It has been a few weeks now that various smartphones said “old“, benefit from an update, generally aimed at filling a more or less critical flaw. This was the case at Samsung this summer with several million Galaxy smartphones concerned, but also at Apple, with an update intended for iPhones that remained under iOS 12. In this new school year, it is again the Korean giant that stands out , with the deployment of a gigantic update intended for the Galaxy A51.
A huge update for Samsung’s Galaxy A51
Indeed, launched at the beginning of 2020 with a certain Android 10 on board, the Samsung Galaxy A51 is now compatible with a new update, the deployment of which has just started. An update that responds to the name A515FXXU5FVG4and which surprises by its imposing weight, namely 955 MB.
Even more surprising, despite its weight, this imposing update does not bring any notable novelty, and does not even come with the last security patch of September, the Galaxy A51 being still and always limited to that of July 2022 ( including after the installation of this new update therefore).
In all likelihood, this new firmware is content to optimize the stability and performance of the Galaxy A51, but also corrects certain weaknesses on the security side, without further details, however.
Recall that this mid-range smartphone signed Samsung received the One UI 3 update, based on Android 11, at the beginning of 2021. Earlier this year it is the One UI 4 update, based on Android 12 , which has been deployed. The smartphone should receive its next major update next year, in order to migrate to the new Android 13.
Remember that the Galaxy A51 is one of Samsung’s most popular smartphones and has sold millions of copies, the latter being offered at a rather enticing price, in addition to offering quite honorable performance. Our full test of the Samsung Galaxy A51 can be found directly at this address.
