June 07/2023: Samsung’s dedicated software update teams have been working tirelessly to ensure a steady flow of updates for their devices. The latest addition to the list is the June 2023 security update, which is now being rolled out to the Galaxy S20 series. Following the recent update for the Galaxy Z Flip 4, Samsung is continuing its commitment to delivering the latest security patches to its flagship devices.
The new update, which includes all the necessary fixes from the latest security patch, is currently being released in multiple European markets. However, it appears that the initial release is primarily focused on carrier-specific variants of the Galaxy S20 series. Users can expect to see the firmware version G98xxXXUHHWED associated with this update. Interestingly, this update seems to include more than just the latest security enhancements, although the specific details have yet to be disclosed.
At the time of writing, a comprehensive changelog for this update is not available. Therefore, we are unable to provide information regarding any specific changes, improvements, or new features introduced in this update for Samsung’s 2020 flagship devices. Rest assured, we will update this post as soon as the changelog becomes available. In the meantime, the June 2023 security patch addresses three critical security vulnerabilities in the Android operating system, along with 11 fixes for security flaws discovered on Samsung devices. Those interested can find more detailed information on these fixes here.
Owners of the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra can expect to receive an automatic notification once the update becomes available in their respective markets. However, users can also manually check for the update by navigating to the Settings app on their device, selecting the Software update option, and then tapping on Download and Install. Alternatively, if you are comfortable with manually flashing firmware on your device using a Windows PC, you can download the latest firmware from our archive.
It is worth noting that the Galaxy S20 FE models will receive the June update at a later date, as Fan Edition models are not updated simultaneously with the standard, Plus, and Ultra models. Additionally, for those curious about future software updates, it should be mentioned that the entire Galaxy S20 series, including the S20 FE, is not eligible for Android 14 and One UI 6.0.
As Samsung continues its commitment to delivering timely security updates and enhancing the user experience, Galaxy S20 owners can look forward to a more secure and optimized smartphone experience.
