April update now also available on the Samsung Galaxy A50
At the same time as the Galaxy S10, the Galaxy A50 also gets the April update. Unlike the S10, the update on the A50 is a pure security update, with no functional frills.
Galaxy A50 update April 2020
One of the Samsung phones that has yet to get the upgrade to Android 10 is the Galaxy A50. That will probably happen next month, but now a security update with the latest security patch arrives. You can download it now OTA – Over The Air. The package is more than 112MB in size, and contains firmware version A505FNXXS4ATD1.
The security update of the month of April is available after installation, as you can see in the Software details screen. However, we do not know exactly what things will be improved in terms of security. Samsung and Google both did not yet disclose information about the exact content of the new patch, despite the fact that the first week of the month is almost over. It will probably happen later this week, of course, but for now we simply do not know what the patch does on the Galaxy A50.
If all goes well, this was the last security patch under Android 9. The next update will hopefully bring Android 10, so it will be a lot bigger and drastic. If you can already read how to prepare your Samsung phone for the Android 10 update. Read more about the innovations and changes in our overview with One UI 2.0 features.
We do know that the new update became available simultaneously in a large number of European countries, including the Netherlands and Belgium. To download it now you must have a so-called unbranded version of the Galaxy A50. That is a device that was not purchased directly from Vodafone or T-Mobile itself. Have you bought your branded device from one of these providers? Then you have to be patient, until it also becomes available for your model.
You will automatically receive a notification on your phone that you can download the new update. Of course, you can check the availability yourself if you go to Software update in Settings and tap Download and install there.
