The Galaxy A71 is one of the best-selling Samsung smartphones in 2020. The handset did so well in sales that the company has promised three generations of Android updates for it. The South Korean tech giant even rolled out some Galaxy S20 features to this phone and Galaxy A51 along with an exclusive AltZLife feature. Now, surprisingly, it has also begun to receive One UI 2.5 update as well.

That said, though the update is called One UI 2.5, it does not bring all those high-end features. Instead, it comes with some minor additions that anyway still improves the overall experience of the software.
Some of these features include “Network Quality information Display” that shows the speed of WiFi connections, “Request Password” to request WiFi password from the nearby connected person who is in the user’s contact list, support for Bitmoji stickers on AOD, YouTube search within Samsung Keyboard, support for split keyboard in landscape mode, and an SOS feature in Messages app that sends location information to selected contacts for every 30 minutes for 24 hours.
Last but not least, according to SamMobile, the One UI 2.5 update for Galaxy A71 comes with October 2020 security patch and bears firmware version A715FXXU3ATI8. It is currently being rolled out in batches globally and therefore, it may take time to reach your device.
