Written by admin

Samsung continues its good streak of software updates with a recent release of the August security patch for Android 12 for the Galaxy S22 Series, Galaxy S21 series and Galaxy S20 series. Yes, technically we are still in the month of July, but Samsung is already preparing its top phones for the month of August!

And it will be a fiery one – Samsung will announce the next generation of foldable devices in the form of the Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4, so all eyes will be on the biggest Android player in the mobile scene. By the way, you can reserve your Z Fold 4 or Z Flip 4 now and score nice bonuses!

The latest update to Samsung’s current and ex-flagship lineups, the update doesn’t bring anything special in the form of brand new features, but it doesn’t seem to be just a security update. In fact, the update for the phones comes in at around 420MB, which isn’t that small, and may also include the latest versions of Galaxy Wearable, PENUP, Samsung Health, Samsung Members, and Smart Switch.

Which devices are currently getting the August security patch?

Obviously flagships live in the fast lane, so they get the important updates with priority. Here are the builds that are rolling out to each phone generation:

  • Galaxy S22, S22+, S22 Ultra — S901BXXU2AVG6
  • Galaxy S21 / S21+ / S21 Ultra — G99xBXXU5CVGB
  • Galaxy S20 / S20+ / S20 Ultra — G98xBXXUEFVG5

If you put on one of these phones but haven’t received the update yet, you can manually check if it’s available on your phone by going to Settings > Software Update and see if it’s available to you.
