Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Review AM AH 8

The latest smartphone from Samsung to join the list of devices that are receiving the April 2021 security update is the entire Galaxy S20 series.

The Galaxy S20 series includes the Galaxy S20, S20+, and the S20 Ultra. This is quick from Samsung since it recently started pushing the latest security patches across its portfolio.

According to Sammobile, this new April 2021 security update for the Galaxy S20 series is live for users in Germany. Moreover, it was spotted first on Tuesday.


There is no information if the update has reached more countries or not. However, we expect in the coming days, the update will make its way to more regions.

Being an incremental security patch, it simply bumps the security patch level to April 1, 2021, and does not bring any new features or improvements for the phone.

Well, it does bring a bunch of fixes for severe vulnerabilities. For more information on that, you can head over to the official Samsung Security Bulletin for the month of April.
