Samsung has begun deploying its March 2024 security updates to a range of Galaxy smartphones and foldables, enhancing protection against potential vulnerabilities and threats.

The over-the-air updates have arrived for the international variants of several devices, including the Galaxy S20 FE 5G, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and Galaxy Z Flip 3. While availability currently varies by region, the company plans a broader rollout in the coming days.

For the mid-range Galaxy S20 FE 5G, Samsung issued firmware version G781BXXS9HXB4, which was first made accessible to users in Brazil. The 253.54MB package delivers fixes for dozens of security exposures rated as high or critical risks.

"At the moment, the company is rolling out the new software update in Brazil, and it should make the firmware available in other regions gradually over the next few days," wrote Abid Iqbal Shaik, a reporter covering the update's availability.

The premium foldable Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 have commenced receiving the March patches in Europe, with firmware builds F926BXXS6GXBD and F711BXXS7GXBD, respectively. These updates further bolster security ahead of an imminent One UI 6.1 release slated for the coming weeks.

While Samsung's newer foldables already incorporated the latest patches, the company has now extended the monthly security maintenance to encompass its 2021 flagships, underscoring its commitment to supporting devices through extended software lifecycles.

"Launched back in 2021, the Galaxy S20 FE was the first Fan Edition model from Samsung, and this device got beloved by users because of its ultimate features and functionalities," noted Chae Won, a tech writer. "Therefore, Samsung keeps on optimizing its performance and security with regular security updates."

Samsung's prompt rollout of the March updates aligns with its practice of providing consistent security enhancements across its Galaxy ecosystem. Users can manually check for the new firmware through their device settings, ensuring their smartphones remain fortified against emerging threats.
