Samsung introduces One UI 5.0/Android 13 update for Galaxy A71 5G. The phone came out with Android 10 in early 2020, got One UI 3.0/Android 11 in early 2021, then got One UI 4.1/Android 12 in March (it skipped One UI 4.0). Now onto another major release of Samsung software and the latest Android features.
