    It was impressive to see how quickly Samsung rolled out the Android 13 update to even those devices that are old, didn’t sell well, or aren’t very popular. Well, the company is only getting faster at rolling out updates as each day passes by. While we haven’t even reached the end of the month, Samsung has already started pushing the December 2022 security update to its not-so-popular devices. Case in point: Galaxy Xcover 5 (SM-G525F).

    The latest OTA software update for the Galaxy Xcover 5 (SM-G525F) comes bearing the firmware version G525FXXS5CVL4, and it brings with it the December 2022 security patch, which fixes a total of 93 security vulnerabilities. The update is currently rolling out in 32 countries across the globe (most of them are in Europe). You can check the list of countries in which the latest security update is rolling out with the help of our firmware database.

    If you are a Galaxy Xcover 5 user in any of these countries, your smartphone should have already prompted you to get the latest update. If you haven’t received any such notification, you can check for the update manually by going to Settings » Software update and clicking on Download and install. You can also download the firmware from our database and flash it manually.

    The Galaxy Xcover 5 is Samsung’s rugged smartphone that was launched in the March of 2021. At the time of the launch, the phone came with Android 11 and One UI 3.0 onboard. Earlier this month, the phone was upgraded to Android 13-based One UI 5.0. Considering that the Galaxy Xcover 5 is supposed to get three versions of Android, it should be upgraded to Android 14 sometime next year.
