Latest Galaxy A50 update brings March 2019 security patch


Last updated: March 13th, 2019 at 13:45 UTC+02:00

It has merely been a couple of weeks since the Galaxy A50 was unveiled and it’s now receiving a new update from Samsung. The latest Galaxy A50 update brings the security patch for the month of March 2019.

India was the first market where Samsung made the Galaxy A50 available for purchase. Customers in the country have been able to pick up the handset both online and through retail stores since March 2. Little surprise, then, that this update was first rolled out in India as well.

Latest Galaxy A50 update is rolling out now

As we noted in our Galaxy A50 hands-on, it’s a compelling new mid-ranger from Samsung that’s packed full of technology. It gets a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch that Samsung calls Infinity-U. There’s even a triple-camera system at the back. It has a 25-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultrawide and a 5-megapixel depth sensor.

The Galaxy A50 also happens to be Samsung’s first relatively affordable device with an in-display fingerprint sensor. It’s not the more expensive and secure ultrasonic sensor of the Galaxy S10. The Galaxy A50 gets an optical sensor instead so while it may feel slower if you downgrade from the Galaxy S10, it is still pretty good at getting the job done.

Samsung is now rolling out firmware version A505FDDU1ASC1 for the Galaxy A50 in India and Sri Lanka. The updates will roll out over-the-air in stages but you can get the firmware files right away from our database. The March 2019 security patch includes fixes for dozens of vulnerabilities in the Android OS in addition to fixes for 11 vulnerabilities in Samsung’s own software.
