According to reports, the Samsung Galaxy S10 series has already started receiving its August 2020 Android security patch in August 2020, a few days earlier than in early August. The South Korean electronics giant recently updated its flagship smartphone, which has become faster, which is another example of its software priority. According to the report, the update has only been applied to most Galaxy S10 models in Germany so far. The firmware version number of the internal version is G97xFXXU8CTG4.
SamMobile reported that Samsung has provided security patches in the August 2020 update of the Galaxy S10 (SM-G973F), Galaxy S10+ (SM-G975F) and Galaxy S10e (SM-G970F). Although this new version is currently only available in Germany, it is expected that similar versions will be launched in other countries in the next few days. The report added that so far, users will not be able to downgrade to an older update after installing this new security update. Samsung usually releases security updates in batches like this.
Currently, no change log is provided, but the publication speculates based on the firmware version that the patch will bring more security changes. Having said that, the changes are not expected to be significant, because the Samsung Galaxy S10 series is running the recently released One UI 2.1. You can check whether your Samsung Galaxy S10 phone meets the requirements for security updates by opening Settings> Software Update> Download and Install.
