Samsung Galaxy S20 series and Note 20 series will no longer receive monthly security updates

  • Samsung Galaxy S20 series will not receive monthly security updates anymore.
  • They will now receive only quarterly updates.
  • Samsung had already stopped Android updates for the Galaxy S20 phones. 

Samsung launched the Galaxy S20 series in 2020 and the company has finally pulled the plug on monthly security updates. Now, instead of getting regular monthly updates, Galaxy S20 users will get quarterly updates. Samsung had already stopped rolling out Android updates after the three-year cycle, and now the frequency of security updates has been reduced as well. The Galaxy Note 20 series will also stop receiving monthly security updates.

  • Samsung isn’t discontinuing security updates but is reducing the frequency from monthly to quarterly for the Galaxy S20 series, according to a report by Android Authority
  • This applies to the entire lineup including the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, Galaxy S20 Ultra, and the Galaxy S20 FE as well.
  • Samsung has rolled out the March 2024 security updates already so starting now you’ll get the next update in three months.
  • While this ensures your phone is still getting security updates, it won’t be entirely protected anymore. So you might want to upgrade your phone if you want it to stay secure and updated. 

In addition to the Galaxy S20 series, the Galaxy Note 20 series will also no longer receive monthly security updates. Samsung has already axed the Note lineup but if you’re still holding on to one, this too might be prone to security issues as well. 

Samsung might have almost given up on its older flagship models but earlier this year it announced seven years of Android upgrades and security updates. But this is only for the Galaxy S24 series and newer models. Up until now, it has been providing three years of updates for its smartphones. The latest move puts the South Korean brand closer to Google and Apple who are known to be consistent with software updates even for its dated devices.
