Update: Samsung has also released the stable Android 13 update to the Galaxy A73 5G in India.
Earlier this week, Samsung released the stable Android 13 update to the Galaxy A33 5G and the Galaxy A53 5G. Today, the company has also started releasing the stable Android 13 update to the Galaxy A73 5G.
The stable Android 13 update for the Galaxy A73 5G comes with firmware version A736BXXU2BVK2. The update doesn’t bring the November 2022 security update, though. The new update is rolling out in Malaysia, and we expect it to be released in other countries within the next few days.
If you are a Galaxy A73 5G user in Malaysia, you can install the stable Android 13 (One UI 5.0) update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping Download and install. Alternatively, you can also download the new firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually.
