Samsung, in the recent past, has really turned the table when it comes to rolling out the latest security patches. And the same goes for the Galaxy A50, as the device is now getting an October security update.
There was a time where Samsung devices were flaked for not rolling out timely updates. But currently, the Korean OEM has become one of the sought after OEMs when it comes to receiving the latest updates.
We are just a few days into October, and the 2019 mid-ranger Galaxy A50 is receiving the latest October security update. It is probably one of the first devices, if not the first to receive the latest patch.
Well, at least when it comes to Samsung devices, the Samsung Galaxy A50 is the first to get updated with the latest October security update. Not even the flagships have received the update yet.
Another good thing with this update highlights that Samsung is taking care of its older lineup of devices. This isn't a statement you'd likely hear if this was a few years back.
Samsung has really grown as a dependable and reliable OEM. In fact, recently the company announced the revision of its software update policy.
Now some eligible devices from Samsung will be receiving software update support for three years. With this, Samsung joins the likes of OnePlus and Google.
The Galaxy A50 October security update is purely incremental in nature
Coming back to the latest Galaxy A50 October security update, it is purely incremental in nature and does not add anything new for the phone.
It arrives with version number A505FNXXS5BTI9 and the OTA weighs a mere 123 MB in size. So, this update won't be too hard on your data pack.
The firmware version also indicates that the October update is first arriving for the Galaxy A50 international model. But, Samsung will surely catch up with other regions pretty soon. So, just hold onto your device for some time.
Besides, the Galaxy flagships will also be in the line to pick up the latest October security updates in the coming weeks. The update will be arriving via OTA in batches.
Meaning that it will take some time in hitting all the units. However, users can always go ahead and check for the update manually by heading over to Settings>>Software Update>>Download and Install.
If there is a new update available, then you can tap on the notification to update your Galaxy A50 with the latest security patch.
