The Samsung Galaxy S22 and S21/S21 FE devices are receiving Samsung’s October 2022 security patch.
The first smartphone line to get the October 2022 security patch is the Samsung Galaxy S22 series. The Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra unlocked models sold in the United States will use the build version S90XU1UES2AVI5. Phones connected to the AT&T, Bluegrass Cellular, and C-Spire networks are currently receiving the update. The update has also been applied to the T-Mobile version of our Samsung Galaxy S22. We anticipate that as time goes on, other carriers will also get the updates.
Although there was that substantial patch back in September that fixed a number of high-priority problems for a number of phones, the changelog is lighter than normal. Samsung has not yet provided any information about this October 2022 patch; it has simply described a number of security upgrades and system stability upgrades.
The firmware upgrade for the Samsung Galaxy S22 series phone with a lock screen will have version S90xUSQS2AVI1. Additionally, the October patch for the Galaxy S22 series is available in Europe as version S90xBXXS2AVI7. Version S908EXXS2AVI7 is available in Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.
In the United States and Germany, Samsung’s Galaxy S21 is getting the October update early. Version G99xU1UES5CVI8 is available in the US, while Version G99xBXXS5CVIF is available in Germany.
The security patch for October is also being applied to the Galaxy S21 FE. As a result, the S21 FE will be the first non-flagship(ish) phone to get the patch for the following month.
Users in India will initially experience software version G990EXXU3CVI8 before it progressively spreads to other regions. The rest of the cast has reportedly already started receiving the October 2022 security patch, and the Galaxy S21 FE patch notes follow suit. Samsung has not yet provided any specifics or notable information on its official security website, despite the fact that this update offers fixes for security and stability improvements.
As usual, the update and download should happen automatically on your Galaxy mobile. You can always manually try to start it if it hasn’t already started and you’re curious by navigating to Settings > Software Update > Downland and installing.
