    Unlocked Galaxy A42 5G gets Android 13 and One UI 5.0 in the USA

    Firmware

    Last updated: January 18th, 2023 at 12:12 UTC+01:00

    Last week, Samsung rolled out the Android 13 update for the carrier version of the Galaxy A42 5G in the USA. Now, the company has turned its attention toward the unlocked Galaxy A42 5G model, and as you may have guessed, the device is now getting updated with One UI 5.0.

    Galaxy A42 5G (SM-A426U1) users in the USA can identify the new update by firmware version A426U1UEU4DVL3. Similar to Android 13 for the carrier model, this new update includes the November 2022 security patch. The Galaxy A42 5G appears to be lagging a bit in terms of security patches, but it should receive a new one relatively soon (either this or next month).

    As usual, the big change here comes in the form of Android 13 and the accompanying One UI 5.0. The experience should have improved with minor UI refreshes and better optimization. The Galaxy A42 5G should feel snappier, at least in places, and users will see the addition of a “Connected devices” section inside the Settings app, which makes it much easier to manage connectivity features like SmartThings, Android Auto, Galaxy Wear, and more.

    Galaxy A42 5G users in the USA should get an Android 13 update notification at any moment, or they can trigger the update process via the Settings app by accessing “Software update” and tapping “Download and install.” If you prefer manual updates via a PC or you want to skip the wait, you can download official Samsung firmware files from our website.
