While Samsung Galaxy A12 smartphone users are waiting for the Android 12-based One UI 4.1 update, the company is only releasing the monthly security patch update for the phone. Unfortunately, it’s not even the April 2022 security patch.

The Galaxy A12 owners are getting the March 2022 Android security patch update in Indian markets. This update comes with better system security and stability, which can be identified via One UI build version A127FXXU5AVC5.

Samsung Galaxy A12 Android 12 One UI 4.1:

A week ago, Samsung started testing the Android 12-based One UI 4.1 update for Galaxy A12 smartphones in India. Although there is no confirmed date for the release of this update at this time, this test shows that the company will not take much time to release the update.

This will be the first Android 12 update for the Galaxy A12, which means skipping One UI 4.0, it’s directly taking a jump to One UI 4.1. Also, this will be the last major Android OS for the devices, according to Samsung’s software update policy. After this, the A12 will only be eligible for security patch updates for 2 years.

Galaxy S23 is a big upgrade, but Samsung skips seamless Android updates yet again

Samsung Galaxy S23 Lavender

Samsung’s latest Galaxy S23 series has everything for today’s needs including the fastest processor, the latest software system out of the box, and long updates support. With the Galaxy S23 series, Samsung skipped bringing the seamless Android updates feature, which was highly awaited.

According to AndroidPolice, the Galaxy S23 Ultra (naturally others too) doesn’t support the seamless Android updates feature after all. To verify it, the source managed to run the Treble Info tool, which confirmed Samsung has not enabled the seamless updates feature.

It is surprising that Samsung has not adopted the seamless Android updates support for the Galaxy S23 series. In an interview last year, the One UI department head confirmed that the company is working to bring seamless updates to Galaxy, which could be possible with One UI 6.

In the recent past, it was reported that the Android maker (Google) is working to make it mandatory for smartphone vendors to bring support for seamless updates. Samsung is best in terms of Android software updates, matching Apple’s dominance. Still, the company is missing this important feature, which became common nowadays.

No one is unaware of Google and Samsung’s sweet friendship, but the lack of such as great feature forces us to scratch our heads. With seamless updates, smartphones install new firmware updates in a second virtual partition to reduce downtime.

Smartphones like Google Pixel support seamless Android updates feature, letting you continue to use the device during the installation of software. Instead of going into a long downtime, seamless updates help phones to install the software to a second partition while you continue to use the main one.

As soon as the installation completes in the second partition, you are just required to reboot it for a few seconds to merge the new incremental software. We hope the Samsung flagship coming in the next half would eventually bring the seamless updates feature.

Samsung A32 F22 Maintenance mode

Samsung has started rolling out the latest software updates for Galaxy A32 and Galaxy F22 smartphones in India. Although the update brings the outdated December 2022 Android security patch, it installs a new Maintenance mode feature on your Samsung Galaxy A32 and Galaxy F22 smartphones.

Maintenance mode is basically the feature of Android 13-based One UI 5.0 software. Both of these phones grabbed the update in the latest 2022 but due to some reasons, the company did not install Maintenance mode at that time.

Now as the feature is released for the corresponding device users, they can experience enhanced privacy. Maintenance mode protects your privacy when someone else is using your phone, such as when you send it in for repairs.

Once enabled, it will prevent your pictures, messages, accounts, and other personal data from being accessed when you are not around your phone. It automatically switches your phone to a new guest user account so that no one can access your data.
