For the Galaxy Note 20 series, the July security update is available.

Next in line to receive the July 2022 Android security patch from Samsung is the Galaxy Note 20 series. In Europe and South America, the company has begun distributing the most recent security update to its last Note-branded phones. Other markets, including the US, should shortly receive the update.

The Galaxy Note 20 series’ July SMR (Security Maintenance Release) is version rolling out with firmware code N98**XXS4FVG1. The Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note Ultra, and Galaxy Note 20 5G models are all eligible for the upgrade. Although availability may vary depending on the market and carrier model, it shouldn’t take long before Samsung covers all qualifying units worldwide.

However, Samsung hasn’t yet released the information regarding the July SMR. It would, as usual, include fixes for a large number of vulnerabilities. However, we lack accurate information regarding the type of vulnerabilities, their severity, and the devices they affect. Within this week, we anticipate the corporation will release the most recent security bulletin. When we have more information, we’ll let you know.

But it doesn’t mean they won’t get any further feature updates. The phones, which debuted in mid-2020 with Android 10 preloaded, have not yet reached their second anniversary on the market. Since their release, Android 11 and Android 12 have received updates. Android 13 will follow later this year or in the first half of 2023. However, Android 14 does not support the Galaxy Note 20 series.

However, if you have a Samsung Galaxy Note 20 phone, the July security patch is already on its way to you. It can take a few days before everyone receives the new OTA (over the air) package because these upgrades are released in groups. Keep an eye out for a notification in the near future. In the Settings app’s Software update section, you can manually check for updates.

More Galaxy devices will receive the July update in the days to come. The July security patch for Samsung devices was first made available last week. The company has already seeded the new SMR to roughly a dozen distinct mobile models with the addition of the Galaxy Note 20 series. These include a few inexpensive versions and the Galaxy S22 and S21 series. In the upcoming days, other qualifying devices—including Galaxy tablets—will join the party. We’ll keep you informed.
