Galaxy M51 gets improved security with new January 2023 update

Firmware
By 

Last updated: January 24th, 2023 at 12:57 UTC+01:00

The January 2023 security patch is now available for dozens of Galaxy smartphones, and now, we can cross the Galaxy M51 off the waiting list. Samsung is rolling out a new firmware update for the Galaxy M51 in a handful of markets, and as you’ve guessed, it brings the January 2023 security patch.

The new software for the Galaxy M51 (SM-M515F) is available in Peru, Mexico, Brazil, Bolivia, and Panama. The update has firmware version M515FXXS4DWA3. This string of letters and numbers confirms that the update doesn’t bring any new One UI features and that the release is all about improving security.

Speaking of which, the January 2023 patch addresses more than 50 “High” Android OS vulnerabilities and a handful of security issues affecting Samsung’s own software. Some issues concern features such as NFC, Secure Folder, and Samsung Knox.

Although the update is not available in too many countries as of this writing, it should expand to more regions sooner rather than later. And as usual, Galaxy M51 users can check for new updates via the Settings app on the phone by accessing “Software update” and tapping “Download and install.”

If you reside in one of the countries where the January 2023 security patch is available for the Galaxy M51, you can also download the official firmware files from our website and install the update manually using a PC.
