Samsung continues to roll out the January security patch by making it now available on its older smartphones. After the Galaxy S20 and other models, this time it is the Galaxy S10, Note 20 and S20 FE that are concerned. As usual, you may have to wait a few days before you can benefit from it.
The january security patch continues its path among Samsung devices. First deployed on the Galaxy S9 then on the Galaxy Note 10, A10, A50 before some Google Pixels, it is now the turn of three models of the Korean firm to benefit from it: the Galaxy S10, Note 20 and S20 FE. Note that the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 20 Ultra is also affected.
However, this patch is not to be confused with the January Android patch, deployed among others on the Galaxy S20s, and which includes the security patch for the same month. The Galaxy S10, Note 20, S20 FE will therefore have to wait a little longer before installing Android 11. However, as the update is already available for the Galaxy S10 Lite in certain regions, these models should not delay to have access to it too.

As the official presentation of the future Galaxy S21 approaches on January 14, Samsung’s older models therefore benefit from the latest security patch, unlike some competing smartphones that are included. the December patch, or even November 2020 in their version of Android 11. For the Galaxy Note 20, Note 20 Ultra and Galaxy S20 FE, this will be the second update operating system in some regions.
