Android 12 and One UI Core 4.1 is rolling out for the Samsung Galaxy A03


Last updated: August 18th, 2022 at 13:46 UTC+02:00

Another low-cost Samsung smartphone is making the leap from Android 11 to Android 12. This time, it’s the Galaxy A03 carrying model number SM-A035F.

The new OS update is accompanied by One UI Core 4.1 and the July 2022 security patch. Customers in Europe can identify the new Android 12 update for the Galaxy A03 by firmware version A035FXXU1BFH4.

As of this writing, the update is rolling out in Russia and Ukraine, oddly enough. Samsung might be using this limited release to test the firmware before expanding into more European markets.

Android 12 and One UI Core 4.1 for the Galaxy A03

Because the Galaxy A03 is one of Samsung’s cheapest Android smartphones, it ships with a more simplistic “Core” version of One UI 4.1. Nevertheless, the update improves privacy with permission info at a glance, new camera and microphone indicators on the status bar, clipboard protection, and private approximate location.

With Android 12 and One UI Core 4.1, Samsung Keyboard also got new animated emoji pairs, new stickers, and an additional spell checker powered by Grammarly. Many other first-party Samsung apps have been improved with this new update, including the Gallery, Calendar, Samsung Internet, Device Care, and more.

The Calendar has new options for quick events and sharing events with others, and Samsung Internet offers more search suggestions. And now, the browser also automatically starts in Secret Mode whenever the previous session ends in this mode.

Furthermore, Galaxy A03 customers running Android 12 will be able to personalize their devices with Material You color palettes.

You can refer to the full changelog below for more details, and as usual, Galaxy A03 customers can download the latest Android 12 update once they receive the notification or by opening the Settings app, accessing “Software update,” and tapping “Download and install.”

Alternatively, SamMobile readers can download the latest official firmware files from our website and install the update manually using a Windows PC. And, in case you’re wondering, Samsung also updated the Galaxy A03s variant to Android 12 and One UI Core 4.1 last month.
