The Galaxy A72 is catching up with the A52, gets the August security update


Last updated: July 29th, 2021 at 20:16 UTC+02:00

Samsung began rolling out the August 2021 security patch a couple of days ago, and you can be sure that it was the first OEM to debut it. The update got released for the Galaxy A52 first, and after a surprise visit to the Galaxy A8, the August 2021 security update is now rolling out for the Galaxy A72.

The latest firmware update is now available for the Galaxy A72 in Russia, Ukraine, and possibly other neighboring markets. Users can identify the update by firmware version A725FXXU3AUG2. The firmware number hints that the update could includes additional changes and/or features along with the new security update, so keep an eye out.

Previous Galaxy A72 firmware updates were quite generous, bringing improvements to Quick Share, Gallery, Camera, call quality, face recognition, and introducing the option to view remastered pictures.

If you own the Galaxy A72 and Samsung is rolling out the new update in your region, you should be greeted by an update notification at any moment. Or you can check for new firmware updates by opening the Settings app on the phone, tapping Software update followed by Download and install. Of course, you can also download the latest update from our firmware section and install it on your phone manually.
