Galaxy A52 5G starts getting the April 2021 security patch


Last updated: April 15th, 2021 at 09:40 UTC+02:00

Samsung started rolling out the April 2021 security patch to its smartphones late last month. However, most Galaxy smartphones, including the recently-released Galaxy A52, received the latest security patch earlier this month. The company has now started rolling out the April 2021 security patch to the Galaxy A52 5G.

The Galaxy A52 5G (SM-A526B) is now receiving the April 2021 security patch in Brazil, Chile, and Colombia. The latest software update for the smartphone has firmware version A526BXXS1AUD1. The latest security patch from Samsung includes fixes for 21 exposures and vulnerabilities spanning various potential attack vectors, encryption algorithm oversights, and unexpected behaviors from specific execution policies being misconfigured. The update also includes fixes for 30 vulnerabilities that Google termed as severe or critical.

If you are a Galaxy A52 5G user in any of the countries mentioned above, you can check for the update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. If you don’t want to wait for the update to arrive, you can download the firmware from our firmware section and flash it manually. We expect the latest update to reach the Galaxy A52 5G in more countries over the next couple of weeks.

The Galaxy A52 and the Galaxy A52 5G were unveiled last month alongside the Galaxy A72. They come with Android 11-based One UI 3.1 out of the box, and Samsung has promised to release three major Android OS updates and up to four years of security patches to the smartphones.
