We saw the latest version of the operating system arrive on the Galaxy M21 and Galaxy M31, for example, but the A-series is also getting some of the limelight here.

The turn now comes to one of the most popular models of the South Korean manufacturer in the past year, a Samsung Galaxy A51 heir to other Galaxy A5X that in previous years were placed without too much trouble among the best sellers in the market. The Galaxy A51 now leaves behind Android 10 to enter not only in a new version of the operating system but also of its layer, as One UI 3.0 arrives.

Android 11 and with the February security patch

In the world of updates, there have been no noticeable changes in recent years, and neither happens with this Galaxy A51. The new layer and system version are initially seen in Russia, the place was chosen for the start of the rollout, and will later reach every market in which the Samsung Galaxy A51 has been marketed.

The Samsung Galaxy A51 receives the software version A515FXXU4DUB1 (Russia) with a weight close to 2 GB. It brings the February 2021 security patch apart from Android 11 and One UI 3.0; With the usual changes you get with the evolution in software, such as improved smart replies, notification bubbles, Android 11 noticeably improves privacy with one-time permissions (for the microphone, camera, and location). Samsung includes an aesthetic change with One UI 3.0 and also improves performance and battery drain.

It will probably take a week or so to reach Samsung Galaxy A51s outside Asia, which is usually the case. Still, if you have this model you can check if you have a new version available by going to the system settings and ‘Software Update‘. Click on ‘Download and install’ to have the phone crawl Samsung’s servers.
