Samsung July 2022 security update – what’s new
To ensure that customers whose devices are affected by security attacks do not release the patch notes for each monthly update until quite a few phones have received them. Likewise, Google hasn’t yet shared what’s in the basic Android version of this month’s update, as this information is usually not released until Pixel phones have received the update.
Most security updates come with several dozen security fixes, both for Android in general and some specifically for Samsung phones. We’ll be closely monitoring Samsung to release these patch notes in the coming days.

While the Galaxy Note series may have ended after the Note 20, with the Galaxy S22 Ultra managing to become significantly more success – those who haven’t switched phones should still see fairly regular updates.
So far, the Galaxy Note 20 is the only device in the series to get the July security update (and even then just the 5G model), but that should steadily change as the month goes on.
