Samsung’s efforts in updating its Android handsets have been rather impressive lately, as it tries to live up to its promise of providing consumers with competent software support. With that said, the company’s Galaxy A42 5G has begun receiving the latest May 2022 security patch, which is currently available for download for users in Taiwan.
The new update comes with build number A426BXXU3DVE2, and comes with fixes for several security and privacy issues. Earlier this year, the phone received the latest Android 12 OS version alongside One UI 4.1.
The Samsung Galaxy A42 5G was originally launched back in 2020. It came with a 6.6-inch Super AMOLED display, a 5,000 mAh battery, and was powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 750 5G chipset. The phone also came with a quad-camera array, which included a 48 MP main camera, an 8 MP ultrawide lens, a 5 MP macro lens, and a 5 MP depth sensor.
Samsung has recently been active in releasing consistent software updates for its phones across different price ranges. While not all its handsets receive major OS upgrades like Android 12, a considerable number of smartphones have received monthly security and software patches. You can check if your phone is eligible for the update by going into your Settings app, and navigating to the “Software Update” section.
