Weeks before the possible rollout of the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 update to the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung has released the Android 12-based One UI Core 4.1 update to the Galaxy A12. The update is currently rolling out in Russia, but we expect it to be released in other countries within the next few days.

The Android 12 update for the Galaxy A12  comes with firmware version A125FXXU2CVH1. Unfortunately, the update includes the July 2022 security patch and not the latest August 2022 patch. The update brings a lot of new features and UI design improvements.

What’s new with Galaxy A12 Android 12 (One UI 4) update?

The Galaxy A12’s big new software update brings a revamped UI design with the Color Palette feature, a new style of widgets, a new design for the widget picker, thicker brightness and volume sliders, and better Dark Mode.

The update also brings improved privacy and security. There are dedicated quick setting toggles for enabling/disabling camera and microphone access across the operating system. When apps actively use either the camera or microphone, you can quickly know about it via privacy indicators towards the top corner of the screen.

Samsung has also improved all of its stock apps in terms of design and feature set. The Gallery app brings enhanced stories, while the Photo Editor can keep track of editing history. The image editor also offers reflections editor and shadows editor tools. The camera app has a simplified design. Video recording starts as soon as the shutter button is touched (as opposed to touched and released).

The Calendar app allows you to add stickers to entries. There is a new design for the Device Care section and a new charging animation.

How to install the Android 12 update on Galaxy A12?

If you are a Galaxy A12 user in Russia, you can install the Android 12 update on your smartphone by heading to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also install the update by downloading the firmware file from our database and flashing it manually.

Other countries should also soon get access to the Android 12 update for the Galaxy A12.
