Last updated: August 23rd, 2021 at 08:57 UTC+02:00

Samsung has started rolling out the August 2021 security update to the Galaxy A31. The company had started releasing the latest security patch in the last week of July, and the Galaxy A52 was the first phone to get the update. Since then, the South Korean firm has updated a bunch of Galaxy devices with this security patch.

The Galaxy A31 started getting the new software update in Brazil and Colombia on Saturday. The new update bears firmware version A315GDXU1CUG5 and includes the August 2021 security patch. A couple of weeks ago, Samsung had revealed that its newest security patch fixes 40 vulnerabilities present in Samsung’s smartphones and tablets. This update could be released in more markets over the next few days.

If you own a Galaxy A31 and reside in any of the countries mentioned above, you might have received the update already. If you haven’t, you can check for the update manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install on your smartphone. You can also download the latest firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually.

Samsung had launched the Galaxy A31 in April 2020 with Android 10-based One UI 2.5. The mid-range smartphone received the Android 11-based One UI 3.1 update four months ago.
