[Update: US unlocked] Galaxy A50 gets February 2020 security patch in new update


Last updated: February 4th, 2020 at 11:33 UTC+01:00

Samsung has now released an update with the February 2020 security patch for the Galaxy A50. This is the fourth Galaxy device to be getting the February patch. Samsung first released the February update for the Galaxy Tab S3 last month, followed by the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Note 10 just three days ago.

As is always the case when Samsung pushes out new security patches ahead of time, we have no idea what the February 2020 security patch is about, but Samsung and Google will probably release details by the end of this week. The Galaxy A50 update is rolling out in nearly 15 European markets, including Germany, France, the Netherlands, the UK, Italy, Greece, and Switzerland, and comes with software version A505FNXXS4ATB1.

The letter ‘S’ in the software version before the last five characters indicates the update does not bring any new features or enhancements except for the February security patch, which is also supported by the update changelog. Android 10 is still a couple of months away for the Galaxy A50 – Samsung is aiming to release the Android 10 update for the device sometime in April, along with a slew of other mid-range smartphones.

If you own a Galaxy A50, you can download the new update over the air from the phone’s Settings » Software update menu. You can also download the latest firmware from our firmware archive and install it on your phone using a Windows PC.

Update: The February 2020 security update is also rolling out to unlocked Galaxy A50 units in the US. You can download the update over the air and from our firmware archive.
