Samsung has started rolling out One UI 2.5 update to the Galaxy A50 and A90 smartphones. The update comes with a firmware number A505FDDU5BTL1 for the Galaxy A50, while the Galaxy A90 has A908NKSU3CTL3A.
Both firmwares hit the smartphones with the latest December security patch from Google. The One UI 2.5 update brings SOS location-sharing messages every 30 minutes, supports Bitmoji stickers on always-on display, and the YouTube search option on the keyboard. Further, it improves the camera and added a button in Wi-Fi to request a Wi-Fi password.
Aside these features, the One UI 2.5 brings Dex function to the Galaxy A90 5G. Although this is missing from the Galaxy A50 smartphone, all other features are similar. Check out the changelog below;
