The Android 13 and One UI 5.0 update is rolling out to yet another budget Samsung smartphone as we near the end of 2022. Samsung has released the update for the Galaxy M12 in Russia and will hopefully expand availability to other markets in the next couple of weeks.
Android 13 for the Galaxy M12 comes merely five months after it was updated to Android 12, which is an excellent example of how quick the rollout of Android 13/One UI 5.0 has been compared to previous major OS upgrades for Samsung Galaxy devices. More than 50 Galaxy devices have been updated in the last two months, and despite how fast Samsung has been going, the updates have mostly been bug-free.
The Galaxy M12 Android 13 update bumps the firmware version up to M127FXXU3CVL2 and includes the November 2022 security patch. Owners of the phone should get an automatic notification once the update is available in their country but can also attempt a manual download from the phone's Settings » Software update menu. Alternatively, Android 13 firmware can be downloaded from our firmware archive and flashed to the phone using a Windows PC.
To see all that is new in Android 13 and One UI 5.0, check out the videos below. Also, if you own a Galaxy M12, expect Android 13 to be the last big OS upgrade for the phone and to get mostly security updates going forward.
