It’s just the first week of May, but Samsung has already updated a dozen Galaxy smartphones with the latest security patch. The update was first rolled out to the company’s flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S21, and for other devices. One week after releasing the May 2021 security patch to the Galaxy A51, the company has started rolling it out to the Galaxy A50.

Samsung released the new update to the Galaxy A50 today in South Korea. The new software, which has firmware version A505NKSU5DUD2, brings the May 2021 security patch to the smartphone. It includes fixes from Google for three critical vulnerabilities and dozens of fixes for high and moderate-risk vulnerabilities in stock Android code. 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. If you are the impatient kind and don’t want to wait for the OTA update to hit your smartphone, you can download the entire firmware image from our firmware database and flash it manually.

The Galaxy A50 was released in March 2019 with Android 9 Pie (and One UI). It received the Android 10-based One UI 2 update last year and the Android 11-based One UI 3 update two months ago. Last month, the phone had received the April 2021 security update.
