The security update in July 2020 has already started rolling out for the Samsung Galaxy S20 series in Korea, with the update with some additional camera enhancements on the trailer.
[[[[Update 07/03]: Next time to get the security update in July 2020 is the current top generation Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ – no word on the 5G variants but (via SamMobile). The updates should be available and rolling out right now if you have a Note 10 drive. Firmware versions N970FXXS5CTFA and N975FXXS5CTFA should roll out right now for Note 10 and Note 10+, respectively, and make sure your device is completely secure with the very latest fix.
However, it is worth noting that the update has only been found so far on Exynos variants of Note 1
[[[[Update 06/30]: The July 2020 patch is now being rolled out for the Samsung Galaxy S10 series (via SamMobile). The update has already been reported by about 20 European countries with firmware version G97xFXXS7CTF3 is already rolling out a lot.
As far as we know, the fix is just that, a security update. No extra features have been added or come to the table. It makes sense given that the One UI 2.1 update brought more to Samsung devices in a similar way to Pixel Feature Drops – hopefully we’ll see more updates like that in the future as well.
If you own the Galaxy S10, you should definitely go to the device Settings> System Updates and check if you have an OTA update waiting to be installed.
It is extremely impressive considering that we do not expect the update until next week. Although not equalizing the impressive speed of the update, OEMs will have access to updates in advance to make the necessary changes.
In Samsung’s home country of South Korea, the July patch is now available as firmware version G98xNKSU1ATFD for all Galaxy S20 series. With a size of about 400 MB, it’s not exactly easy (via SamMobile).
The update of the Galaxy S20 series begins
– Improved camera quality
Enhancing zoom photography with high magnification
Improved video stabilization performance
– Added feature to use Bluetooth microphone when using voice recording app
– The MirrorLink service stopped
Security Update Level: July 1, 2020

The security update in July 2020 is not the only inclusion, as there are some camera improvements on towing – which seems to have been a focal point since it was released with standard S20 updates.
When it arrives in Western markets, the update improves high-magnification zoom photos and overall video stabilization. There are also some additional options, including the ability to record via Bluetooth microphones when using the Samsung Voice Recording app.
Although it comes with some new features, the July patch for the Samsung Galaxy S20 series also removes some things. The update confirms the end of support for MirrorLink, which was an Android Auto competitor – but without the same installation base.
It looks like the update is being launched in Korea first, but we are sure it will expand to more regions in the coming days. If you have seen the patch on your device, be sure to let us know in the comment section below.
