Samsung Galaxy A12 Nacho gets Android 12 update

Galaxy A12 Nacho

Back last year, Samsung unveiled a surprising device dubbed Samsung Galaxy A12 Nacho. The device was an intriguing variant of the Galaxy A12 featuring a different chipset. As usual, the Galaxy A12 Nacho belongs to the low-end range of Samsung smartphones. Despite this, the company is showing its commitment by providing Android 12 updates with One UI 4.1. The device arrived with Android 11 and the One UI 3.1 version, so it was eligible for at least one major Android update. Anyway, it’s a better treatment than most Android OEMs are giving to customers in the low-end segment.

The update for the Samsung Galaxy A12 Nacho brings firmware version A127FXXU5BVE4. It introduces the new refreshments for the user interface as well as the One UI 4.1 goodies. We’re not expecting this device to get all the advanced features present on more expensive smartphones running this skin version. However, the standard set of Android 12 features will likely be available. There is a new theming engine with some Samsung tweaks following Google and its Monet interface. Worth noting, that the update also bumps the Android security patch level on the smartphone to May 2022.
