One UI 5.0/Android 13 arrives on Samsung Galaxy A71 5G, Galaxy S10 Lite and Tab S7 FE
Samsung is rolling out the One UI 5.0/Android 13 update to the Galaxy A71 5G. The phone came out in early 2020 with Android 10, got One UI 3.0/Android 11 in early 2021, then One UI 4.1/Android 12 in March (it skipped One UI 4.0). Now on to another major version of Samsung’s software and the latest Android features.
Galaxy A71 5G receives firmware with version A716BXXU6EVL2 and it looks like the UAE is the first country to get it, but it’s only the preliminary rollout, the update should expand to Europe and Asia in the coming days.
The update includes new versions of Samsung’s key apps, including the camera, gallery and keyboard (which now has the ability to scan text from an image and hide it into something you can copy). There are also fun additions like new AR emojis, emoji pairs and kaomojis.
Some changes to the menus include adding connected devices and merging the Security and Privacy pages. Speaking of which, the update also includes the December 2022 security patch.
Incidentally, the 4G version of the Galaxy A71 went up to Android 13 in November. The related Galaxy A51 5G jumped aboard the Android 13 train yesterday.
Similar to the A71, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is from early 2020 and launched with Android 10/One UI 2.0. It is now being updated to One UI 5.0/Android 13 – check for firmware version G770FXXU6HVK5. It includes the legacy security patch from November 2022. The rollout has started with unlocked and Vodafone-branded phones in the Netherlands.
