October security update rolling out for the Galaxy A50

Galaxy A50 owners who have been wondering why Samsung hasn’t yet sent out the September security update for their device are in for a surprise: The Korean giant has decided to skip ahead to the October security patch for the Galaxy A50 and is rolling out an update with the next month’s patch in some countries. The update, carrying software version A505FNXXS2ASJ1, is out in Switzerland, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, and a few countries in Southeast Europe.

For now, we don’t know if the update also brings something of note other than a security patch from the future. And, as it’s not October yet, neither Google nor Samsung has posted details of the vulnerabilities that have been fixed in the October patch, so we’re currently in the dark as to what is included in the newest Galaxy A50 update. But if you own the device and have received the update, you can tell us if you see something in the changelog about new features or improvements by leaving a comment down below.

We should note that it’s possible Samsung will not skip the September patch for the Galaxy A50 in every country or bring the October patch to everyone, as the A50 is in the quarterly schedule for security updates and is technically not expected to be updated every month. To check if the update is available for you, open the Settings app on your A50, tap Software update, then select the Download and install option. You can also choose to upgrade by downloading the firmware for the latest update from our firmware archive and flashing it manually on your phone using a Windows PC.

I received September patch yesterday and downloaded it by Smart Switch. Codename ARO S10.
It was released on Sept 26th and since I hadn’t got any time to flash it I did it yesterday..
Go and see if you have it on SmartSwitch, maybe its there, stop complaining in this page, they don’t have anything to be with Samsung.
They only give information and reviews of handsets. Pretty useful, they helped me on decide what handset buy based on my needs.

Samsung had updated A50 Firmware almost for all countries every month, except My Country (Iran), It takes 5 Month for Samsung to release a firmware for my Country. why?

My unlocked NA Note 8 received the September update today.

As for my NA unlocked S10+… the September update arrived 10 days ago, which was earlier than August.

I wish Samsung would have a public calendar detailing incoming Updates for their devices!
