Samsung has been pretty impressive over the past year in terms of software updates. The company has already released the Android 11 update to almost all its recent mid-range and high-end smartphones. Now, Samsung has started rolling out the latest version of Android to the Galaxy A60.
The Galaxy A60 (SM-A6060), which was launched in China in early 2019 with Android 9, has now started receiving the Android 11 update. The new software update bumps up the firmware version of the phone to A6060ZCU3CUD3 and brings the March 2021 security patch. Since this is a major software update, we advise you to use a Wi-Fi network to download it.
We are still unsure if the Galaxy A60 is receiving the One UI 3.0 or One UI 3.1 update. In any case, the new update should bring most of the Android 11-related features, including one-time permissions, auto permissions reset, chat bubbles, conversations section in the notifications area, a media player widget in the quick settings area, and easier access to smart home controls.
The update also brings refreshed UI design, improved stock apps, a better version of the Samsung Keyboard, more Dynamic Lockscreen and AoD widget options, more lock screen widgets, video backgrounds for voice calls, improved version of Digital Wellbeing and parental controls, and more options in Bixby Routines.
If you are a Galaxy A60 user in China and haven’t received the update yet, you can manually check for it by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. Alternatively, you can also download the entire firmware from our firmware section and flash it manually. The Galaxy A60 had received the Android 10 update exactly one year ago.
