The new software also includes fixes for 23 Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures items, which are vulnerabilities found in the South Korean firm’s own software.

The update is available for unlocked, LG Uplus, KT, and SK Telecom versions of the phone in South Korea. If you are a Galaxy A50 user in South Korea, you can check for the update by navigating to Settings » Software update and then clicking Download and install.
