The Galaxy A52 5G is joining a quickly growing list of devices for which Samsung has released the One UI 5.1 update. The Galaxy A52 5G One UI 5.1 update is now being rolled out, bringing features from the Galaxy S23 flagship lineup to one of Samsung’s best mid-range phones.
At the moment, only the 5G variant of the Galaxy A52 seems to be getting One UI 5.1. The update isn’t out yet for the regular Galaxy A52 or the Galaxy A52s 5G, although we can expect the situtation to change real soon considering how Samsung has its foot on the gas and is working quickly at releasing One UI 5.1 to all eligible devices.
According to one of our readers (thanks, Kevin!), who sent in screenshots from their Galaxy A52 5G, the One UI 5.1 update comes with firmware version A526BXXU2EWB1, is around a gigabyte in download size, and includes this month’s security patch. The firmware version might vary based on market, and availability of the update will also depend on how quickly the local Samsung arm’s software team is able to push it out.
Galaxy A52 series still has one major OS update left to go
The Galaxy A52 series, including the Galaxy A52 5G, is eligible for three years of OS upgrades, which means One UI 5.1 is not the last substantial update for any of them. That said, all A52 variants/models will have to wait many more months before they get another feature-rich update – Android 14 (and One UI 6.0, if Samsung continues with the version numbering scheme), which will be the last Android OS upgrade for them.
Alright, back to the Galaxy A52 5G’s One UI 5.1 update. The rollout seems to be limited for now, though we know the update has at least been released in Singapore. You can check if your phone has gotten the update through our firmware version, or you can try downloading it over the air from the phone’s Settings » Software update menu.
If the update is not available in your market right now, be sure to keep checking from time to time. Also check out our video below of all the One UI 5.1 features you can expect, though some of these might not be available on the A52 as the video was made on a flagship Galaxy smartphone and mid-range phones tend to miss out on some of the high-end features.
