The Samsung Galaxy A50 will be getting older once the Galaxy A52 is revealed. But before that happens, the South Korean tech giant is rolling out an update for the device. The phone launched in 2019 as a major mid-range upgrade. It was the Galaxy A51’s predecessor. The Samsung Pay-enabled smartphone soon reached the United States and hit DxOMark with decent Photo and Video Scores. It was then followed by the Galaxy A50s with almost similar features and a few updates.
The Galaxy A50 is getting some Android 11 love. The OS version is ready for the phone and is about to deliver the latest One UI 3.1. This comes after the premium Galaxy phones already received this particular version.
The new Android 11 also brings the latest March 2021 security patch. This is important to know because not all Android 11 release carries this version of the security patch. Specifically, this build delivers A505FDDU7CUBC. Expect improved performance and a refreshed UI design.
