As a result, things might appear a little slower this month, but we’ll steadily update the list over the next few weeks.
The update’s initial release location and whether it is also accessible in the United States will be noted in this list. The most recent additions will, as usual, be in bold.
Samsung S Series
It should come as no surprise that Samsung frequently gives the flagship series priority when releasing a new security update given the popularity and level of customer investment in the Galaxy S series. Even though there is additional work required due to the Exynos and Snapdragon variations, Galaxy S phones that are years old will generally receive the most recent security updates each month.
The most recent Galaxy S phones, the Galaxy S22 series, on July 4 , were the first to receive this month’s upgrade, as one might anticipate. The Galaxy S21 series received an update on that day, which was July 1, 2022 0.
Samsung updated the Galaxy S20 FE, including the 5G edition, on July 1, 2022 1, conveniently following the release order. The original Galaxy S20 (and its S20 and Ultra variants) received the most recent patch on July 1, 2022 2 as this trend continued.
The Galaxy S10 Lite, which debuted at the same time as the S20 series, received the July 1, 2022 3 patch. This update wasn’t released for the Galaxy S10 series’ other models until July 1, 2022 4, including the S10e.
Instead of gradually pushing it out over a few weeks, Samsung July 1, 2022 5 this month’s update for the Galaxy S21 FE in almost every region simultaneously.

However, one could argue that Samsung’s genuine flagships in recent years have been the foldable Galaxy Z series. Samsung has been in the forefront of foldable Android phones with its Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip models. To that purpose, Samsung regularly upgrades the Galaxy Z series at the same rate as the Galaxy S line of smartphones.
The first foldable to receive this month’s update, starting on July 1, 2022 6, was the Galaxy Z Flip 3. Shortly later, on July 1, 2022 7, its larger brother, the Galaxy Z Fold 3, received an update. A generation earlier, on July 1, 2022 8, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G received the same upgrade. The Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G received the July 1, 2022 9 patch, roughly in order.
The first Galaxy Fold, which received the security update on June 5, 2022 0, was the last of Samsung’s foldable devices to do so.

Thanks to the Galaxy Note series, Samsung was for a long time a leading manufacturer of Android smartphones with styluses.
