Arguably the best mid-range Android phone of 2021, the Galaxy A52s, is getting updated to Android 12. This isn't news, per se, as the update's been available for customers in Korea for a couple of weeks now, but today, Samsung is rolling out Android 12 for the Galaxy A52s in more markets, including India and nearly a dozen European countries.
More and more Galaxy A52s customers in India are being greeted with the update notification for the Android 12-based One UI 4.0 update, and downloading it over a data plan isn't going to be a picnic for everyone. The latest Galaxy A52s update weighs over 2.2GB and includes the January 2022 security patch, so you're probably better off acquiring it while your phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network. The update carries firmware version A528BXXU1BUL7.
Android 12 is also live for the Galaxy A52s in Europe
One UI 4.0 is rolling out for the Galaxy A52s in India as well as a handful of European countries. The list includes Germany, Spain, Italy, Romania, Switzerland, Poland, Luxembourg, and France. More regions should be added shortly.
For Galaxy A52s customers, the phone needs no introduction. For others, the Galaxy A52s was released late last year to refresh the already-successful Galaxy A52. It rolled out the factory gates running Android 11 and One UI 3.1, so the update represents the phone's first big jump to a new version of Android OS and One UI.
One UI 4 adds new personalization options while refreshing the UI with better object spacing, and it redesigns several features, such as the Edge panel, widgets, and 1st-party Samsung apps.
You should be able to download the update on the Galaxy A52s where available by opening the Settings app and accessing the Software update menu. You can also keep an eye on the firmware section on our website, where you can download the latest Samsung updates for manual installation.
