The new Galaxy A71 5G software update comes with firmware version A716BXXS9FXA1 and is now available in Saudi Arabia and UAE. It could expand to other countries and markets within the next few days. The new update has a relatively small download size since it only contains security patches. So, don’t expect to see any new features or performance improvements with the update. According to Samsung’s security bulletin, the February 2024 security update fixes 72 security vulnerabilities found in the previous software version.

If you have a Galaxy A71 5G and if you live in any of the countries mentioned above, you can now check for the new update on your device. To check for the update, navigate to Settings » Software update » Download and install on your phone.

For that to happen, you need access to a computer running Windows OS and having the Odin tool installed.

Samsung launched the Galaxy A71 5G in early 2021 with Android 11 onboard. The phone received the Android 12 update in late 2021 and the Android 13 update in late 2022. The Galaxy A71 5G didn’t get the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update.
