Samsung kicked off this month's security patch rollout last week with the budget Galaxy A50. Within days of that release, some of its recent S Pen-clad flagships are also being bumped to the latest Android security level. Alongside their international variants, the US Note20 and Note10 series have started getting the October update, starting with the unlocked models.

An OTA update is already reaching the Galaxy Note20 Ultra, Note20, Note10+, and the Note10 in the US. Only their unlocked models are currently receiving the build, but given Samsung's performance in the last couple of months, you can expect the carrier variants and other Galaxy phones to follow suit pretty soon. With the limited information available right now, we can't really say what else these updates are bringing to the table, apart from the new patches.

The following are all Samsung phones in the US that have been patched up to the October 2020 level, with the latest additions to the list highlighted in bold.
