Google takes the edge on Samsung with the May 2023 security update for its Pixel Watch on Wear OS. Leaving Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5 series behind.

It is now well known that Samsung beats other Android brands. And even Google in terms of firmware support for smartphones. But when it comes to Wear OS smartwatches, it seems Google still has the edge over the Korean giant. Indeed, the Galaxy Watch 5 series lags behind the Google Pixel Watch.

Google has just released the May 2023 security patch for its Wear OS smartwatch. Namely the Pixel Watch, with software version RWDA.230114.013. Samsung usually beats Google with earlier security patch updates for smartphones. The roles are now reversed. The Galaxy Watch 5 series recently received the April security patch, but lacks the May update.

Wear OS: Will the Galaxy Watch 5 get the May security update?

Unlike high-end smartphones, Wear OS smartwatches don’t get monthly security patches. At least that’s not guaranteed. The schedule is unpredictable. The Galaxy Watch 5, for example, went live with the July security patch. It received security updates in November 2022, January 2023, February and April.

However, Samsung seems to be mimicking Google’s release schedule. Indeed, the Pixel Watch also received security patches in January, February and April. So it makes sense to assume that the Galaxy Watch 5 series, and possibly the Watch 4, will receive the May 2023 security patch. It’s not a guarantee, and again, Samsung seems to lag behind Google in this area. But surely not for long.

Samsung edged out Google with May 2023 update for smartphones Android, starting with the Galaxy A10e last week. And today, Samsung brought the May update to the opposite end of the spectrum with an update to the Galaxy S23 which is rolling out in Europe. For phones, patch fixes over 70 security vulnerabilitiessix of which were marked as critical.
