Samsung's recently launched smartphone, the Galaxy S20 FE 5G has started receiving an update that improves its touchscreen stability. Besides this, users are also getting the January 2021 Android security patch. Although it is not for sure when this firmware update will be coming to India, according to a report by SamMobile, this has started rolling out in countries across Europe.

It is worth mentioning that this is the company's fourth firmware update that includes touchscreen stability improvements. As per the report, the Galaxy S20 FE 5G update brings the firmware version to G81BXXU1BUA5. The OS update weighs some 263MB. 

The firmware rollout comes after some Galaxy S20 FE 5G users took it to forums to complain about the touchscreen stability issue a couple of months ago. As per some users, the smartphone registered ghost touches and stuttered while scrolling or zooming in the UI.
