While residing on the more budget-friendly end of the smartphone spectrum, the Samsung Galaxy A03 Core has often lagged behind its pricier counterparts when it comes to software updates. However, breaking its trend of delayed updates, Samsung is now rolling out the Android 13 Go update for the A03 Core.
Previously, the A03 Core had been running on Android 12 Go, while its siblings enjoyed the benefits of Android 13. With the new firmware version A032FXXU4CWI8, the Galaxy A03 Core is embracing Android 13 Go, dressed in the One UI 5.1 Core interface.
This update not only brings the latest Android version but also includes the security patch for September 2023, enhancing the device’s protection against cybersecurity threats. The initial release of this update is in Russia, but it’s anticipated to become available globally, including in Pakistan.
For A03 Core users in Russia, the wait is finally over, while those in Pakistan may need to exercise patience a little longer. To check for the update, users can navigate to “Settings” » “Software update” and select “Download and Install.” Alternatively, they can wait for a pop-up notification to inform them of its availability, which should be coming to all devices in due time.
Beyond just an upgrade in numbers, this update introduces some noteworthy features. The “Google Play System Updates” feature now allows Google to deliver fresh offerings alongside full OS updates. Additionally, users can expect a touch of aesthetics with a Material You-influenced Color Palette and a smoother user interface as part of the package.
As for the full list of tweaks and additions, Samsung has kept much of it under wraps, providing only hints in their official release notes. It’s advisable for users to read through the terms and conditions and review the release notes before committing to the update.
This update marks a positive development for Samsung Galaxy A03 Core users, offering both the latest Android features and improved security, even for those on a budget.
