South Korean Samsung started the new year with new updates. The January 2021 security patch was released this week for a number of Samsung Galaxy phones. The update trend started with the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S20 series. Now, this update has come to Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy S20 FE and Galaxy Note 10 Lite models. Samsung security patches are likely to come to the Galaxy A family in the coming days.
Unfortunately, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 Lite are not yet updated to Android 11. However, these models are expected to be updated to Android 11 soon. In addition, these models will have One UI 3.0 interface with Android 11.
The security update for Galaxy Note 20, Note 20 Ultra and Galaxy S20 FE owners came in the past weeks. For these models, the One UI 3.1 update, which will probably come with the Galaxy S21, will arrive in March.
If you own any of these devices, you can check if the January update is available by opening the phone’s Settings app, navigating to the Software update section, and selecting Download and install.
As always, new updates will not be immediately available worldwide. That’s why we think that the model sold in Turkey will update in the coming weeks.
Google’s security update policy seems to continue stably in 2021. We hope other phone manufacturers will quickly release the January security update.
