Unlocked Galaxy S20 range starts receiving January 2021 security patch in the US


Samsung continues to provide timely updates to its flagship S-Series of smartphones and starts implementing the January 2021 security patch for the unlocked Galaxy S20 series in the United States. The changelog mentions nothing but a jump to the January patch, so don’t wait for new features.

The update has unlocked the S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra and weighs about 230 MB. As always, we will update this page when other Samsung phones receive their patches.

Galaxy S20 Series

  • Unlocked
    • Galaxy S20: G98xU1UES1CTL5, released on January 4.
    • Galaxy S20+: G98xU1UES1CTL5, released on January 4.
    • Galaxy S20 Ultra : G98xU1UES1CTL5, released on January 4.

As usual, the update is carried out in phases, so that the device may not be reached immediately. In our experience, Samsung phones are not always the best at automatically finding available updates, so check under Settings > Software update.
