Samsung is looking to be testing a new major OS update for the Galaxy A52s. The new test firmware has been spotted on the CheckFirm app with the firmware version A528BXXU1DVH1. Although it does not explicitly reveal the Android version, speculations are that the firmware version might belong to either Android 13 or Android 12L.
The Galaxy A52s was released last year with Android 11 out of the box. It has already secured its first OS update in the form of Android 12. And, according to Samsung’s software update policy, the Galaxy A52s will be upgraded to Android 13.
Does the CheckFirm suggest new OS update for the Galaxy A52s is coming sooner than expected? Well, we can’t be sure about this at this point. But, what we know is that Samsung has already kicked off the Android 13-based One UI 5 Beta program for the Galaxy S22 series in various parts of the world. In the coming weeks, more devices will be added to One UI 5 beta program.
Samsung has been regularly sending new security updates to the Galaxy A52s. The South Korean giant has already released the August security patch to over a dozen of Galaxy phones, which also includes Galaxy A52s.
Launched in 2021, the Galaxy A52s mid-range phone offers a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a FullHD+ resolution and a punch-hole for a 32MP selfie camera. It is powered by a Snapdragon 778G 5G SoC and packs a 4,5000mAh battery with support for fast charging. Around the back, there’s a quad-camera setup which includes a 64MP primary shooter, a 12MP ultrawide lens, and a pair of 5MP lens for depth and macro shots.
