Each month Samsung gets a head start on security patches by letting one or two come out in the days before actually flipping the calendar, just like it did about a week ago, further solidifying its position as the king of updates. After gaining this head start, Samsung continues to release the August patch for more and more Galaxy smartphones internationally.
We started with the Galaxy A52, which may be a mid-range device, but that hasn’t stopped Samsung from providing it with regular updates and this month is the first device to receive the August 2021 security patch.
That change log was pretty sparse, listing only the usually vague bug fixes and improvements. The update has been spotted in several countries, including Germany, Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine.
Samsung quickly followed the August patches for a couple of other A-series phones, including the A8 and A72. And then it wasn’t long before we saw him bring an early patch to the Galaxy S21, starting in China.
The distribution is expected to expand rapidly to other regions and devices in the coming weeks, and we will keep this article updated with all relevant information.
