Change CSC on Samsung Devices | Guide

by | 27 Jun 2020

Samsung is probably the largest Android OEM in the world, at the moment. From midrange devices to flagship devices, from phones to tablets, the number of devices and variants that Samsung releases every single year is astounding. Most of the Android OEMs release as a single version of the software update to their devices all over the world. For example, OnePlus releases the same update to all OnePlus 7s around the world. That is not the case with Samsung.

Samsung releases a different version of stock firmware for different regions – all for the same device. And why exactly do they do this? We have no idea but we do know how do they do it. They differentiate these devices by the CSC (Country Specific Code) on the Samsung devices. Each of the Samsung devices come with a CSC on them so that Samsung can later identify them based on the CSC and send across the appropriate update to the devices.

If you wish to learn more about CSC and the list of all CSC codes available for Samsung devices, then I recommend reading the below article:
