    Samsung has just launched its Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra smartphones but before the series went on sale, they already have received their first software update. Weighing 500MB, the update doesn't mention what firmware it brings however, it does reveal the Android security patch version as August 1, 2020. 

    The screenshot shared by Sammobile also states that the update may include device stability improvements, bug fixes, new or enhanced features along with further improvements to performance. The details, however, were missing. It is said that some early buyers may get this feature as soon as they take it out of the box and boot the smartphone.

    The Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra run Android-based One UI out of the box and in all likeliness will get Android 11 as well.
