January 2020 security update out for more Galaxy devices

Samsung is refusing to let up and keeps impressing us with its fervor for releasing security updates as quickly as possible. The company pushed out the January 2020 security patch to the Galaxy A50 and Galaxy Tab S5e yesterday, and it is now rolling out the patch to four more devices. These are the Galaxy A10, Galaxy A10s, Galaxy A20, and Galaxy A30 – all four phones are receiving the January security update in Thailand.

Yes, Samsung Thailand has decided to bring next month’s Android security patch to multiple 2019 A series phones at the same time. And that’s all the latest updates released for these devices have to offer – no new features or improvements are included. Android 10 isn’t here The contents of the January 2020 patch, meanwhile, are a mystery, Samsung (and Google) will not be detailing the next security patch until a few days later.

If you own one of the four phones mentioned above and reside in Thailand, you can check for the update and download it over the air by tapping Download and install in the Software update menu of the phone’s Settings app. We also have the latest firmware in our firmware archive so you can update your phone manually using a Windows PC if the OTA release isn’t available for your device just yet.
