Samsung unveiled the S20 family of flagships at its Unpacked event back in February. The devices come with impressive specs such as a 120Hz display, superior camera tech, and more. While the devices have begun making it to customers’ hands, Samsung has today made the kernel source code for the devices available for developers.
Kernel source code are of no specific use to regular consumers. These are leveraged by developers to create new apps or optimize their existing apps to leverage capability brought by the S20 series of devices. The source code can be found at the Samsung Open Source Release Center website here. There are six different models listed for the three devices, with each model having two links – each for the Snapdragon (with the ‘U’ suffix) and Exynos (with the ‘B’ suffix) variants. The model numbers correspond to the 5G variants of the devices.
For those not in the know, the Galaxy S20 line of devices is powered by the Exynos 990 chip in most markets in Asia and Europe, whereas the U.S., Hong Kong, South Korea, and some other markets get the Snapdragon 865 powered devices. The Kernel source code also can be used by developers to create custom recover images or custom stable ROMs.
