Galaxy A31 grabs January 2023 security update


Last updated: January 19th, 2023 at 15:11 UTC+01:00

Currently, the Galaxy A31 has a biannual security update status, which means that it is eligible to get two security updates every year. Well, this year’s first security update for the phone is here. Samsung has started rolling out the January 2023 security patch to the two variants of the Galaxy A31 that are sold globally: SM-A315F and SM-A315G.

The SM-A315F variant of the Galaxy A31 is getting the update with firmware version A315FXXS2DWA2 and the SM-A315G variant of the phone is getting the update with firmware version A315GZHS2DWA2. The new firmware for both variants of the device brings January 2023 security patch which fixes more than 50 security issues.

The update for the SM-A315F is currently rolling out in five regions: Caucasus Countries, India, Kazakhstan, Russia, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. Whereas, the latest firmware for the SM-A315G is rolling out in only two countries: Hong Kong and Taiwan. We expect Samsung to make the latest update available in other regions in the next few weeks.

As usual, go to Settings » Software Update and click on Download and install to check for the update manually, in case your Galaxy A31 hasn’t notified you about the latest firmware yet. If the update isn’t available in your region, but you still want to experience it, you can download the firmware file from our database and flash it manually.

The Galaxy A31 broke cover with Android 10 (One UI 2.5) onboard, and Samsung has already offered two major OS upgrades to the phone which it was supposed to get, which means that the Galaxy A31 is currently running on Android 12 (One UI 4.1) and it might not get the next version of the OS. However, it will get security updates till 2025.
