Yesterday, Samsung released the October 2022 security update to the Galaxy S21 series and the Galaxy S22 series. However, the update was only released in the US for carrier-locked and unlocked models. Now, more markets are getting the new update.
The latest software update for the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra has firmware version S90xBXXS2AVI7 in Europe. In Asia, the update is rolling out in Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam with firmware version S908EXXS2AVI7. The update is also rolling out in Panama.
Samsung hasn’t revealed which security vulnerabilities it has fixed with the October 2022 security patch. But as usual, we can expect the new security update to fix at least a couple dozen vulnerabilities found in Galaxy smartphones and tablets. The update might also include stability improvements.
If you have a Galaxy S22 in any of the countries mentioned above, you can now download and install the new software update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping Download and install. You can also download the new firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually.
Samsung launched the Galaxy S22 series earlier this year with Android 12-based One UI 4 out of the box. The phones have already received the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 beta update, and the stable update could be released in October or November 2022.
