Despite starting later than expected this month, Samsung is moving quickly to update its devices with the September 2022 Android security patch. The business seeded the most recent security update earlier today to the Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy S20 FE 5G, and the Galaxy A52s. The Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra are now covered by the updated SMR (Security Maintenance Release).
THE SEPTEMBER UPDATE IS COMING FOR THE GALAXY NOTE 20 SERIES. In Europe, the Galaxy Note 20 series is presently running this month’s receiving security update. The new SMR is reportedly accessible in a number of nations in the region, including Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the UK, according to SamMobile, who broke the news of this distribution first. It should soon cross the bounds of Europe and enter other markets, like the US.
The most recent firmware update for the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 4G devices is N98*FXXS5FVH7. The 5G models’ equivalent is N98*BXXS5FVH7. With this update, none seem to experience any significant user-facing changes. Only the vulnerability fixes included in the September SMR are being sent by Samsung.

These represent twenty serious Android OS bugs that have an impact on the entire Android ecosystem. According to Google, several of these security issues could result in local privilege escalation without the requirement for extra execution privileges.
Furthermore, 29 SVE (Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures) problems are fixed in the September SMR. Only the Korean company’s Android products are impacted by these problems. This month’s SVE item patches cover bugs in the System UI, Photo Editor, Video Editor, Telecom application, and call background provider.
If you use a Galaxy Note 20 or Note 20 Ultra and live in Europe, you should begin receiving this update right away. Users in other areas might anticipate it as well. Once the OTA (over the air) package is available, a notification will be sent. The Settings app’s Software update area allows users to manually check for software upgrades.
