Announced together with the Galaxy Z Flip and the Galaxy S20 series, the One UI 2.1 update is gradually being made available to some recent devices from the South Korean manufacturer, which included the Galaxy S10 family, Galaxy Tab S6, Note 10 and more.
After making available for all the latest advanced devices, now Samsung has also started to turn its attention to some mid-range devices launched this year and the first to benefit from this is the Galaxy A51.
Included in the so-called “April security patch”, the One UI 2.1 update will require the download of a file approximately 1.2GB in size and will take the device from version A515FXXU2ATB1 to A515FXXU3BTD4, thus benefiting the device with the security implementations introduced last month.
Among the features included in the latest version, we have the implementation of the new AR emoji, fast sharing feature for local file sharing, improvements to the Samsung keyboard and the Gallery app and many other hidden charges, in addition to changing the bootloader from v2 to v3, which will mean that downgrades are not officially possible.
Initially, this update will be made available to Egypt, Israel, Kenya, Morocco, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Turkey, while other countries are expected to receive it soon.
It is worth remembering that Samsung always makes these updates available through OTA (over-the-air), requiring only verification in the device’s settings through the “Software update” option and then “Download and Install”.
