Samsung Galaxy A71 starts getting May 2021 security update

Samsung Galaxy A71 Update

The Galaxy A71 is one of the most selling smartphone offerings from Samsung, which was launched last year. This device came with Android 10-based One UI 2.5 out of the box and currently running the One UI 3.1 on top of the Android 11 operating system.

However, this device had received the  Android 11 update around two months ago, and it belongs to the quarterly update family, the company started releasing a new s/w update, which comes with a newer security patch. Initially released in Brazil, the new Galaxy A71 update bears version number A715FXXU4BUE1.

If we go with the changelog, this update installs the latest May 2021 security patch in order to increase system security. At the same time, it also brings enhancements to the system software and stock functions for a better overall user experience.

To check for software updates manually, just open device Settings >> Software updates >> Download and install>> Install now.

Reminder: As you know, the Galaxy A71 launched with Android 10 and as per the company’s software upgrade policy, it is eligible for three major Android upgrades. That means you will be getting the One UI 3.5 update (Android 11) later this year, followed by Android 12 next year, and Android 13 in 2023.
