While Samsung promised four Android OS updates and up to five years of security updates to both the Galaxy A53 5G and the Galaxy A73 5G, only the former gets monthly security updates. The Galaxy A73 5G, despite being the pricier of the two, gets just one security update in a quarter.
Now, the Galaxy A73 5G has started getting the October 2022 security update. The latest update for the smartphone comes with firmware version A736BXXS2AVJ3, which is available in Latin American markets. According to Samsung’s documentation, the October 2022 security patch fixes dozens of security vulnerabilities. It might also bring general bug fixes and stability improvements.
If you are a Galaxy A73 5G user in any Latin American country, you can now download the new security update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping Download and install. You can also download the new firmware file from our database and flash it manually.
The Galaxy A73 5G is scheduled to get the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 update some time next month. However, since Samsung released the Android 13 update to the Galaxy A53 5G ahead of its schedule, it could do the same with the Galaxy A73 5G.
