If you remember, last year Samsung announced the arrival of the Android 11 update with One UI 3 for its smart devices, and it released these updates for eligible phones at the same time, well, there are no strange things here! But the strange thing is that the Korean company in the current year and with Android 12 alongside the One UI 4 has also stated the date of the arrival of updates for these eligible devices, but nevertheless it has started sending stable versions to users before the predetermined date, up to two months in some times!
Samsung has taken the process of sending out new system updates for its smart devices in 2022 very seriously. And after it finished the updates of its eligible flagships, it started paying attention to the mid-rangs from last year and the year before, as it started yesterday by sending the Android 12 update to the Galaxy Note 10 Lite and Galaxy A72, and then hours ago it sent the stable version to the Galaxy S10 Lite, and now it seems that the company has sent the One UI 4 update for the Galaxy A52 as well.
And if you don’t know, in fact, you don’t have to wait for the official update to arrive for your region, but you can download and install it manually yourself now, even if it was originally directed to a different country.
Samsung Galaxy A52 (Android 12)
According to Samsung’s plan, which it shared with its users in the last period, the two brothers, the Galaxy A52 and also the A72, were supposed to get the Android 12 update in February 2022, but despite that, the A72 was updated yesterday, and today the same goes for the Samsung A52 with a stable version A525FXXU4BUL8 which and size of 6.81GB and it’s currently being sent to users while talking in Russia, but do not worry because it is supposed to be up to all other users around the world in the next few days.
The new update came with many new features that came with Android 12, as well as the One UI 4, in addition to several bug fixes for previous versions, and here you will get the December 2021 security patch.
As for the new things, the Android 12 on Galaxy A52 came with a lot of changes, whether virtual or under the cover, especially those that you will find with the completely new Samsung One UI 4. Some of these additions include the new widget system in Android 12, which came with Material You design, new look for animated effects when opening apps, new design for the Quick Tasks window as well as the ability to apply night mode depending on the background colors you’re using now.
Download One UI 4 for Galaxy A52
As we are used to, the official Samsung updates for the operating system as well as the One UI 4 often do not reach all users at the same time, but these versions are released in batches, and for groups of countries divided at intervals. So currently your friend in another country may have got the new update while your phone is still running Android 11 that came out of the box. So, I highly advise you to wait for the official update to arrive in your region.
