2.5-year-old Samsung Galaxy A11 gets Android 12
Samsung introduced the Galaxy A11 back in May 2020 with an entry-level Snapdragon 450 chipset and a basic 6.4” HD+ display. The device received Android 11 last year and now it gets Android 12.
The package comes with firmware version A115FXXU3CVI3 and also brings a security patch dated August 2022 that addresses “dozens of privacy and security vulnerabilities”.
Android 12 in the Galaxy A11 has One UI Core 4.1 on top. This means the phone will get the color palette feature, improved widgets and the way a user can select them. The audio output device can now be selected via the lock screen, and Dark Mode comes with minor improvements.
All the standard apps on the Galaxy A11 have been improved – the camera app has a cleaner design, the Gallery comes with better sorting, the Samsung Keyboard gets support for Grammarly, and the share menu has been fixed.
The update is currently hitting devices in Southeast Asia, but it will hit other versions soon. It can also be found under Settings -> Software Update and then Download and Install.
