Samsung seems to have finally opened the floodgates to its June security update. Shortly after rolling out the new security patch to the past three generations of foldables globally, the company is updating a bunch of other models. The Galaxy S23 FE, Galaxy S22, Galaxy S21, Galaxy S20 FE, and Galaxy Note 20 series are getting the update in several markets, including the US.

More Galaxy devices join Samsung’s June Update party

Samsung began its June SMR (Security Maintenance Release) rollout slowly. In the first ten days of the month, the company only updated 3-4 devices, including the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S23. However, the company has now picked up the pace. As reported earlier today, the latest security patch is rolling out globally to Galaxy foldables launched in 2021 and beyond. We can confirm the availability of the new SMR for more devices.

The Galaxy S23 FE, which picked up the update on carrier-locked units in the US a few days ago, is getting it widely. The June SMR is available for unlocked units stateside with the firmware build number S711U1UES4CXE3. Additionally, the Fan Edition handset is being updated to the new security patch across Asia. The new build number in the region is S711BXXS3CXE8. Samsung should soon update the phone in other regions.

For the Galaxy S22 series, the update is live in the US with build numbers S90*USQS5EXE3 (carrier-locked) and S90*U1UES5EXE3 (unlocked). European units are getting the build number S90*BXXSAEXEC. Samsung’s official changelog confirms that the devices aren’t picking up anything more than this month’s security fixes. The June SMR patches 59 vulnerabilities across the Galaxy family, including a critical one.

The Galaxy S21 series is also initially getting the June security update in Europe and the US. The new build numbers for the 2021 Samsung flagships are G99*BXXSBGXED and G99*USQSBGXF1. The June SMR for the Galaxy S20 FE is available on carrier-locked units in the US with the build number G781USQSGHXF1. It shouldn’t be long before the Korean firm expands the rollout to all eligible units of these devices globally.

The Galaxy Note 20 series is getting the new SMR globally

The June SMR is rolling out globally to the Galaxy Note 20 series. The last Note phones are getting the update widely in the US. The new build numbers are N98*USQS7HXF1 and N98*U1UES7HXF1. In Europe, the update comes with the build number N98*FXXSBHXF1 for 4G models (Samsung didn’t release 4G models in the US) and N98*BXXSBHXF1 for 5G models.
