Samsung's three-year-old Galaxy A51 gets a new security update

It’s been a few months since the Galaxy A51 received a firmware update, and it’s about time we made a change. Samsung has just started seeding a new update for the Galaxy A51 and is now rolling out a new security patch for mid-range 2019 phones.

Although Samsung has made the October 2022 security patch available for some devices, the Galaxy A51 is not among them. Instead, mid-range phones are now getting the September 2022 security patch. And as of this writing, availability is limited to SM-A515F variant in Russia.

Update brings firmware version A515FXXS5FVI1, and as you can probably tell from the firmware number structure, the update only includes newer security patches and nothing else. No new features to look forward to, but security improvements are nothing to be ashamed of, especially for an aging 2019 mid-range phone.

The September update fixed more than two dozen vulnerabilities, including memory access errors in various functions, and a bug that allowed attackers to make emergency calls remotely.

Availability will soon expand to more countries and variants. Galaxy A51 users in eligible markets can download the firmware via Arrangement applications on the phone after they access “Software update” and tap “Download and install.” Galaxy A51 users can also download official firmware files from our website and install updates manually via Samsung’s ODIN tool for Windows PC.
