As a long-term Samsung person, I’ve witnessed first-hand the Hollywood-style comeback Samsung has made when it comes to how its telephones get updates. Gone are the times of ready virtually a 12 months for important model adjustments, or being a number of months behind on safety patches. Not solely have Samsung units been receiving updates quicker than ever earlier than, in some circumstances, Samsung has even overwhelmed Google to the punch. It is now carried out so once more, with Samsung beginning its rollout of Might’s safety patch for the S20 collection.

Experiences of this replace first began surfacing somewhat earlier within the week. The changelog here’s a little sparse, touching solely on safety points; earlier updates, together with one I obtained on Monday for the S20 Extremely, talked of enhancements to the digicam. Whereas we’re now solely taking a look at basic safety fixes and efficiency enhancements, this new construct does weigh in at 170MB, which is a little more than we would count on for a plain-old safety patch. Time will inform if there’s anything buried on this replace, however because it stands, a launch this early continues to be extremely spectacular.

Not solely is that this the primary OEM to start out delivering this month’s bulletin, however these are additionally the primary few telephones, full cease. Google’s Pixels are nonetheless gathering mud with the April patch, in any case. Exaggeration apart, it is praiseworthy of Samsung to really change issues round from the times of TouchWiz and set a brand new normal with One UI. Thus far there are studies of this replace showing in a number of nations, so it should not be lengthy earlier than it reaches your system.
