Samsung began rolling out the June 2021 security update last week, with the Galaxy Z Flip 5G being the first device to receive it. A new firmware update is now hitting the waves for another Samsung flagship that was released in 2020, and it’s none other than the Galaxy S20.
The latest firmware update doesn’t seem to include any new features aside from improved security, and because Samsung hasn’t revealed the changelog for the June security update yet, we’re sort of left in the dark, for now. As usual, security patches are released first and detailed later due to security reasons, so this is nothing out of the ordinary. Samsung is expected to follow up with a more complete security patch changelog soon.
The latest update carries firmware version G98xxXXS8DUE4 and it should be available for the Galaxy S20, the Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra in several markets including the UK and Luxembourg. Samsung will gradually push the firmware update to more Galaxy S20 models in additional regions, and it shouldn’t take long before it will be available worldwide.
Galaxy S20 owners should be on the lookout for an update notification, or they can try triggering the update from the Settings app on their phones. The update can also be acquired from our firmware archive where readers can download the files for manual installation using a Windows PC.
