Mysterious update released for several Galaxy phones in Europe

After quite a long delay, Samsung finally brought the latest security patch (June 2024) to select smartphones this week, and we expected more Galaxy devices to receive similar updates in the coming days. However, Samsung seems to have other plans.

In Europe, Samsung has released new updates for multiple Galaxy smartphones, and these updates all include last month’s security patch. Even the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S24 series, which were updated with the June 2024 security patch in some markets earlier this week, are getting an update with the older security patch in Europe.

While security has not been improved in these updates, they should bring other improvements as suggested by their firmware versions. Samsung hasn’t said what those improvements are, but it’s possible the company is trying to fix some of the bugs and issues (including high battery drain) that users have been dealing with since updating their phones to One UI 6.1.

The full list of devices getting this mysterious update is as follows:

Samsung is also bringing the May 2024 security update to the Galaxy A34 and Galaxy Tab S7 FE for the first time. Both devices were recently updated to One UI 6.1, and now, with almost half of June gone, they’re getting last month’s security improvements in the European region.
