    Galaxy A72’s latest update brings October security patch and more

    Firmware
    By 

    Last updated: October 27th, 2023 at 13:52 UTC+02:00

    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.

    The Galaxy A72's next (and final) big update will be Android 14 and One UI 6.0, but till that gets released, owners of the device will have to make do with minor updates, like the one that is rolling out now in some countries, including South American countries such as Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, and Paraguay.

    Galaxy A72 October update brings security and bug fixes

    The firmware version for the latest Galaxy A72 update ends in DWJ1. The update is packaged with the October 2023 security patch, which has fixes for two critical Android OS vulnerabilities and 13 vulnerabilities affecting Samsung's software. Also included in the update are bug fixes and stability improvements for which Samsung doesn't provide any specifics.

    You can check if your country has received the new A72 update through our firmware archive, where you can also download firmware files for manually upgrading the phone using a Windows PC. The recommended method, however, is to grab the update over the air from the phone's Settings » Software update menu.
