Most recent firmware-related news concerning Samsung phones has to do with Android 13, but some low-cost devices have been lagging behind the rest of the pack, and the Galaxy A01 is certainly among them. The unlocked Galaxy A01 variant in the USA is only now getting Android 12.
Samsung started rolling out Android 12 for the carrier version of the Galaxy A01 in December. Now, the unlocked models are getting the same treatment. Android 12 is accompanied by One UI 4.1 Core. And in this case, the update carries firmware version A015U1UEU5CVL2. The update comes with the September 2022 security patch.
Since this is the stripped-down “Core” version of One UI 4.1, Galaxy A01 users won’t get all the features that were previously included with the Android 12 update for most other Galaxy phones. Some improvements to the cosmetics of the UI are expected.
Galaxy A01 users in the USA should get an update notification, or they can try triggering the update by opening the Settings app, accessing “Software update,” and tapping “Download and install.” If you have the Galaxy A01 and prefer manual updates over a PC, you can also download the official firmware files from our website.
