April 2022 security patches begin to hit Samsung Galaxy S22 series

Samsung has been doing a phenomenal job of rolling out Android security updates to its vast portfolio of devices over the past few years. On several occasions, Korean OEMs have released the latest security patches even before Google publishes its monthly security bulletin, and it has achieved the same feat for the upcoming month of April. While Google will publish the April 2022 security bulletin in a few days, Samsung has started rolling out the April 2022 patch for its flagship Galaxy S22 lineup.

Firmware version with a new software update S90xNKSU1AVCK Has started rolling out for Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra in South Korea. In addition to the updated Android security patch level, the new build also improves UHD 30 and 60 fps video recording performance in low memory situations. Considering the huge size of the OTA (around 1.5GB), Samsung may have changed a lot of things under the hood.

Not only that, the Exynos 2200-powered European version of the Galaxy S22 (model no.) SM-S90xB) has also started receiving the security patches for April 2022. firmware version is S90xBXXU1AVCJ, and the size of the incremental update package is approximately 1.3GB. The changelog is slightly different from the Korean model, though it doesn’t mention any camera-related changes.

The update should reach more markets in the coming days. If you haven’t received a notification for the update on your Galaxy S22 yet, you can check for it manually by going to the Software Update section in the Settings app. Note that Samsung will be rolling out the update in a phased manner, and may take some time to appear on your device. However, you can skip the waiting queue and install the new release right now on your Galaxy device by manually flashing it.
