It’s been roughly three months since the Galaxy A01 has received a firmware update so it was about time for Samsung to turn its attention back to the humble budget phone and bring it up to speed with a new security patch. The company is now rolling out the February 2021 security update to the Galaxy A01 (SM-A015F), though the release is presently limited to Vietnam.

Galaxy A01 owners in Vietnam can identify the update by firmware version A015FXXUAUA3. The firmware number suggests that this might be more than just a new security patch, and that new features and / or improvements to existing ones may have been included with this new release. We weren’t able to test this but we will once the firmware update reaches additional markets, which should happen soon if the initial release in Vietnam goes as planned and is uninterrupted by unforeseen issues.

The February 2021 security update should be accompanied by a notification, though Galaxy A01 owners who haven’t received one yet should be able to trigger it by accessing the Settings app, selecting Software update and tapping Download and install. As usual, we offer our readers an alternative method of acquiring Samsung firmware from our archive.

Don’t forget that the Galaxy A01 is scheduled to receive a much bigger update to Android 11 and One UI 3.0 later this year, so stay tuned.
