T-Mobile Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra updates now rolling out


T-Mobile Galaxy S20 series owners, there’s a new update now headed your way.

T-Mo’s Galaxy S20 is now receiving an update to version G981USQU1ATCM while the Galaxy S20+ is being updated to version G986USQU1ATCM and the Galaxy S20 Ultra is being bumped up to version G988USQU1ATCM. The S20 update is 502.16MB, the S20+’s is 439.93MB, and the S20 Ultra’s is 433.76MB.

These updates are based on the March 1, 2020 security patch level and, according to T-Mo, include “general bug fixes and system improvements”. Some Galaxy S20 models were recently updated with camera improvements that fix the autofocus issues that some people were having, but there’s no mention of any camera enhancements in the changelogs for these updates from T-Mobile so it’s unclear if they’re in there.


Several TmoNews readers received their updates overnight, so if you’ve got a T-Mobile Galaxy S20, S20+, or S20 Ultra, you should see your update arrive soon. You can also check manually by going into Settings > Software Update > Download and install.

Let us know when you’ve installed the update and if you see any autofocus improvements in the camera or any other changes!

Thanks Moshe, Michael, Daryl, Garreth, Joseph, Derek, Mr P, and Jonathan!

    To bad they not ROLLING OUT PRICE DROPS lol, these are way over priced.

      Got my Ultra for $700 with free buds+ couldn’t be happier with the price of admission.

      • Daniel Holmstock

        cool, but does not help us JOD folks. : )

        700, no trade in?
        If there was a trade in the final price is not 700.
        Your previous phone was of monetary value, and could be considered cash payment.
        Unless someone gave you your last phone for free, you technically paid more than 700 dollars. Trade in value may have been higher than current resale value.
        But, there would be more than 700 paid.

          I’ve been trading in phones for a while now so I’ve never paid full price for these phones. The previous phone I had was copped way under retail so the previous Monterey value meansnnothing to me. And this Ultra will get traded in for the Note 20 Ultra or whatever they call it. Rinse and repeat. I do the same with my iPhones and one plus. Haven’t paid full price for these phones in a while. Gotta work that trade in system. You’ll take the hit on the initial phone but it’s worth after that.

      Since people are hooked on Samsung, and won’t give LG, or OnePlus a try, Samsung is milking the consumer for all they can get, and people are foolish enough to pay $1,000-$1,400+ for a smartphone.

      If you think it’s over prices it’s just not for you.

      • Daniel Holmstock

        Lol for that reason why! Lol

  • Autofocus is fixed with this update!

  • Nate

    I got my update last night… I wish I knew what it does for me though.

    • Tommy Bayshore

      Lol true.

  • Matt Ferguson

    Anyone receive the update for USB-C headphones also?

    • TenEightyPeePee

      Is there something up? I know the USB-C to 3.5 MM dongle from my OnePlus 6T didn’t work with my S20 Ultra… Got an incompatible message

  • EffortLess

    GPS finally fixed!

  • blacksheep242

    Auto-Focus still crappy.

    • The Great Brian First

      The zoom is awesome quality though on the S20+.

    Did anyone who pre-ordered get their virtual pre-paid card for $500 yet?

    • Kira Yamato

      I received mine just today but it was late because phone trade in couldn’t be located. Contacted Tforce they handled amazingly. If you haven’t received it contact them on Twitter.
