It is worth noting that the Samsung Galaxy S10 series is the first set of devices to receive the August 2020 security patch update, even before Google’s Pixel lineup of smartphones. Samsung is likely to roll out this August 2020 Android security patch to more Galaxy devices in the coming weeks.

Samsung, in recent times, has proactively offered new updates for its new and existing models. The company has released security patches for most of its Galaxy smartphones, which is a good sign from the company. This is a big change from its previous stance when software up-gradation wasn’t a crucial part of its product plan.
