Although the Galaxy S20 series has yet to ship to customers around the world, Samsung has seemingly begun rolling out the first firmware update for the Galaxy S20 Ultra. According to a screenshot that we assume was captured on a review unit in South Korea and passed along by TizenHelp, the update introduces camera improvements as well as the March 2020 security patch. This makes the S20 Ultra the first Galaxy device to receive the latest Android OS security fixes.
The software package weighs around 418MB and it’s identified by firmware version G988NKSU1ATBR. It claims to improve the camera quality of the Galaxy S20 Ultra, and fix an issue with the auto flash. The Galaxy S20 Ultra already is a very impressive ‘camera phone,’ and we’ll tell you all about its crazy camera capabilities in our upcoming review, so stay tuned.
We assume that Samsung will release a similar firmware update for the standard Galaxy S20 as well as the Galaxy S20+. Either way, this new update should be immediately available for download once the Galaxy S20 Ultra starts shipping to customers around the world, or at the very least, the initial rollout will take place in South Korea but other regions will follow suit. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
