The Galaxy A72 is getting a new software update in some markets this week, following other Galaxy A series phones like the Galaxy A33 and Galaxy A32 5G. The Galaxy A72 launched in early 2021 and has received two Android version updates since then. Earlier this year, it was updated with One UI 5.1, which added a few new features that were introduced with the Galaxy S23 lineup.
