As reported by Tizenhelp(via Sammobile) Galaxy A70 is reportedly receiving One UI 2.5 update based on Android 10 in Europe. However, it looks like the update is only for Ukraine as of now. That said, Samsung might be initially testing the update before expanding to all regions where Galaxy A70 exists.
The update has a firmware version A705FNXXU5CTK4 and weighs 1421 MB. As mentioned earlier, it includes the latest security patch(November 1, 2020) along with improvements to the keyboard, Wi-Fi, keyboard features, and more. Additionally, Sammobile report says the Galaxy A70 update is only rolling out for Kyivstar mobile network carrier. This corroborates the above-mentioned theory which Samsung usually carries out for its update cycle.
Anyway, the new update seems to add a split keyboard support on landscape mode, YouTube search feature on Samsung Keyboard. Plus, users can now use Bitmoji stickers on Always On Display(AOD). For Messages, users get SOS messages, location sharing via SOS for every 30mins up to 24hrs.
Apart from the regular One UI 2.5 update, Galaxy A70 also gets a new Wi-Fi setting features. Users can now see the quality of a new connection, Wi-Fi password requesting feature. Samsung has recently been updating its mid-range Galaxy A and budget M series of devices with One UI 2.5, and One UI Core 2.5
In any case, this is just an incremental update, and it should eventually get the bigger One UI 3.0 based on Android 11 soon. However, unfortunately Galaxy A70 isn’t present in the list of A series devices to get updates up to three years. If you are someone living in Ukraine currently, you can try updating the Galaxy A70 by navigating to Settings->Software Updates->Download and Install.
