Samsung‘s Galaxy S24 launch may have grabbed the attention of the tech world, but it hasn’t affected the company’s security patch rollouts. It continues to push the latest SMR (Security Maintenance Release) to eligible devices at an incredible pace. As many as six new models recently picked up the January update. The new SMR is available for the Galaxy A52s, Galaxy A31, Galaxy A03, Galaxy Note 10 Lite, Galaxy M51, and Galaxy M42.

More Galaxy devices pick up Samsung’s January security update

As of this writing, the January security update is available for the Galaxy A52s in Europe. It is rolling out with the firmware build number A528BXXS6FXA1. The official changelog supplied by Samsung confirms that the update doesn’t bring anything more than the latest security fixes. It contains a whopping 80 vulnerability patches, including one critical Android OS flaw affecting the entire Android ecosystem.

Samsung will soon push these security fixes to the Galaxy A52s globally (it wasn’t sold in the US). The Galaxy A31 is also in the process of receiving the new security update. It is currently picking up the January SMR in the company’s home country, South Korea. The updated build number for the phone is A315NKSS4DWL1. Launched in March 2020, the device is now in the final stages of its life. It may not get many more security updates.

The Galaxy A03, which arrived in November 2021, still has a lot of life left, though. Samsung is currently pushing this month’s security fixes to the budget handset in Russia with firmware version A035FXXS6CXA3. A global rollout for this phone should be just around the corner. The Galaxy Note 10 Lite, on the other hand, is receiving the update in Latin America. The new build number for the device is N770FXXS9HXA1.

The update is also available for a couple of M-series models

The Galaxy M51 and Galaxy M42 are the other two Samsung devices that recently started picking up this month’s security patch with dozens of vulnerability fixes. The updates for these devices come with the firmware build numbers M515FXXS5DXA1 and M426BXXS7DXA2, respectively.

The OTA (over-the-air) rollouts are currently limited to select markets. However, Samsung will gradually expand its coverage to more users globally over the next few days. As usual, you can navigate to Settings > Software update > Download and install to check for updates manually. You may also get a notification when the update reaches your phone.
