After releasing the May 2023 security update to the Galaxy A23, Galaxy A33, Galaxy A52, Galaxy A52 5G, and Galaxy M53, Samsung has released its latest security update to the Galaxy A73. This was Samsung's highest-end Galaxy A series smartphone in 2022, and the company hasn't launched its successor this year.
The latest software update for the Galaxy A73 bumps up the phone's firmware version to A736BXXS3CWE1. The update is available in Brazil and could expand to more countries worldwide within the next few days. It has a download size of around 227.29MB, which most probably means that it doesn't bring any new features and is limited to security bug fixes.
