Samsung has finally released the Android 13 update to the Galaxy A51 5G’s unlocked version in the US. The international version of the phone received the update in November 2022. The carrier-locked version of the phone hasn’t received the Android 13 update yet.
The Android 13-based One UI 5.0 update for the Galaxy A51 5G’s unlocked version comes with firmware version A516U1UEU8FWA4. The update is available in the US on Comcast, Verizon, and Xfinity Mobile networks. More carriers could release the update within the next few days. The new software doesn’t bring the February 2023 security patch, though, and the phone is still on the December 2022 security patch.
