Galaxy A50s update brings screen recording feature, May security patch


Last updated: June 1st, 2020 at 08:56 UTC+02:00

The built-in screen recorder is one of the best features One UI 2.0 features, but the company had decided to keep it exclusive to upper mid-range and flagship smartphones. However, it seems Samsung has changed its mind recently. The Galaxy A51’s One UI 2.1 update was released with a non-working version of the screen recording feature, and now, the Galaxy A50s is getting the feature as well through a new software update.

On the Galaxy A50s, the screen recorder does work, and we have heard that it also works on the Galaxy A51 in some of the markets where Samsung’s best-selling 2020 phone has received the One UI 2.1 update, suggesting that the feature will be making its way to more of the company’s mid-range phones in the future.

The Galaxy A50s update brings a couple of other additions, such as the ability to use the flash when capturing photos at 48MP resolution with the rear camera and, according to some users, improved fingerprint recognition. The update also includes the May 2020 security patch and is rolling out with firmware version A507FNXXU4BTD3. It is currently available in India but is likely to make its way to other markets in the coming weeks.

If you own a Galaxy A50s, you will get a notification once the update is available in your country. You can also manually download the update from the phone’s Settings » Software update menu. Alternatively, you can download the latest firmware from our firmware archive and install it on your phone using a Windows PC.
