Galaxy S20 series gets the July 2021 security update


Last updated: July 17th, 2021 at 13:00 UTC+02:00

Samsung started rolling out the July 2021 security update with the Galaxy S10 series last week. The latest security patch was then released to the Galaxy Fold, Galaxy Tab Active 2, and the Galaxy Tab A 8.0. The company has now released the security update to the Galaxy S20 series.

The Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra are getting new software updates with the July 2021 security patch in Germany. The firmware version for the LTE variants of the Galaxy S20 series is G98xFXXU8DUF9, while the firmware version for the 5G variants is G98xBXXU8DUF9. This update should fix Android Auto-related issues that some users were facing, and while the changelog is copied from a previous update, the size of this update suggests there’s more than just security fixes in there.

Speaking of security fixes, Samsung has not released the list of bugs and vulnerabilities that it has fixed with the July 2021 patch, but we expect it to make the information public in the next few days. If you are a Galaxy S20 series smartphone user in Germany, you can check for the latest update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also download the latest firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually. We expect this update to roll out to Galaxy S20 series devices in other markets in the next few days.

Samsung had launched the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra early last year with Android 10-based One UI 2 onboard. The smartphones received the Android 11-based One UI 3 update a few months ago. They are currently on Samsung’s monthly software update schedule.
