Samsung rolls out One UI 2.5 Update to the Galaxy A70s

Just a few days ago, Samsung released One UI 2.5 update for the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71. Now, last year’s A-series phone – Galaxy A70s starts receiving the One UI 2.5 update. The latest build is seeding over-the-air in India. Here’s everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy A70s One UI 2.5 Update.

The Galaxy A70s will get a slew of new features, except the Wireless DeX and enhanced Pro Video Mode feature.

In terms of changes, then the Galaxy A70s One UI 2.5 Update brings Bitmoji stickers support on AOD, Split Keyboard support for Landscape mode, Improvements to the default camera app, and a few other features along with a slew of system improvements. Not only this, but the update also bumped up the monthly security patch to October 2020 monthly security patch.

    * This feature can be turned on or off in “Network Quality Information Display” settings.

The security of your device has been improved.

As I said earlier, the airborne update starts seeding from India, the OTA might take some time to reach every device. If you’re in a haste, then you can also manually update your Galaxy A70s to the One UI 2.5 update. You can check the newer updates in Settings > Software update.

For manual upgradation, you can download the firmware manually using Frija tool, SamFirm tool, or SamMobile website. If you are using one of the tools then enter your model and country code and download the firmware. Once downloaded, you can flash the firmware using Odin Tool. Then flash the file to your device. If you want to do so, then I recommend you to take a backup prior, before diving in to the process. That’s it.
