Samsung had released the October 2021 security update to South Korean Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20 units last week. The company is now rolling out the software update to international units of the Galaxy S20 series smartphones. The new update is currently available in Germany, but more markets could get access to this update very soon.
The Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra have started getting a new software update with firmware version G98xxXXUBDUI5. It includes the October 2021 security patch, general bug fixes, and device stability improvements. While we don’t have an official changelog of this update right now, it might also include the RAM Plus feature that adds virtual memory to Galaxy smartphones and tablets.
If you are a Galaxy S20 series smartphone user in Germany, you might have already received a notification of the new update. If you haven’t received it yet, you can check for the update manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install.
