Verizon Galaxy A50 is getting its first update as build ASEL

Verizon launched the Samsung Galaxy A50 in the US last week only but the device is already up for a software update. The Big Red carrier announced the update today on its software blog, where it revealed that the update brings May security patches and performance improvements.

Costing $350, the Galaxy A50 is easily one of the best budget phones you could buy at Verizon Wireless today.

The A50 packs in decent hardware. It’s powered by Exynos 9610 processor and features a 3-camera lens setup at the back with a 25MP single lens taking selfie duties. You also get a 6.4″ display that features an infinity-U Super AMOLED display, which is also one of the biggest selling points of the A50.

The Galaxy A50 is pretty good on battery life too thanks to the fast-charging capable 4,000 mAh battery it houses, while other cool features about the A50 includes an in-display fingerprint sensor and rarer these days, a 3.5mm headphone jack. Lest we forget, the device features ample RAM and storage at 4GB and 64GB capacity and is powered by Samsung’s impressive One UI software that is based on Android 9 Pie (it’s eligible for Android Q).

The software version of the update is A505USQU1ASEL. If you have already got the A50 home, check for an update now. Here’s how: open the Settings app > scroll down and tap on Software update > Download and install. If your device is already eligible, the device will notify you of the same.
