Samsung earlier this year unveiled a new series of Galaxy A devices and truth be told, the new family has some great propositions. Recently, the company has been expanding this portfolio with variants of the OG models.

The Korean company recently unveiled the Galaxy A50s, a souped-up version of the Galaxy A50 that came out earlier this year. The A50s is a looker thanks to the prism-like lines on the glass back complemented by the metallic frame and thin bezels.

It’s easy to mistake the Galaxy A50 for the A50s and vice-versa by simply looking at them thanks to the same design language, a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display panel and a triple-lens camera on the back. However, the two are slightly different on the inside.

Not long ago, the standard Galaxy A50 started receiving the October 2019 security patch in some markets, the first device to get this update, even ahead of the Google Pixels. Today, the newer Galaxy A50s is also receiving an update of its own, but it’s not the latest patch.

As you can see from the screengrab above, the software update with version A507FNXXU1ASI4 carries September 2019 security patches, however, the device’s software update tracker says otherwise – that the ASI4 build is still based on August patches like the previous build ASI2.

Besides the Galaxy A50s, last month’s security updates are also rolling out to the Galaxy A10s, Galaxy A10e, and the Galaxy A5 2016. It’s a rare update for the Galaxy A5 2016, but unfortunately, it has only been spotted on the Chinese variant arriving as version A5108ZMS4CSI1.

On the Galaxy A10s, the September patch is arriving as version A107MUBS3ASI1 and so far, the rollout is ongoing in South American countries like Chile and Colombia, among others.

For those who own the Galaxy A10e, the same September security update is coming in as version A102USQU2ASI1. The update is heading to U.S. variants of the A10e and has the same changelog as the version that recently went out to Verizon’s A10e.

It’s a significant update for the Galaxy A10e considering that it bumps the security patch level from June 2019 to September 2019, so be sure to grab it once the download notification shows up on your phone.

Speaking of download notifications, all phones are receiving the update over the air. Granted, it will take some time before all units get the download notification, so be sure to stay patient as you wait.

Alternatively, you can try forcing the OTA on your device by heading to the Settings menu > Software update section and then download and install the update manually.

Tech has been my playground for over a decade. While the Android journey began early, it truly took flight with the revolutionary Lollipop update. Since then, it's been a parade of Android devices (with a sprinkle of iOS), culminating in a mostly happy marriage with Google's smart home ecosystem. Expect insightful articles and explorations of the ever-evolving world of Android and Google products coupled with occasional rants on the Nest smart home ecosystem.
