Samsung is unleashed in these last days of the year and launches more updates for some of its android devices. Android 12 also arrives on the Galaxy Fold “Original” and on Galaxy S10 5G, while new security patches land on Samsung Galaxy A51 (even those of January 2022), Samsung Galaxy A21s, Samsung Galaxy A11, Samsung Galaxy F41, and on the tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019).
New updates Samsung Galaxy Fold and Samsung Galaxy S10 5G
Samsung continues with the rollout of Android 12 And One UI 4.0 and this time it’s up to Samsung Galaxy Fold, the first foldable smartphone in the series, ea Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. The first is the firmware F900FXXU6GUL9, currently being distributed in Europe starting from France, for the second of G977BXXUBGULB arriving from Switzerland.
The news for both are plentiful and includes a general overhaul of the interface with touches of Material You, privacy indicators that indicate the use of microphone and camera, new system apps, new widgets, and a security patch in December 2021. We remind you that the Samsung Galaxy S10 series started receiving Android 12 yesterday.
New update Samsung Galaxy A51
Samsung surprises and, although Google may not agree very much, it releases the January 2022 security patch for Galaxy A51. Distribution has started from some markets, including Russia and Malaysia, but should reach many other countries within a few days.
Since the usual security bulletin has not yet been released by Samsung, we do not know exactly which are the correct vulnerabilities; we will have to wait for the first days of the new year. The rollout firmware is the A515FXXU5EUL3 and is based on Android 11: Android 12 should arrive on the mid-range smartphone during the first months of 2022.

The Samsung-branded updates aren’t over yet because it’s time for the news to Samsung Galaxy A21s, Galaxy A11, Galaxy F41, And Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019). Firmware in distribution are respectively A217MUBU8CUK3, A115MUBU2BUK4, F415FXXS1BUK2, And T515XXS8CUL2 and they do not seem to bring important news if not the December 2021 security patch.
The changelogs are pretty generic and talk about general stability improvements and bug fixes. The rollout does not seem to have reached Italy yet, so we will have to wait a few more days to get our hands on the updates.
