The Galaxy A13 is the cheapest Samsung launches 5G smartphone in the US. Right now you can get one for less than $200, which was unthinkable a few years before the phone was on sale.
Originally Launched a year ago, the Galaxy A13 5G has already received an Android OS update this year and is now in the process of receiving its second, Android 13. Three weeks ago, the European version of the Galaxy A13 5G received the much-anticipated Android 13 update, and now it looks like the same is happening for US users, or at least part of them.
acc According to SamMobile’s report, at least one carrier-locked model is now eligible for the update. So if you’re not a US cell phone customer, you’ll probably have to wait a bit longer. This particular Android 13 update for the US cellular version of the Galaxy A13 5G contains the firmware version A136USQU3CVK9.
Another thing we learned is that the update includes the November 2022 security patch. Unfortunately, it’s hard to say whether or not Samsung will be expanding the update’s availability to other carriers by the end of the year. Worst-case scenario, Galaxy A13 5G users in the US should see the update on their phones early next year.
Although Samsung has already rolled out two major updates to the Android operating system Galaxy A13 5G, it’s possible that a third, Android 14, will be released later next year as the phone will only be two years old at that point.
Those who meet all the criteria to get the update can just leave Settings / Software update / Download and install, and hope Android 13 comes to their phones. Note, however, that it may take a few days to reach everyone as this is a phased rollout.
