Samsung delivers One UI 5.1 update to the Galaxy A53 5G and A33 5G in South Korea
Last week, Samsung detailed the global One UI 5.1 rollout plan for its premium phones. The company’s mid-range offering is also starting the transition to version 5.1 of Samsung UI. The first to get it are Galaxy A33 5G and Galaxy A53 5G devices in South Korea with firmware versions A336NKSU3CWB3 and A536NKSU4CWB3 respectively.
The pair received One UI 5.0 with the Android 13 update in November. This new update brings the version of One UI that was introduced with the launch of the Galaxy S23 series this month.

Note: The Galaxy A73 is not available in South Korea, so we haven’t heard anything about its update yet. Samsung has not officially announced when the rollout will expand to new regions. The A33, A53 and A73 were unveiled last March with Android 12 and One UI 4.1.
Anyway, in addition to the new One UI 5.1 goodies, the new software version also includes the February 2023 security patch.
This is a hefty update weighing in at 1.4GB for the Galaxy A53, so you should connect to Wi-Fi and ensure you have enough juice in your battery before starting the download.
