Samsung has kicked off the rollout of its latest security update for August 2023. This round of updates has already made its way to a selection of Galaxy devices, and now it’s setting its sights on the Galaxy Note 20 series.
As of now, the freshest update is exclusively accessible to users in China and certain Southeast European countries.
The most recent August 2023 update is accompanied by its unique build numbers for both the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. In Southeast European regions, you’ll encounter the firmware version N98xFXXS8HWH3. Meanwhile, those in China are treated to the latest August 2023 update sporting the build code N98x0ZSS6HWG8.
However, it’s worth noting that this particular August 2023 update doesn’t introduce any novel features or performance enhancements. Its focus lies solely on bolstering the system’s security, enhancing user safety, and safeguarding their privacy compared to the prior iteration. This, undoubtedly, brings a heightened sense of security to users.
This update does an admirable job of addressing nearly 85 security vulnerabilities. Google has been responsible for addressing up to 50 security issues, applicable across all Android devices.
The remaining 35 have been diligently tackled by Samsung, primarily benefiting the Galaxy lineup. Additionally, this update effectively irons out all lingering bugs and known issues from the previous version, which had been causing disruptions and inconveniences for users.
These comprehensive fixes could potentially lead to a smoother overall system performance. Although, it’s worth mentioning that this update doesn’t bring any enhancements specifically targeting device performance.
Now, for those who wish to fortify their security, enhance privacy, and enjoy a seamlessly functional device, the pathway is clear. Users are encouraged to update their system software to the latest August 2023 version.
The process can be initiated by navigating to Settings, followed by Software Update, and then tapping on Download and Install. This simple series of steps ensures a seamless transition to the latest update.
