Samsung is pushing a new software update to its Galaxy S20 series. The update, which is currently available to download over the air (OTA) in Hong Kong and Taiwan, packs some camera improvements. It also brings the latest April 2020 Android security patch.

This is the second camera update Samsung has pushed to the Galaxy S20 series since its release early last month. The previous update brought much-needed improvements to the autofocus performance of the Galaxy S20 Ultra camera after users complained about wobbly focus from its 108-megapixel sensor.

It also packed some general camera improvements for the Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus. Although the Galaxy S20 Ultra leads the line with a giant 108-megapixel main camera, the other two S20 models aren't any less either.

They've proven to be just as good with their 64-megapixel primary sensor. Check out our detailed spec comparison to see how the three Galaxy S20 phones stack up.

Galaxy S20 already receiving the April 2020 security patch

Samsung has recently been doing excellently when it comes to pushing out monthly Android security maintenance release. We're just entering the month of April and the South Korean giant has already released the April 2020 security patch to several Galaxy smartphones.

The Galaxy S10, Note 10, S8, and now, the Galaxy S20 have all received the latest Android security update. Neither Google nor Samsung has yet officially published the patch details.

The new update for the Galaxy S20 series comes with build number G98x0ZHU1ATCT in Hong Kong and Taiwan.

The OTA download size for the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G weighs in at around 435MB. The build number and download size may vary according to the device mode, region, and carrier, though.

It's also worth mentioning that Samsung devices sold in markets like China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan often get software updates different from what they get in the rest of the world.

So while the April security patch will certainly arrive at some point for the Galaxy S20 series all countries, this specific update may not.

Nevertheless, Samsung's Galaxy S20 devices pack stellar camera hardware. The company will no doubt continue improving its performance with software updates.

Those rocking a Galaxy S20 phone in Hong Kong and Taiwan can manually check for the update from the phone's Settings » Software update menu. People residing in other parts of the world will have to wait a little longer. You should get a notification once the OTA update becomes available for your unit.
