Samsung is making a noticeable effort in trying to update all its eligible smartphones to the Android 12 OS with One UI 4. The Korean company has already updated all its flagship phones for the past year and the year before, and yesterday it started trending for its mid-range eligible devices for the same update as well and has updated the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite. Today, the company has started updating its mid-range Galaxy A series phones, starting with the Samsung Galaxy A72. So, do you want to try while the official update even if it hasn’t arrived yet? Well, then follow what we’re going to say next.
Samsung Galaxy A72 (Android 12)
In fact, the Samsung A72 was supposed to get the Android 12 update in the first quarter of 2022 “in February”, but with that, the Korean company surprised us and in the early hours of this morning released the new firmware update for phone users with a stable version, which is considered The first major OS update for the A72.
One UI 4 update for Samsung A72 is currently arriving for users in Russia and Poland with the version number A725FOXM4BULA – it also came in a size of 6.51GB. Don’t be surprised by how big it is because here we are talking about a whole new version of the operating system as well as the user interface, so before starting any steps you must have a stable internet connection with a suitable speed to avoid any interruption while downloading the update.
The new update came with many new features that came with Android 12, as well as the One UI 4 interface, in addition to several bug fixes for previous versions, here you will get the December 2021 security patch, which is strange because the same update for the Galaxy Note 10 Lite came with the January 2022 security patch!
Download One UI 4 for Galaxy A72
As we are used to, the official Samsung updates for the operating system as well as One UI 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.
