Samsung is on a roll with software update delivery. Known once for being the slowest one to update its high-end phones, Samsung now delivers the Android updates faster than anyone else. As proof, Samsung does it again! This time, it is for the Android June Security patch that has been delivered to its Galaxy S22 and Galaxy Z Fold 2 smartphones — way before Google delivered it for its Pixel devices. Prior to this, Samsung also updated the Galaxy S21 series and Galaxy Tab S7 series to the June Security patch.

Based on reports from several forums, Samsung is now seeding the June security patch to the Galaxy S22 series devices in the United Arab Emirates for now. The update reaches the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus, and Galaxy S22 Ultra — all of them running on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip. Nothing is known about the Exynos version yet. In India, our units for the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Ultra are yet to receive the update.
