Galaxy S21 FE, S10 Lite & M52 get Samsung's May 2023 update

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE AM AH 13

Samsung has released the May 2023 Android security patch for the Galaxy S21 FE, Galaxy S10 Lite, and Galaxy M52 5G. These phones follow dozens of other models to the company’s latest security update part. More eligible models will join in the coming days.

The Galaxy S21 FE started picking up Samsung’s May SMR (Security Maintenance Release) last week. The initial rollout was limited to users in select Latin American countries.

Today, the Korean firm has released the new SMR for the device in several more markets. The update is available in a host of European countries. Depending on the model number, the updated firmware version for the phone is G990BXXS4EWE3 or G990B2XXS3EWE3 (via).

Samsung should expand the availability of the May update for the Galaxy S21 FE to more regions in the coming days, including the US. Don’t expect anything major here, though. The latest firmware release for the “affordable flagship” only brings this month’s security fixes. That’s unless the company has other plans when it comes to the May update for the phone in the rest of the world. In that case, we will make sure to let you know.


Meanwhile, the May SMR is now rolling out to the Galaxy S10 Lite in Latin America. A screenshot shared on Twitter confirms the release in Brazil, though it may also be available in other countries in the region. The new firmware build number for the phone is G770FXXS7HWE1. The device doesn’t appear to be getting anything apart from the latest vulnerability patches. A wider rollout should be just around the corner.

The Galaxy M52 5G is also getting Samsung’s May 2023 security update

The Galaxy M52 5G is another Samsung smartphone that has just started receiving the May security update. The company has begun the rollout in Latin America. The update appears to be widely available in the region, including in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, and Peru. Once again, there are no additional goodies to look forward to here. You can check out the official changelog here. The new firmware version is M526BXXS2CWE3.

The latest security update will reach more eligible Galaxy smartphones and tablets in the coming days. Samsung has already revealed that the May SMR patches more than 70 vulnerabilities, including at least six critical flaws. We will let you know when the company seeds these patches to other Galaxy devices. Meanwhile, you can manually check for new updates from your phone’s Settings app.
