Samsung has released the November 2021 security update to dozens of smartphones in high-end and mid-range segments. Now, the company seems to be expanding the reach of its latest security patch to lower-end devices like the Galaxy A12, at least in a few markets.
The latest update for the Galaxy A12 comes with firmware version A125FXXU1BUK1. The update is currently rolling out in Russia, and it could reach more countries over the next few days. We don’t have the changelog for this update yet, but we know for sure that it includes the November 2021 security patch that fixes dozens of vulnerabilities. It might also include general bug fixes and device stability improvements.
If you are a Galaxy A12 user in Russia, you can check for the new update by navigating to Settings » Software update and clicking on Download and install. You can also download the latest firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually if you have a computer running the Windows operating system.
Samsung had launched the Galaxy A12 late last year with Android 10 on board. The smartphone received the Android 11 update in May 2021, and it will get at least one more Android OS update (Android 12 with One UI 4) in the first half of next year.
