We are approaching the end of December and the year 2022, and Samsung hasn’t stopped rolling out software updates to its smartphones and tablets. The latest Galaxy phones to get the new security update are the Galaxy S20 FE 5G and the Galaxy S21 FE.
The Galaxy S20 FE 5G is getting the December 2022 security update in Europe with firmware version G781BXXS4GVL1. The Galaxy S21 FE is getting the latest security update with firmware version G990BXXS2DVL1. If you can remember, Samsung launched a newer version of the Galaxy S21 FE in some markets with no hardware changes, and that variant of the phone (SM-G990B2) is getting the update in Europe with firmware version G990B2XXS1DVL1.
If you have any of these two phones and if you live in Europe, you can download and install the new software update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping Download and install. You can also download the new firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually.
Samsung debuted the Galaxy S20 FE two years in the second half of 2020, with Android 10 onboard, while the Galaxy S21 FE was launched earlier this year with Android 12 onboard. Both phones are currently running Android 13, and it could be the last major Android OS update for the Galaxy S20 FE 5G.
