The Galaxy A52 is already getting the latest security update


Last updated: March 30th, 2021 at 18:33 UTC+02:00

Not a lot of time has passed since the Galaxy A52 was officially introduced to the world as a killer mid-range device with flagship characteristics, and it didn’t take long for Samsung to improve the phone’s security with a fresh firmware update. The April 2021 security patch is now rolling out to the 4G variant of the Galaxy A52 (SM-A525F) in a handful of countries across the European continent.

Galaxy A52 owners can identify the update by firmware version A525FXXU1AUC5. The firmware is now being rolled out in Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Portugal, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia. The April 2021 security patch was recently released for the Galaxy S21, the Galaxy Note 10, the Galaxy Z Fold 2, and even the Galaxy A52’s predecessor — the Galaxy A51 — along with the One UI 3.1 update. Samsung has yet to detail the latest security patch so nobody really knows what vulnerabilities it’s supposed to be fixing, but improved security is always welcomed.

For the time being, the new firmware update appears to be available only for the 4G-enabled Galaxy A52, but we’re guessing that the 5G variant will get the same treatment soon. Galaxy A52 owners in Europe can attempt to download the latest update from the Settings app by accessing the Software update section and tapping Download and install.

As usual, SamMobile readers can also acquire new firmware from our servers for free. If you want to skip the wait, head down to our firmware archive, look for the firmware that matches your phone, and download it on a PC to install it manually using Odin.
