Samsung has made it a habit to update its flagship smartphones to the latest security patch before other Android devices and often before we go into the corresponding month. May is no different as the company has already started rolling out the May update for its Galaxy S22 series.

There does not appear to be anything particularly interesting with the update other than a bump to the latest Android security patch. So far, there are no details on what is included in the patch, though thankfully the annoying “Dirty Pipe” vulnerability was already fixed with the April update.
