Samsung have begun rolling out the much needed 2nd Android 11 updates to their Global models of the Galaxy S20 FE 4G and 5G.

These releases appear to correct a lot of the faults found in their original updates for the S20 FE 4/5G on Android 11 which was initially pushed out 2 months earlier than Samsung's own schedule and has caused numerous connection and data issues.

The releases are...

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 4G

Model: SM-G780F

Build date: 22 December 2020

Android Security patch: January 2021

Build #: G780FXXS1BTL2

Samsung S20 FE 5G

Model: SM-G781B

Build date: 08 January 2021

Android Security patch: January 2021

Build #: G781BXXU1BUA5

Roll-out is initially, mainly to the non-carrier branded phones across the globe with more carrier branded firmwares following in due course.

These are FOTA, (Firmware Over The Air), releases and should appear on your devices in the coming days/weeks.
