In recent years, Samsung has become well known for updating its wide range of Android devices – from budget phones to luxury foldables – to the latest security update in a timely manner. Here are all the phones and tablets that Samsung has updated with the July 2022 security patch.
Samsung July 2022 security update – what’s new
Most security updates come with a few dozen security patches, both for Android in general and some specific to Samsung phones. The July update is no different, bringing fixes for the Android security bulletins of July 1, 2022 and June 5, 2022, with 3 “critical” fixes and 20 “high” fixes.
Beyond general Android security patches, Samsung’s July update fixes 41 issues specific to Galaxy devices, including 7 of “high” severity and 20 of “moderate” severity. One of these security flaws allowed AppLock password protection to be bypassed.
Devices with Samsung July 2022 security update
While Samsung normally rolls out its last security update before the start of the new month, this latest patch wasn’t released until July 1st. For that reason, things may seem a bit slower this month, but we’ll keep the list updated regularly over the years. the coming weeks.
This list will include a note indicating where the update first launched and if it is also available in the United States. As usual, the latest additions will be marked in bold.
Galaxy S series
Given the popularity and level of customer investment in the Galaxy S series, it’s no surprise that Samsung often prioritizes the flagship series when it comes time to release a new security update. Every month, Galaxy S phones that are several years old will get the latest security improvements fairly quickly, though there’s some additional work to be done given the Exynos and Snapdragon variants.
As you’d expect, the first Galaxy S phones to receive this month’s update were the newest, the Galaxy S22 series, on July 4. The Galaxy S21 series was shortly behind, updating on the same day.
Conveniently continuing in release order, Samsung updated the Galaxy S20 FE, including the 5G variant, on July 7. This pattern continued, with the original Galaxy S20 (and its S20+ and Ultra variants) receiving the latest patch on July 11.
The Galaxy S10 Lite, which originally arrived around the same time as the S20 series, was patched on July 13. The rest of the Galaxy S10 series, including the S10e, didn’t see this update until July 28.
For a refreshing change of pace, Samsung released this month’s update for the Galaxy S21 FE in virtually all regions simultaneously, rather than rolling it out steadily over a few weeks.

Galaxy Z Foldables
“Flagship” has taken on some significance in the Android phone market, implying a device with high-end specs and a premium version to match. Arguably, however, Samsung’s real “flagships” over the past few years have been the Galaxy Z series of foldables. Between the Galaxy Z Fold and the Z Flip, Samsung has been at the forefront of foldable Android phones. To this end, Samsung often updates the Galaxy Z series as quickly as the Galaxy S phones.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 was the first foldable to receive this month’s update, starting July 6. Its big brother, the Galaxy Z Fold 3, got an update soon after, on July 7. Going back a generation, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G saw the same update on July 11. Continuing roughly in order, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G was patched on July 18.
The original Galaxy Fold was the last of Samsung’s foldables to pick up this security update, snagging it on July 26.

Galaxy Note series
For many years, Samsung has been a leading creator of stylus-equipped Android smartphones thanks to the Galaxy Note series. While the Galaxy Note series may have come to an end after the Note 20 – with the Galaxy S22 Ultra managing to be much more successful – those who haven’t swapped out phones should still see fairly regular updates.
The Galaxy Note 20 5G was the first device in the series to receive the July security update. The standard Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra launched their update in the US a few days later. The still actively updating Note 10 series picked up the patch in South America on July 9. It was quickly followed by its mid-range counterpart, the Note 10 Lite, on July 12.

Galaxy Tab series tablets
Over the years, beyond its smartphone work, Samsung has become one of the most prolific Android tablet makers. That said, tablets still don’t get the same level of consistent monthly updates as smartphones. Even Samsung’s newest tablets, the Galaxy Tab S8 series, are only slated for quarterly updates.
So far this month, the only Galaxy Tab device to be updated is the Galaxy Tab Active Pro 2019, which was built to be durable. The tablet, which is still running Android 11, received its latest security update on July 9.
- Galaxy Tab Active Pro — T540XXS3CVF3 (first released in Mexico)
Galaxy A series and budget phones
In addition to the many high-end flagship and foldable phones made by Samsung, the Korean phone giant also offers a host of more affordable devices. These range from the mid-range Galaxy A series, the low-end Galaxy M series, and the Flipkart-focused Galaxy F series.
The month started on a strange note, with Samsung rolling out the July 2022 security patch to the Galaxy A32 on July 1. It was followed a few days later by the Galaxy A23, which received its update on July 4.
Then the Galaxy A53 picked up the latest update and security patches on July 7, alongside the affordable Galaxy F62. US versions of the A-series phones started getting the update on July 9, along with the Galaxy A42 5G.
The Galaxy A52 5G was next, with European customers receiving the security update on July 15, with a similar update rolling out to the Galaxy A52s 5G. On the same day, the Galaxy A33 5G resumed its patch, starting with a few countries in Asia. Those in the US received their next A-series update on July 18, with this year’s Galaxy A13 getting bumped.
Things continued on July 22, when the Galaxy A72 got the security patch along with camera improvements. A few days later, on July 26, Samsung began rolling out updates for the Galaxy A01 Core and Galaxy A10 simultaneously. These were followed quite closely by the Galaxy M52 5G and M53 5G on July 28.
