Samsung is now rolling out a new firmware update to Galaxy S20 users in some European countries, including Germany and Netherlands. Interestingly enough, in Germany, the update carries a firmware version number G98xxXXU5BTJ3, while users in the Netherlands are getting G98xxXXU5BTJ1. While the firmware version may be different depending on where you live, the update changelog is pretty much the same everywhere.
The latest update includes no new features, as you’d expect from a firmware update. What makes the update super important is the fact that it includes the Android October 2020 Security patch and camera improvements. However, the changelog doesn’t go into details of what kind of camera improvements it adds.
While the update is currently rolling out to the S20 users in Europe, we expect it to become available for everyone very soon. Meanwhile, if you’re not based in Europe, you can check the update manually by going to Settings> Software update.
The Galaxy S20 will also be updated to the Android 11-based OneUI 3.0. Additionally, S20 handsets are also eligible for two more major software updates, meaning they will also receive Android 12 and Android 13 updates. After three major software updates, S20 users will get only regular security updates and no new features.
