    September 2020 security update reaches entire Galaxy S20 family

    Firmware
    By 

    Last updated: September 21st, 2020 at 13:29 UTC+02:00

    The September 2020 security update should reach the owners of any and every Galaxy S20 series smartphone in the coming days – assuming it hasn't already. Samsung began deploying it last week and as of today, the rollout expanded to the entire flagship family throughout Europe. That includes every configuration of the Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra, or at least the Exynos-powered LTE and 5G variants. Which equates to many model numbers in total, so please refer to our firmware archives in order to check the global availability status of the one(s) applicable to you.

    As always, the same resource base also offers full system image downloads for those who aren't keen on waiting for the update to reach them manually and understand how sideloading works. Alternatively, you can trigger a manual installation attempt by opening Settings, scrolling down to Software update, and tapping the Download and install option on the following interface.

    One UI 3.0 update coming soon – but not that soon

    As per usual, the new OTA release improves the security patch level of eligible devices by another month, raising it to one dated September 1st, 2020. No other improvements or changes are included in the package.

    Around the same time this security patch went live, first screenshots from One UI 3.0 running on the Galaxy S20 hit the Internet. Samsung is still in the early stages of testing its new operating system release based on Android 11, so try to remain patient in the meantime because these things take time to do right. And Samsung has definitely been doing them right for a long while now. In fact, it pledged to do even better just last month.
