Galaxy A52 5G starts getting the April 2021 security patch

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.
