Samsung, again acting first, made its monthly security update available before Google. The update to the S20, S21 and Z Flip series began to be released in many regions of the world.
When it comes to releasing Android updates, Samsung has done it again. Google, the owner of Android, has not yet released its June security update, while the Korean tech giant has already begun releasing the regulation.
Samsung had previously taken the lead in bringing monthly updates to its flagships, outperforming many smartphone makers such as Google. June update may have already started airing in South Korea at the end of May. The update is now set to reach more countries.
Samsung issues monthly update first
The software update, named ‘G99xBXXU3AUE8’, began to be released in the United Arab Emirates for the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra models. The main focus of the update was to implement the June security arrangements. Meanwhile, Samsung’s foldable phone, the Z Flip 5G, has received a similar update. Z flip’s update, called ‘F707BXXS3DUE1’, has become available in many European countries.
Another series that received a June security update was the Galaxy S20 series. Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra devices in many countries, especially Luxembourg and the UK, reached the update early, and new countries continue to be added to the list.
If you have one of the above devices, it’s only a matter of time before the new update reaches your phone. With a warning from the notification bar, you can download the security update of the month before many devices.
