Last updated: August 20th, 2021 at 10:26 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy A50 is the latest Samsung smartphone to get the August 2021 security update. The smartphone, which was launched two years ago with Android 9 Pie-based One UI software, is currently running Android 11-based One UI 3.1 with the latest security patch. The new update is currently rolling out in various South American markets.

Samsung has released a new software update to the Galaxy A50 in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, and Uruguay. The update carries firmware version A505GUBS9CUH1 and includes the August 2021 security patch that fixes 40 user privacy and security vulnerabilities.

If you are a Galaxy A50 user in any of the markets mentioned above, you might have already received a notification of the new update. If you haven’t received the new update, you can check for it manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also download the latest firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually.

Samsung has currently listed the Galaxy A50 in its monthly security update schedule, but it could soon be downgraded to quarterly updates. The phone has already received two major Android OS updates (Android 10 and Android 11) and may not receive another major update in the future.
