaches more Galaxy phones.

The new firmware updates for the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20 series in the USA carry firmware versions G98xU1UES1CUA2 and N98xU1UES1CUA1, respectively. The Galaxy S20 Ultra model appears to be lagging behind the rest but it should catch up soon.

Customers in the USA can check if the update is available for their devices by checking the Software update menu within Settings. Alternatively, SamMobile offers Samsung firmware downloads for free. You can acquire the latest update from our firmware archive by referring to the links below:
