Galaxy A50 gets new update including December 2019 security patch


Last updated: November 27th, 2019 at 16:11 UTC+02:00

Neither Google nor Samsung has detailed the December 2019 security patch, but the Galaxy A50 has beaten all the other models to the punch as it is now receiving a new update in Israel, which includes the latest security fixes. The December 2019 security patch is included in the latest Android 10 beta, but this is the first time that it reaches a Galaxy smartphone on a live build.

The new update targeting the Galaxy A50 carries version number A505FDDU3ASKA, and the letter U after ‘DD’ in the version number means the update should technically include new features along with improved security. As yet, we are unable to confirm what these new features might be, but if you have received the update on your Galaxy A50 and you’ve noticed any new additions, feel free to let us know in the comment section below. Although the rollout is limited to Israel at present, it should expand into more regions sooner rather than later.

As usual, the update is accompanied by a notification which you can tap to begin the update process, or you can launch the Settings app on your Galaxy A50, go to Software update and tap Download and install to try and trigger the update process manually. Alternatively, you can head down to our firmware page, download the firmware manually, and install it on your device using your computer.
