Only four weeks have passed since Samsung brought One UI 2.5 to the Galaxy A51 and the company has now turned its attention to one of its older smartphone models that were cut from the same cloth, namely the Galaxy A50s. Samsung has just released the One UI 2.5 update carrying firmware version A507FNXXU5CTK3 for the Galaxy A50s in Vietnam.
One UI 2.5 is Samsung’s latest One UI version, or at least it’s the latest version that’s publicly available. One UI 3.0 is in the beta stages of development but it’s part of the Android 11 firmware update so it’s going to take a while before it will be available for the Galaxy A50s. Until then, Galaxy A50s owners can enjoy One UI 2.5 and all its new features such as Bitmoji functionality for Always On Display, an improved camera experience, new Samsung Keyboard features, SOS functionalities for Messages, Google’s navigation gestures for third-party apps and more.
November 2020 security patch is included
Samsung had released One UI 2.5 for the Galaxy A51 a few weeks ago together with the October 2020 security patch, and you’d think that the company would do the same for the older model. But because the Galaxy A50s is being updated one month after its successor, the phone is also enjoying the newer November 2020 security patch along with the new One UI 2.5 features.
From what we can tell the One UI 2.5 firmware update for the Galaxy A50s is presently available only in Vietnam, but as always, the rollout should expand to additional markets soon enough. You can download the latest firmware by tapping the update notification once it arrives or by opening Settings on the phone, navigating to Software update, and tapping Download and install.
Alternatively, you can always refer to our firmware archive where you can find the latest firmware updates for a wide variety of Galaxy devices. Head over to the Galaxy A50s firmware section for the model released in Vietnam, download the package, and install it on your phone using a Windows PC.
