Galaxy A70 May update adds support for 360 Audio over Galaxy Buds Pro


Last updated: May 21st, 2021 at 09:42 UTC+02:00

Samsung has released the latest security update for yet another mid-range device. The Galaxy A70 is beginning to receive the May security update in some markets today. The rollout has kicked off in Ukraine and is bound to expand to other markets in the coming weeks. The new firmware version accompanying the update is A705FNXXU5DEU2.

Galaxy Buds Pro owners can now use 360 Audio feature

In addition to all the security fixes included in the May 2021 patch, the Galaxy A70 update improves file sharing over Quick Share, just like the updates for various other Galaxy devices that run One UI 3.1. The update also adds a new feature that should have been part of the original One UI 3.1 release for the Galaxy A70: 360 Audio. This is a surround sound feature that works on the Galaxy Buds Pro and replicates multi-dimensional sound with Dolby Head Tracking to provide “theater-like” sound.

Galaxy A70 owners should be able to download the latest update over the air from their phone’s Settings » Software update menu, though it may be a few days before that works for everyone due to the phased nature of these rollouts. As an alternative, you can download the latest firmware from our archive and install it on your device using a Windows PC. We recommend backing up all data if you take this route and making sure you download the right firmware for your country.
