Samsung November 2022 update rolling out to Galaxy devices


Samsung is continuing its streak of offering consistently timely updates for its full line of Android smartphones. Many Galaxy phones and tablets have already begun receiving Samsung’s November 2022 security update.

Samsung November 2022 security update – here’s what’s new:

Every month, Google and its partners release a new Android security patch, publicly detailing every way in which your smartphone is safer with each update. The security patch that’s arriving now on Galaxy phones includes the new fixes from the November 1, 2022, bulletin as well as the October 5 bulletin. In total, between the two Android bulletins, which also include Qualcomm-specific fixes, Samsung devices will see 34 fixes, including three considered critical and 30 marked high severity.

Meanwhile, Samsung also expands on the base Android patch with security improvements of its own as well as fixes for issues specific to Samsung devices and apps. According to the company’s official patch notes, the November update supplements Google’s changes with 26 fixes to Samsung specific issues, two of which are marked high severity.

For some Samsung Galaxy phones, the November patch brings a much bigger change, coinciding with the update to Android 13 and One UI 5.0.

Devices with the Samsung November 2022 security update

As you’d hope, Samsung generally gives priority to its most premium phones when it comes to new updates, with the focus on the Galaxy S and Galaxy Z series. From there, Samsung usually rolls out updates to its newer devices before older ones, generally speaking.

This list will include a note on where the update first debuted and if it is also available in the United States. As usual, the latest additions will be marked in bold.

Galaxy S Series

For years now, Samsung’s Android lineup has been led by the Galaxy S series of flagships. The phones pack an in-depth set of features and premium materials that seek to appeal to as wide an audience as possible. Given the premium cost of the phones, it’s to be expected that Samsung would give the Galaxy S series special attention for Android updates.

Samsung’s Galaxy S series flagships started getting this month’s update beginning with an odd choice, the Galaxy S10 Lite. The 2019 phone got patched on November 11, ahead of other Galaxy S phones. The more recent Galaxy S21 FE was close behind, picking up the update later that day.

Galaxy Z Series foldables

In short order, the Galaxy Z series of Flips and Folds has taken the crown from the Galaxy S phones to become Samsung’s true “flagship” Android devices. As such, Samsung has given both the Galaxy Z Flip and Z Fold phones high priority when it comes to security updates, often being among the first to receive each month’s patch.
