The Samsung Galaxy A51 is reportedly getting its Android 12 update in Saudi Arabia and South Africa. Launched in January 2020, the smartphone initially came with Android 10 out-of-the-box. The update can be seen as part of the smartphone maker’s broader update rollout plan, which was initiated in April with the Europe and US regions. The Android 12 update is expected to roll out to Asian and South American regions soon as well.
According to a report by GSMArena, the Samsung Galaxy A51 has started receiving its Android 12 update coupled with the smartphone maker’s One UI 4.1 skin in Saudi Arabia and South Africa. The report adds that the update will likely make its way to Asia and South America as part of the broader update rollout schedule.
As per another report, the Galaxy A51 received its Android 12 update back in March in markets like Russia, UAE and Vietnam. The update reportedly made its way to the US earlier this month.
As for the One UI 4.1 update and what it brings to the Samsung Galaxy A51, users can expect multiple features such as: B. A new home screen with larger icons. You can choose themes for your phone which can also be applied to the applications. The brightness slider on the latest One UI only shows up when you swipe down on the notification panel, although you can set it to always appear on top of the notification panel in settings.
The Android 12-based One UI 4.1 update for the Samsung Galaxy A51 also adds the Google Discover newsfeed to the home screen, which can be accessed by swiping right. You can also use the Edge panel to access other features, such as B. Multi-window and application shortcuts by swiping left from the edge of the screen.
The Android 12 update for the Galaxy A51 also brings privacy features like the Knox-protected Secure Folder feature and a privacy panel in Settings that lets you choose permissions for individual apps.
In February, Samsung’s website reflected that the mid-range smartphone will only receive updates every two years, out of four promised for the rest of the Samsung Galaxy A-series. The Galaxy A51 5G variant continues to receive quarterly security patches.
