Carrier-unlocked users of Samsung Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra are now getting the August 2022 Android security patch update in the US. The update comes with new improvements and optimizations to the phone’s system.
According to the official information, the security and stability of your phone’s system have been improved with the latest update. Various privacy and security-related vulnerabilities and exploits have also got the fix so that you can enjoy the best performance of your device.
Not only this but Samsung’s August 2022 patch also brings a fix for a dangerous Dialer bug that allowed local attackers to access ICCID via logs. It includes SVE-2022-0726(CVE-2022-33724) which harms the native Dialer app.
It’s worth mentioning that recently, Samsung expanded the August patch for the Galaxy S20 series in its hometown. Aside from security and privacy enhancements, that update also brought improvements for the 11 stock apps in order to speed up the phone’s performance and deliver a more reliable experience.
Meanwhile, the same month’s patch in this United States doesn’t bring any such app upgrades. Also, the updated package size which is just 245 MB suggests that no noticeable changes will be appeared after installing the update.
Still, since the monthly patch is responsible for your phone’s better performance and privacy, we suggest you download it.
