Galaxy A70 Android 10 and One UI 2.0 update released!

Samsung has released the Android 10 and One UI 2.0 update for another one of its mid-range smartphones. The Galaxy A70 is on the receiving end this time around, with the Android 10 update for the phone rolling out in Ukraine at this time. Sporting firmware version A705FNXXU5BTC2, the update comes bundled with the February 2020 security patch.

At this point in time, the update is only available in Ukraine, and it could be a couple of weeks before it reaches other markets. We say that because the same was the case for the Galaxy A50s Android 10 update, which was initially released only in Vietnam and then came to other markets a few weeks later. That means the rollout could extend into April, the month Samsung already mentions as the time frame for the A70’s Android 10 update in most countries.

It will be interesting to see if One UI 2.0 for the Galaxy A70 includes features like a built-in screen recorder. We haven’t seen that particular feature make its way to any non-flagship Galaxy device through the Android 10 update yet, but with the Galaxy A70 falling in the upper mid-range segment, it will probably get most of the new functionality. We can’t confirm this at the moment, though if you have received the update on your Galaxy A70, feel free to check and let us know down in the comments.

To grab the Android 10 update over the air on your Galaxy A70, open its Settings app, select Software update, and tap Download and install. Alternatively, download Android 10 firmware from our firmware archive and install it on your phone using a Windows computer.

Samsung is constantly lying! Steals your customers! After a while you should test the 11 androids.

I would like to draw your attention to the A70 update that April 30 will be this year! Although I don’t know which year they were thinking of!

Got the update on Friday 27th in Trinidad and Tobago, SM-A705MN, and yes it does have Screen Recorder. Haven’t been through the changes, overall it seems not that much different from Pie (Dark Mode overall is nice but I’vebeen usingdarkwallpapers for years!), much bigger difference between Oreo and Pie.

Will update as I come across more…

I guess the update for Samsung A70 will reach everyone before ending of April, Because Samsung posted something about the Android 10 update to all Galaxy devices on their Samsung Members App. And the date I saw for A70 is April so that means before the end of April it would have reach everyone. In Nigeria here i keep on checking it myself through the update in settings, although I know when the update is out I will receive a notification about it though.

Hi, guys, which got Android 10 for Samsung A70. Can you write here shortly what news is in this update for Samsung A70? About dark mode, some design changes, also some features which was mentioned in this web site I know. I wonder about new features like screen recording (not just in game launcher), dex which is only in premium models and etc. No need big explain, just please write changelog shortly about this update. Thanks in advance

Its depend many things, so it’s hard to say. Even Samsung can’t say you exactly date when you will get this update. Roadplan is April, so I advice you to wait april

No issues here. Are you using the original charger? My charging speed is still fast.

Runs great. No bugs so far for me. Switches Samsung Members app to Ukraine. Laggy at first restart but stabilizes afterwards. Many subtle changes here and there. Welcome update overall. Hope this rolls out fully soon.

Screen recorder is here but it is too laggy.Performance got better,but sometimes animations are lagging.It needs a software update that mainly focuses on bugs.

This device seems like to be in bottom of Samsung’s updates. Galaxy A50 already got March patch. A step back from others.

In my point of view, we are at the lowest priority in terms of software upgrades.
