Before December even began, Samsung had already started rolling out the new December security update, although certainly not as quickly as it had been in recent months. Initially, Samsung rolled out the update to some of its expensive devices, in particular its lineup of Galaxy Z foldable. That list has only grown and grown with time.
Samsung has tremendously improved its software game in recent years, going from one of the worst OEMs for software updates to one of the best. Samsung started the month by rolling out the December 2021 Security Update to the Samsung Galaxy Flip 3, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and other flagships. Gradually, the South Korean electronics giant has pushed the update for more affordable models like the Galaxy A71, Galaxy A32 5G, and Galaxy S20 FE.
