Galaxy A6+ gets AR Emoji in the latest update

Samsung launched the Galaxy A6+ in May this year as a lower-midrange offering. Galaxy smartphones in this range typically don’t receive regular updates. Even when they do get an update, it is usually a bump in the security patch rather than new features. The latest Galaxy A6+ update, however, seems to be an exception as it brings more than just the November security patch.

The A605GDXU3ARK2 (may vary slightly by region) firmware, which started rolling out towards the end of November, brings the AR Emoji feature to the Galaxy A6+. First launched on the Galaxy S9/S9+, the AR Emoji feature has been added to many midrange and budget devices since then, and now it’s the turn of the Galaxy A6+.

You can find the latest firmware in our database

If your Galaxy A6+ received the above-mentioned update, then you will find the AR Emoji option in the camera app. If you haven’t received the OTA update yet, you can either try to manually trigger the update or download the latest firmware from our database. Since Samsung rolls out updates in stages, it is possible not all the regions and variants have received the update yet.

Those who haven’t heard about the AR Emoji feature before can read our post about what it is and how to use it. As we mentioned in the past, it doesn’t work well on budget and midrange phones, but it is still encouraging to see Samsung bringing software features from its flagship devices to less-expensive models.

Well we are not official Samsung… But your right we could have answered you. Let me take the time to answer you.
We do not know when and if your device will get the update…
It al depends when Samsung push the update to your phone.
And while I’m at it I got a question for you: Why do you want that update so much. Did your phone stopped working?

Cheers Martin

No it dosent stopped working. But devices like A6+ are getting updated and started supporting AR emoji features, A7 getting updated supporting super slow motion videos, and devices like A5 also getting nov security patch update.
So, if i paid almost 30k for my devices.. and its upper segment device.

Am i wrong if i asking updates and some new features..

The company has put the name as Galaxy A8 star.
But i didnt think compnay really meant the word “STAR”.

And thanks for the reply..
