Samsung started releasing the August 2021 security update last week. The Galaxy A52 was the first phone from the company to get it. The update then expanded to the Galaxy A72, Galaxy A8 (2018), and the Chinese variant of the Galaxy S21. Now, the Galaxy S20 FE has received the update ahead of other Galaxy S20 series phones.
The Galaxy S20 FE has started getting the new security update in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Slovakia, and Switzerland. It bears firmware version G780FXXU5CUG6 and includes the August 2021 security patch. Samsung is yet to fully reveal which vulnerabilities it has fixed with the August 2021 update, but we expect detailed documentation to be published by the South Korean firm after a couple of weeks.
