Galaxy S20 Series Starts Receiving March 2024 Security Update

Samsung is rolling out a new software update for the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra in select markets. The update, which brings the March 2024 security patch, arrives nearly a month after the February update for these devices.

The update, identified by firmware versions ending in HXC1, is currently available in some European countries. A wider rollout is expected across Europe and other regions in the coming days. Users of the Galaxy S20 FE can also expect a similar update to land on their devices soon.

Since the Galaxy S20 series is no longer in line for major operating system or feature updates, the March patch focuses solely on improving the devices' security. As is typical with security updates, the March patch addresses vulnerabilities in both the Android operating system and Samsung's One UI interface, with a specific focus on fixing nine vulnerabilities within One UI.

For those eager to get the update now, the latest firmware for the Galaxy S20 lineup is available for download from SamMobile's archives. However, this method requires a Windows PC. Samsung recommends users check for the update directly on their devices first by navigating to Settings > Software update. It's worth noting that the update might not be available immediately upon checking, even if it's live in your region.
