In the US, more versions of the Galaxy A02s will get Android 12

News Summary:

  • So it may not be able to take advantage of all the One UI 4.1 features that have become available on high-end devices. Nonetheless, this is still a major version of the Android operating system and should undergo some significant changes and additions. Android 12 One UI 4.1 Core is the last major firmware update for the Galaxy A02s. The device shipped with Android 10 a few years ago, ending firmware support for major updates. Devices will continue to receive security patches twice a year, or more frequently if critical security issues are required.

  • Samsung made Android 12 available on its US Galaxy A02s a few months ago, but the phone hasn’t received the update on all US carriers at the same time. The update is finally out. Specifically, Android 12 is now available for his Tracfone’s Galaxy A02s (SM-S124DL). This update comes with firmware version S124DLUDU8CVK4 and includes security patches for November 2022. Also, as expected from the Android 12 update, a new version of One UI i.e. One UI 4.1 Core is also provided. In fact, the Galaxy A02s run on a lightweight core version of the company’s own software.

Galaxy A02 users on the US Tracfone network should be able to download Android 12 when they receive a notification or by opening the Settings app and going to Software Updates and going to the “Download and Install” type. You can also download the official Samsung firmware from the website and install the update manually.
