Samsung pushes One UI 5.1 to the Galaxy A52s 5G
The Galaxy A52s 5G is the latest Samsung device to receive the One UI 5.1 update. The company has released the new One UI version for the 2021 premium mid-range smartphone in its homeland South Korea. A global release should follow in the coming days.
The One UI 5.1 update for the Galaxy A52s 5G is rolling out with the firmware build number A528NKSU2EWB4 in Samsung’s domestic market (via). We expect the company to cover the phone with the latest iteration of its custom Android software internationally soon.
The handset didn’t launch in the US but was sold in Europe, Africa, Latin America, and Asia. The firmware version may vary slightly in these markets, but the phone will get the same goodies everywhere.
Speaking of goodies, this update brings a lot of them. Firstly, the Galaxy A52s 5G is picking up the February 2023 Android security patch that contains more than 50 vulnerability fixes. Samsung’s official security bulletin reveals that last month’s SMR (Security Maintenance Release) patched at least five critical vulnerabilities in Android OS. It also contained fixes for seven Galaxy-specific issues, including one in Secure Folder.
Along with these security enhancements, the Galaxy A52s 5G is also getting a host of new features and improvements with the latest update. One UI 5.1 adds new selfie effects that can be quickly accessed within the camera app while shooting selfies.
And, if you took hundreds of selfies and other photos and videos during a family trip, sharing them with others is easier than ever with a new Shared Family Album in Gallery.
Power users will find multitasking more efficient with easier resizing of pop-up windows and an improved split-screen mode. Samsung has also improved Bixby Routines to allow you to automate more tasks, including changing ringtones and fonts.
Your Galaxy phone can even automatically change wallpapers based on your activity. Continued browsing across connected laptops and tablets is another handy feature. Last but not least, One UI 5.1 brings smart settings suggestions, improved widgets, and custom folders for screenshots and screen recordings.
