Samsung April 2023 Security Update Rolling out for Several Galaxy Devices

In the Android world, Samsung currently takes the crown in providing software updates. They provide the most extended software support among other smartphone brands regularly and on time. And now that April has begun, Samsung has started rolling out its devices’ April 2023 security update. It is worth mentioning that even Google has yet to push the update to its Pixel devices.

Google recently pointed out a list of 55 security vulnerabilities in the Android Security Bulletin. The April security update, which is approximately 1 GB in size, released by Samsung addresses those vulnerabilities. On top of that, it also addresses 11 more security flaws, which adds up to 66 issues fixed in total.

In addition, the Galaxy S23 series is said to get a major improvement bump in camera performance with this update.
