After updating its premium smartphone to One UI 2.5, Samsung has begun to roll out the same update with fewer features to its budget devices. Starting with the Galaxy A series, the update has been also extended to the Galaxy M series. Now, Galaxy A50s has become the latest phone to get the new One UI update.
The Galaxy A71 was the first Samsung budget smartphone to receive One UI 2.5. The update was spoon made available for Galaxy A51. Later, even Galaxy M21 and Galaxy M31 received it but in the form of One UI Core 2.5
Now, a few days later, the update is also live for Galaxy A50s units in Vietnam with firmware version A507FNXXU5CTK3 (via SamMobile). Apart from bringing new features, the new system update for the handset bumps up the security patch level to November 2020.
Talking about new features, they are exactly the same ones that were delivered to Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71. Hence, the changelog is identical. The only difference is that the build for those two devices came with the October 2020 security patch.
That means we are looking at the features like Network Quality Information Display, Request WiFi Password, Bitmoji stickers as AOD, split keyboard mode in landscape in Samsung Keyboard, enhancements for Pro Video feature, and SOS functionality in the Messages app.
Having said that, this update should be available for users in other regions in the coming days. To check if the OTA build has hit your device, head over to Settings > Software update.
