Google’s Pixels and Samsung’s S20 family get July security patches

It may not be July 1st, but today could be the first Monday of the month, and that means something: Google is preparing to send out a brand new batch of monthly security patches to its still supported Pixels. This time around there is no feature drop like last month, so all you are getting are security fixes – but hey, those are very important too, which means that your phone isn’t exposed to nasty vulnerabilities.

As usual with Google rollouts, it might be a few days (or even weeks) before all supported Pixel units available get the update, however it is finally on the way. The build number for all devices is QQ3A.200705.002.

Google's Pixels and Samsung's S20 family get July security patches

Samsung can be rolling out the July patches to the members of its flagship Galaxy S20 family, having even preceded Google’s rollout by way of a few days in a few markets. Over in the US, you are getting build number G98xU1UES1ATFB (where “x” is just a different digit based on which member of the S20 line you own). Over in Europe, the organization is rolling out build G98xxXXU3ATFG (where the lowercase “xx” once more varies by specific model).

There’s no changelog out yet for the usa models, however for the EU Exynos-based devices, aside from the new security fixes, you’re also promised improved camera performance, at least on the S20 Ultra 5G.
