    New Galaxy S20 update brings improved camera, April security patch

    Firmware
    By 

    Last updated: April 7th, 2020 at 12:30 UTC+02:00

    The most recent firmware update that was released for the Galaxy S20 series brought much needed improvements to the autofocus performance of the Galaxy S20 Ultra camera, and it also included some general camera improvements for the other two Galaxy S20 models. Now, Samsung has released a new update for its latest flagship in Hong Kong and Taiwan, once again targeting camera optimization.

    The update sports build number G98x0ZHU1ATCT and, in addition to camera performance improvements, it packs the April 2020 security patch. Now, it's worth mentioning that the updates Samsung releases for its flagships in markets like China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan are often different from what it releases in the rest of the world, so it's unclear if this new update will also make an appearance in other markets. The April patch will no doubt arrive at some point for all countries, but we will have to wait and see if the camera improvements will be included in the update for those countries as well.

    As usual, we will be keeping an eye out and letting you know once – and if – this new update starts rolling out internationally. For now, if you reside in Taiwan or Hong Kong and are rocking one of the three Galaxy S20 models, you can download the update over the air from the phone's Settings » Software update menu. You can also download the latest firmware from our archive and install it manually on your phone using a Windows PC.
