The Samsung Galaxy A52 And Galaxy A72 have occupied the headlines in almost every week of 2021 so far. After a multitude of leaks and rumors, the device finally was released earlier this month. With them, Samsung wants to repeat the success of the last year’s models, especially the Galaxy A51 which was the best-selling Galaxy A phone ever. The Galaxy A52 was recently introduced as a powerful smartphone under the mid-range category.
The Galaxy A52 is receiving April 2021 security patch
Nowadays, Samsung is showing another face in terms of software support. The company already has many of its older Galaxy smartphones running Android 11 and more will receive. The company is also rolling out constantly security patches to keep certain devices updated and secure. Now, the Galaxy A52 is receiving a new firmware update to iron out certain issues and bring April 2021 security patch. That’s right, once again, Samsung is rolling out a new monthly security patch before the end of the old month. Meanwhile, Motorola rolled out Android 11 for the Moto G 5G Plus recently with February 2021 security patch, but that is another story.
The new update with April 2021 security patch is now rolling out for the 4G variant of the Galaxy A52. This version carries the SM-A525F model number and is available across several markets in the European continent. The Samsung Galaxy A52 owners can identify the update by firmware version A525FXXU1AUC5. The update patch is reaching the following countries:
- Czech Republic
A bunch of Galaxy smartphones already running with the April 2021 security patch
So far, the new security patch has already reached the Galaxy S21, Note 10, Z Fold 2, and even the Galaxy A51 alongside the One UI 3.1 update. Samsung is yet to detail the latest security patch. For that reason, we’re not aware of what vulnerabilities are being addressed in this update. However, since it is meant to improve security we can’t help but say welcome to this update.
For now, the update seems to be reaching only the 4G variant of the Galaxy A52. However, we expect the 5G variant to get the same treatment pretty soon. Coming back, those who own a 4G unit, need to take in mind that this update is rolling out gradually. So it can take a few days to reach all eligible units. However, you can try your luck from the Settings app by accessing the Software update section and tapping Download and Install.
