Samsung’s superb run with software updates continues with the release of the latest security patch to the Galaxy S20 series. It is not even February yet, but the company has already started releasing the February 2021 security patch to the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra in various countries.
The February 2021 security update with firmware version G98**XXS6CUA8 is now rolling out to the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra in various European countries and the UK. These markets include Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the Nordic countries, and the UK. This minor update might soon roll out to devices in other markets as well.
This update brings just the latest security patch, and we don’t expect it to bring any new features. Samsung might detail what vulnerabilities it is fixing with the new update in the coming days. If you are a Galaxy S20 series user in Europe or the UK, you can check for the update manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and then tapping on Download and install.
