    Galaxy A70 picks up July 2020 security update

    Last updated: July 2nd, 2020 at 08:33 UTC+02:00

    Samsung is continuing to release the July security update for more and more devices. After the Galaxy S20, Galaxy Z Flip, and Galaxy A50, the Galaxy A70 has started receiving the latest security patch. Featuring firmware version A705YNDXU5BTF1, the update for the A70 is rolling out in Australia for the unlocked and Telstra models.

    The update should come to other markets soon. To check if it is available in your country, you can open the phone's Settings app, navigate to Software update, and select Download and install. You can also visit our firmware archive to see if the update has been released in your country.

    The July update doesn't bring any new features, improvements or changes, for those wondering. Samsung has yet to detail the July 2020 security patch, but the company will likely do the needful soon. Naturally, Samsung will continue to update other Galaxy devices with this month's security patch in the meantime.

    Galaxy A70 eligible for Android 11 update

    The Galaxy A70 is one of many Galaxy smartphones that are eligible for the Android 11 update. Android 11 will most likely be accompanied by One UI 3.0, but at this time, there is no word on what features the next major One UI update will offer. One UI 3.0 will be preceded by One UI 2.5, which will debut on the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and will probably remain exclusive to the new flagships.
