The software update had already been seeded to the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, and will be rolled out to the Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G, Note20 5G and the upcoming Z Fold2 5G starting September 18th.

This will ensure that the Galaxy flagship phones will be among the first official “5G-ready” smartphones to harness the next generation’s hyper-fast and low latency 5G network.

Those who did receive the OTA update notification on the stipulated date can manually update their device by going to Settings > Software update > Download and install.

Once the update is completed, you can check whether the device is 5G-enabled by going to Settings > Connections > Mobile networks. You will see 5G listed within the Network mode if the update is successful.

Coupled with the company’s flagship Exynos 990 chipset, the new generation’s network will certainly make these Galaxy devices faster than ever.
