Samsung July 2023 security patch details

Samsung starts April 2023 security update rollout for Galaxy smartphones. The new firmware brings the latest Android plus One UI patches to ensure the best level of security on your Galaxy. As the rollout has recently begun for the S23 series, you can expect wider availability in the coming days.

Unlike the last two months, Samsung seeded the latest Android patch for the latest flagship lineup, ahead of Google’s Pixel phones running stock Android. The Pixel maker has not yet published the patch details, and at the same time, Samsung is bringing the patch with OTA.

At present, the April 2023 patch is just limited to South Korean users, which was first released two days ago. As April begins today, Galaxy fans won’t have to wait much anymore to grab the new software on their Galaxy device in the international market.

For the Galaxy S23 series, Samsung’s latest firmware brings a long list of changes including camera features, improvements, optimization, bug fixes, and code changes. The same treatment is likely to be provided to the Galaxy S22 series, however, other devices may get just a security boost.

Recently, we’ve created the April 2023 One UI Updates page, which keeps a track of all the new firmware releases happening this month. You can either bookmark the page or follow our socials to stay connected with new One UI update rollouts.

Similar to Google, Samsung has not yet detailed the April 2023 One UI patch, but it’s going to fix the severe Exynos modem-related vulnerability. The company has already patched five of those 6 flaws, while the remaining one will be patched this month.

How to update:

To trigger manual firmware download, open your phone’s Settings, followed by Software update and Download and install. Your Galaxy device will connect to Samsung’s server and find out the latest available over-the-air update in a few seconds.

Samsung may develop own mechanism if Android forces A/B Seamless Updates

Samsung Janaury 2023 update list

Samsung is known to provide its users with a seamless and uninterrupted experience but the Korean tech giant is refusing to adopt Google’s A/B Seamless Updates mechanism. However, now it seems that Samsung could develop its own mechanism if Android continues to force it.

As per the latest input, Android is shifting towards a future where A/B Seamless Updates will be the only supported update mechanism revealed through a comment of AOSP. However, this will make it difficult for Samsung to keep denying seamless updates for its Galaxy devices.

This might bring hope to users, who want seamless update support for their Galaxy devices, but Samsung has some different plans that you can’t think about. It means rather than adopting an Android seamless update, Samsung may develop its own mechanism that will offer its users an ultimate experience.

Mishaal Rahman states,

  • Samsung could still technically avoid using Seamless Updates. The company could develop its own update mechanism for use with its devices, or simply revert Google’s change in affected Android versions.
