Although Samsung has updated most of its Galaxy devices to the May 2021 security patch, US carriers are performing similar treatments on restricted smartphones and tablets, as Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra are now receiving new security updates.
T-Mobile and Sprint started sending new firmware updates to the Galaxy Note 20 series in the US. This is not just a small software update, because it brings a security patch for May 2021 (however, Samsung started to release a June patch), as well as improvements in system functions to provide a better overall user experience.
In addition to the May patch, the new Galaxy Note 20 series update also improves the performance of the camera to achieve better photography. At the same time, it also enhanced the “quick sharing” function, you can better share files between Android devices.
If you own one of the Galaxy Note 20 series phones, you can identify the update by the internal version number: Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is N981USQU2DUE1 and N986USQU2DUE1, respectively. It is worth noting that Samsung is advancing software support impressively, but US carriers have not done so.
Well, like every time, this is the first release, so the update may take some time to reach every Galaxy Note 20 device in the United States. Before that, you can manually check for software updates by navigating to the device’s settings, then select the software update, and then click download and install.
