Samsung releases December 2022 security update, starting with Galaxy S20

Since Samsung was so focused on rolling out the Android 13 update, it delayed the release of the December 2022 security update by a few days. However, the company has now started rolling out the new security update, starting with the Galaxy S20 series in Europe.

The new software update for the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra bears firmware version G98xBXXSFGVK7. The update is currently available in Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Southeast Europe, Spain, Switzerland, the Baltic region, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, and the UK.

The December 2022 security patch includes fixes for 67 security vulnerabilities found in Android smartphones. It also includes fixes for 26 vulnerabilities found in Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones and tablets. Five of those vulnerabilities have been marked as critical, while 63 vulnerabilities have been termed as ‘high’ priority. Twelve vulnerabilities from the list are marked as ‘moderate’ in Samsung’s monthly security bulletin.

If you are a Galaxy S20 series user and reside in any of the European countries or regions mentioned above, you can download the new software update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping Download and install.
