Starting with the Galaxy S20 series, the One UI 4.1 update for the 2020 flagship trio is now available to Verizon customers in the US. Rolling out with firmware version G98xUSQU2FVC5, the latest iteration of Samsung’s custom Android software should reach other carrier networks over the next few days. The update comes complete with the March security patch. The Galaxy S20 FE has yet to receive this update.

One UI 4.1 reaches more Galaxy smartphones in the US
Debuted on the Galaxy S22 series last month, Samsung recently began rolling out One UI 4.1 to its older devices. And in no time, the company has already seeded the new One UI version to more than a dozen Galaxy devices. It is now rapidly bringing the new software package to the US-bound units as well.
One UI 4.1 brings a host of new features to eligible Samsung smartphones and tablets. We have Live Sharing in Google Duo, enhanced RAM Plus, enhanced Object Eraser, Grammarly-integrated Samsung Keyboard, and a bunch of camera features. Some features may not be available on all devices but most will.
If you’re using any of Samsung’s recent flagships smartphones in the US, you should receive the One UI 4.1 update soon. Watch out for a notification in the coming days. You can also manually check for updates from the Settings app, under the Software update menu.
