    Samsung has started releasing the Android 11 update to its low-end Galaxy A series smartphone. Earlier today, the Galaxy A12 started getting the Android 11 update with the latest security patch. Now, the Galaxy A02s has started getting the update as well, but it includes one month older security patch.

    The Galaxy A02s has started getting the Android 11 update in Russia. The new software update, which bears firmware version A025FXXU2BUDC, also comes embedded with the April 2021 security patch. We don't have an official changelog for this update, but it should include Android 11 features like chat bubbles, one-time permissions, auto permissions reset, a dedicated conversations section in the notifications area, a dynamic media player widget below quick setting toggles, and easier access to smart home controls.

    It should also include One UI 3.1 features like a refreshed UI design, more Dynamic Lockscreen options, more lockscreen widgets, better version of stock Samsung apps like Samsung Internet and Samsung Keyboard. It should also include a better design for the Device Care menu and improved Digital Wellbeing and parental controls. The new update should also bring improved security and privacy to the Galaxy A02s.

    If you are a Galaxy A02s user in Russia, you can check for the update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also download the entire firmware from our firmware database and flash it manually. We also expect this update to be released in more countries over the next few days. The Galaxy A02s was launched six months ago with Android 10 on board.
