Hey, Galaxy A11 owners, some extra peace of mind is on your way


Last updated: July 22nd, 2021 at 18:57 UTC+02:00

Here’s some good news for the Galaxy A11 owners out there: a new security update is on your way as of today. This is the very latest release from Samsung, dated July 1st, 2021. The same one that’s been on the rollout for just over half a month by now.

The over-the-air release seems to be contained to the Far East for the time being, but seeing how the July update has already gone global for a couple dozen other Galaxy devices, it’s likely only a matter of days before the same is true for this particular one. The package to be on the lookout for is labeled by PDA version A115FXXU2BUF2.

Are you seeing the update on your end already?

Released in May of last year, the Galaxy A11 has so far been enjoying rather stellar support on Samsung’s part. Especially for a budget device, but even in a wider context, compared to most mid-range offerings from competing brands. In fact, it was just last month that Samsung deployed One UI 3.1 to the device. The very same that started

As per usual, you don’t have to simply wait for the July 2021 security update to reach your Galaxy A11 on its own. If you want to get proactive about it, you can try triggering a manual installation by going to Settings, scrolling down to the Software update section, and tapping Download and install on the final screen.

Or, alternatively, our firmware archives have full system images containing the new update that you can download. Assuming you know how to manually flash the said firmware to your device, that is.
