Samsung is updating two Galaxy A series phones with the October 2023 security patch. The Galaxy A33 and the Galaxy A32 5G are receiving new updates in different markets around the globe. The firmware versions end in CWJ1 and CWJ2 for the A33 and A32 5G updates respectively.
For the Galaxy A33, Samsung has only bundled security enhancements in the update, so nothing else will change once it is installed on your phone. For the Galaxy A32 5G, the changelog mentions device stability improvements and bug fixes, though Samsung doesn't go into detail about either of those.
Galaxy A33 update brings security fixes, A32 5G gets a little extra
You're basically getting more than just the latest security patch if you own the A32 5G, though Galaxy A33 owners can look forward to some major new features and enhancements soon as the A33 is eligible for Android 14 and One UI 6.0, unlike the A32 5G.
The Galaxy A33 and A32 5G's October update is rolling out in a handful of countries at this time, but availability should expand to more countries in the coming days. For those wondering, the LTE version of the Galaxy A32 is yet to receive the October update. That can also be expected to change in the near future.
