Samsung Galaxy A03 and Galaxy F12 are the last to receive the Android 13 update
Samsung wanted to finish shipping its update to One UI 5 based on Android 13 by the end of 2022, but that seems to be too optimistic. We say this because the company continues, even today, to roll out the software to more and more devices.
In this case, the lucky ones are the Galaxy A03 and the Galaxy F12. While the rollout isn’t complete to all eligible devices just yet, we’re certainly getting closer, as these two are pretty much at all-time lows. It’s unlikely that there are many other handsets that haven’t received the update yet.
The Galaxy A03 is currently receiving the Android 13 update in Serbia. It is rolling out as firmware version A035FXXU2CVL4 and brings One UI Core 5.0 to the low-end smartphone. “Core” means that these entry-level models get a subset of the features of the higher-end models, presumably so as not to tax the hardware too much. Hopefully the update will be released in other countries soon.
The Galaxy F12, on the other hand, has always been exclusive to India. And it is therefore in India that the new firmware, version F127GXXU3CVL4, is being deployed. It comes with the November 2022 security patch level, which fixes 46 security vulnerabilities. It would probably be worth updating just for those, not to mention all the new features you get in One UI 5.0.
If you have one of these smartphones and haven’t yet been notified of an update, it might be a good idea to check manually by going to Settings > Software update > Download and install. You may just get lucky.
