Samsung continues the June 2020 security patch rollout and the company’s newer Galaxy A (2019/2020) devices are not the only mid-range lineups to get it. The company is now expanding the update rollout to include a couple of Galaxy A models from 2018, namely the Galaxy A7 (SM-A750FN) and Galaxy A8 (SM-A530F).

The Galaxy A7 (2018) firmware is rolling out as version A750FNXXU4CTE3 in a handful of European countries including Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, and Poland. Meanwhile, the Galaxy A8 (2018) is being updated to firmware version A530FXXUCCTF2 in Kazakhstan, Russia, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. As always, the updates are being rolled out in phases so they will eventually land on both Galaxy A (2018) models in more countries over the next few days and weeks.

The Galaxy A7 (2018) is the newer model from the two but both have been relegated to monthly security patches after Samsung gave them two major Android OS updates. Since the Galaxy A8 (2018) an the older device that launched with Android 7 Nougat out of the box, it has remained limited to Android 9. Meanwhile the Galaxy A7 (2018) benefits from Android 10 and One UI 2.0, but it won’t be getting Android 11.

Go to our firmware archive for the Galaxy A7 (SM-A750FN) and/or Galaxy A8 (SM-A530F) to download the update for your device and install it using a Windows PC. If you reside in one of the countries in which the update is rolling out now , you should be getting an update notification at any moment. You can also open Settings on the phone, go to Software update and tap Download and install to try to trigger the update manually.
