When it comes to updates, December is expected to be pretty chill for Samsung devices. Most of Samsung’s best phones and foldables all received a huge update to Android 14 and One UI 6 in November, so for this month, a security patch should be all that arrives.

We are midway through December and Samsung is rolling out the December security patch. In several changelogs, all that’s supposedly being included here is improvements to security. Again, that’s not unexpected after One UI 6 update from last month, where we saw a huge list of improvements and new features.
