The Samsung Galaxy A50 is now also receiving the December update
Today's security update for December is ready for Samsung's popular Galaxy A50. The update also seems to improve the operation of the fingerprint sensor – disrupted after the previous update -.
Galaxy A50 update December 2019
When the Galaxy A50 received the November update last month, it promised improved fingerprint recognition. Instead, re-registering fingerprints turned out to be very difficult, or even impossible. Today's update seems to fix this problem, and it also brings the new security fixes. On our device we were able to record new prints without any problems, at least.
So today a new Galaxy A50 update is released. The almost 122 MB download package contains firmware version A505FNXXS3ASL1. Samsung's own changelist does not mention any details – only that "the security of your device has been improved". If you go to Settings phone and you tap Software data, you see that the December security patch is present after installation.
Google and Samsung did not yet publish information about the new patch – it is too early in the month for that. Only later this week do we expect to know more about what this patch does.
The update is from now on OTA – Over The Air – available on the Dutch, unbranded Galaxy A50 (thanks for your report, Eric!) We can not soon check whether it is also for branded models of Vodafone or T-Mobile or for Belgian devices. rolls out. If you have one of them, we would be happy to read any confirmation in the comments below 🙂.
In any case, you will automatically receive a notification when the update for your Galaxy A50 is ready. Or you can check it via Settings -> Software update -> Download and install directly yourself.
