If the Galaxy A20 was a flagship, it would have been a well-maintained one. But as it happens to be an entry-level smartphone from 2019, it’s at the very least a testament to how Samsung’s software support policy has lately been out of this world. Case in point: select variants of the Galaxy A20 have already started receiving the March 2021 Android security update.
The over-the-air package identified by build version A205XXDXU9BUC4 has been spotted in parts of Asia within the last 12 hours. And going by Samsung’s software versioning practices, this release appears to include some extra bells and whistles in the form of bug fixes, performance improvements, and the like.
Not bad for a device that will be pushing three in just a few weeks from now, right? Unfortunately, the Galaxy A20 isn’t included in Samsung’s 2020 promise of three generations’ worth of Android OS updates, but given the array of smartphones that are, it only narrowly missed out on being part of that crowd.
Anyone half as eager to get their hands on this update as Samsung was to develop it can try triggering a manual installation before the gradual rollout reaches their Galaxy A20. This can be accomplished by launching the Settings app, scrolling down to the Software update section on the bottom, and tapping Download and install on the final screen. Alternatively, our firmware archives already provide mirrors of full system images compiled for the Galaxy A20. Just make sure you’re flashing them to a compatible device and make a full backup or three prior to any tinkering. By the time you’re done, Xiaomi and co. might remember to look at the calendar.
