Even before the device has reached the hands of the users, Samsung has released a firmware update for the top-end Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. Some users in Samsung’s home market South Korea may be able to see the update installed on their devices if they have got it. The rest of the world is yet to see the phone shipped to them. This update is said to improve certain camera functions, including an issue reported about the automatic flash. More significantly, this update file includes the Android security update of March 2020. That has raised some eyebrows since the month is yet to be born.
Update will Have Camera Improvements
As indicated, a major component of this firmware update for the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra would be some performance improvements in the camera section. The details have not been shared on what precisely are the camera improvements. The general sense was that the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra comes with one of the best camera modules you can get. What is available is only a screenshot of the update information in the Korean language. The information is that there was an issue reported in the working of the auto flash, which also stands fixed with this update. The update file is fairly large at 418 MB. The relevant firmware version is G988NKSU1ATBR.
March Security Update Included
The practice followed so far in the case of the monthly Android security update patches is Google releases it first for its own Google Pixel devices before the other Android models start getting them. In this case of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, the update for the March security patch has been announced and sent OTA on February 25 itself. Google may send the updates for its Pixel devices only after the month of March is born, usually in the first week.
This information is only about the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. Experts feel similar updates may be sent for the other two models, the Samsung Galaxy S20 and S20+ as well. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has received some rave reviews and may be the most coveted smartphone in the market at present.
