The latest updates for Samsung devices have started for the month of September. Since the the list of still-supported devices from Samsung is quite lengthy, we’ll keep track of the entire list of devices receiving this latest build as the month moves along.

The first round of September updates is for the Galaxy S23 series, so that includes the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra. Since last month’s August Samsung update was a big one for this series with the jump to One UI 5.1.1, this new software is listed as being just a security patch.

Verizon, who is first to post a changelog, says that this update “provides the most up to date Android security patches on your device.” We’ll update this after Samsung shares more info, which they have yet to do.

Here are some new September Samsung builds:

  • Galaxy S23 Ultra: S918USQS1AWHD
  • Galaxy S23+: S916USQS1AWHD
  • Galaxy S23: S911USQS1AWHD

What else is there to know about this new update? Not much, unfortunately. The thing is, Samsung is working on One UI 6 based on Android 14 and the Galaxy S23 is already beta testing it. That’s the next huge update we are expecting. Don’t be surprised if all of last month’s devices get this same, small security patch before that big One UI update arrives.

UPDATE 9 13: The Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Flip 4, and Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Fold 4 are up next for the September update and the following builds that include only new security patches —

  • Galaxy Note 20: N981USQS5HWHC
  • Galaxy Note 20 Ultra: N986USQS5HWHC
  • Galaxy Z Flip 3: F711USQS5GWH9
  • Galaxy Z Flip 4: F721USQS3DWH9
  • Galaxy Z Fold 3: F926USQG4GWH9
  • Galaxy Z Fold 4: F936USQS3DWH9

UPDATE 9/15: The Galaxy S22 series is up next for the September patch, again with just the security updates, no new features.
