The Galaxy A50 hasn’t been selling in the country for a long time, but the device is receiving its second software update. Samsung is also rolling out essential updates to the Galaxy Buds and the budget Galaxy J2 Core.
It’s a huge update with plenty of additions for the Galaxy A50. The update is arriving as version A505FDDU1ASD6 and besides April 2019 security patch, it also tags along the following changes:
- 68-degree angle of view is now available in the selfie camera
- Adds Live Focus affect (Gallery: Spin, Zoom, Colorpoint)
- Adds Beauty Video Mode to both the front and main cameras
- Adds Bixby routines
- Adds Call and Message Continuity feature
- Improves performance of the fingerprint scanner
- Improves overall stability of functions
If you have signed into multiple Samsung devices using the same Samsung account, perhaps you’ll enjoy the newly added support for call and messaging continuity. The feature allows Galaxy A50 users to continue their calls or messaging on another device that is signed in using the same account.
The update weighs in at a little over 666MB, so be sure to get a stable Wi-Fi connection before attempting to download the firmware. Just so you know, the A50 has already received May 2019 security patch in other markets like India.
Also receiving a huge update is Samsung’s pair of Galaxy Buds. The wireless earphones are receiving an update with software version R170XXU0ASE1 that adds fixes to stabilize Bluetooth connection and resolves sound loss issue on one side of the buds when Ambient sound feature is enabled.
The same update, which weighs in at 1.35MB, also applies a notification alert to the Ambient sound when enabled by a long press. To get this update, be sure to pair your Galaxy Buds to your phone and grab it via the Galaxy Wearable app.
For those using Android Go-powered Galaxy J2 Core, Samsung is also rolling out a new software update to the device. The support page was updated a few days ago with firmware version J260FXXS2ASD1, which brings April 2019 security patches alongside the usual stability improvements.
