Samsung Galaxy M22 Receives Android 12 update

Even while Samsung is getting better at updating its devices to the latest Android versions, the process takes a long time because of the sheer number of new devices it launches each year, which means it can take months or even years to get the latest updates.

Given that Samsung’s Galaxy M22 was released in October of 2021 (when Android 12 was already official), it’s remarkable that the device is finally receiving Android 12 with One UI 4.1 as part of its software update cycle. So at least it has the most recent version of Samsung’s skin. It also has the April 2022 security patch, which isn’t current anymore, but for a low-end device, we’ll be okay with it.

Samsung Galaxy M22 receives Android 12 update with One UI 4.1

Due to its inexpensive internals, the Galaxy M22 runs the Core version of One UI, which means that some of the functionality available on higher-end devices is unavailable. You may not have noticed, but this has been the case since it started.

The Android 12 update has the build number M225FVXXU4BFD8 in Saudi Arabia and the UAE, the only two countries where it is currently rolling out. Hopefully, the new software will become more popular soon.
