Samsung began sending out the April 2021 security patch to eligible devices before the beginning of the month. It’s now gradually releasing the patch for more smartphones. Earlier this month, the company released the security level to Galaxy A52. The latest Samsung flagship to receive the current security maintenance release is Galaxy A52 5G.
The latest build for the 5G variant of Galaxy A52 can be identified from the firmware version A526BXXS1AUD1. The update resolves 21 exposures and vulnerabilities ranging from various potential attack vectors, encryption algorithm oversights, and unexpected behaviors from specific execution policies being misconfigured. Moreover, it also includes fixes for 30 vulnerabilities that Google tag as severe or critical.
The software is hitting the Galaxy A52 5G units in Brazil, Chile, and Colombia. It is expected to expand further to other regions in a couple of weeks.
If you are a user in any of these countries, the OTA update will shortly hit your device. Or as always, you can give it a manual check by heading to device Settings -> Software update, if the firmware pops up, tap on Download and install.
