A lot to uncover; make sure you stick till the end

The Galaxy S22 Devices is Already Getting the March Android Security Patch

If you've been following weekly firmware updates from Updato for quite some time now, knowing that Samsung releases future versions of patches won't be an unusual encounter. However, I'm pretty sure the newbies will find it amusing.

It's still February, but the company is ready with the March variant of the Android security patch. Released for the recently launched S22 family, which includes the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra, the devices are actually getting their first-ever software update. Currently exclusive for the European market, the new build bags the version number S90xBXXU1AVBF. Keep in mind, here, x denotes the digit that is meant to define the device under concern.

Wondering what's new? Well, there is nothing much to talk about. A quick look at the new firmware's changelog won't excite me as it hardly talks about anything apart from optimizing overall stability and bringing improvements in the functions. Still, you can expect the update to fix Galaxy S22 Ultra's screen flicker issue.

The highlight is, of course, the March 1, 2022 security patch. Weighing somewhere around 770MB-820MB, the new firmware is set to level up your device's security.

The Samsung Galaxy Fit 2 Gets Compatibility For Camera Shutter Control 

Announced back in September 2020, the Samsung Galaxy Fit 2 is getting a new firmware update recently. It was March 2021 when the smartwatch got its last update. The new software update for the Galaxy Fit 2 takes a downloading of just 2.16MB and packs a firmware version R220XXU1AVB8. Keep in mind the update is exclusive to the Indian market, but it is expected to reach the global stage soon.

The latest update for Galaxy Fit 2 welcomes three new features. These are:

  • Users can now seamlessly take charge and control their smartphone's camera shutter without any hassle.
  • Sending a message when you decide to decline an incoming call is again a feature that deserves appreciation. 
  • Finally, the update brings the 'Rope Jumpig' counting feature to the scene.

Considering what the changelog conveys, the camera shutter control is limited for the devices which are either running on Android 7.0 Nougat or higher.
