Samsung is bringing a handful of additional features to the Galaxy A50s with a new firmware update. The device was updated to One UI 2.5 last November but the experience is only getting better, especially for mobile photographers. Included with the latest firmware update are features such as Single Take and Night Hyperlapse, and Galaxy A50s owners will also have access to My Filters for the first time.
As many of you are aware, Single Take, Night Hyperlapse, and My Filters were all introduced with the the Galaxy S20 flagship series. They were later ported over to other devices including older Galaxy flagships, and now they’re available for the mid-range Galaxy A50s, which is a pretty big deal. It means that the Galaxy A50s is getting new flagship features the older it gets.
January 2021 security patch is included
The new software release comes with the January 2021 security patch included. It was detailed by Samsung a couple of months ago and it already got released for a handful of other Galaxy devices, including the standard Galaxy A50.
The latest update carries firmware version A507FNXXU5CUB3 and weighs a little over 219MB. At present, Samsung is rolling out the update in India but other markets should follow suit. Galaxy A50s owners should be able to download the firmware by opening the Settings app on the phone, accessing Software update, and tapping Download and install.
Alternatively, they can visit our firmware archive where they can search for the device and download the latest update to install it manually using a PC.
