Android 13 is rolling out to Samsung’s Galaxy A03s in the US

Android 13 is here for Samsung’s Galaxy A03s in the US. The company is currently pushing the major Android update to the carrier-locked variants of the phone. Users with factory unlocked units should get it soon too. The budget device has already received Android 13 in most international markets.

Samsung rolls out the Android 13 update for the carrier-locked variants of the Galaxy A03s in the US with the firmware build number A037USQU3CWB6. SamMobile first reported on this rollout, but it’s unclear whether the handset will pick up One UI Core 5.0 or One UI Core 5.1.

The former is more likely as all other Galaxy devices received Android 13 with One UI 5.0 or the Core version. That said, Android 12 for the Galaxy A03s in the US came with One UI Core 4.1, so you never know.

Nevertheless, this update brings a lot of changes to your Samsung smartphone. The company has tweaked the user interface, improved app icons, and made system animations smoother.

You will also find new features in Camera, Samsung Internet, AR Emoji, Gallery, Samsung Keyboard, Settings, Quick Settings, Notifications, Samsung Notes and more. There are also improvements to privacy, security, and accessibility. Overall, your Galaxy A03s offers a brand new experience after installing Android 13.

Galaxy A03s gets its last major Android update in the US

In addition to all these goodies, the Galaxy A03s also gets several vulnerability patches with this update. Samsung isn’t pushing the latest security release to the phone, but the December 2022 patch is also an upgrade from the November release it got with the latest update in January.

If you’re using this phone in the US, watch out for a notification asking you to download the latest version. At the time of writing, Android 13 is rolling out to Galaxy A03s users on T-Mobile and Metro networks. Others should join the party soon.

If you don’t receive a notification, you can manually check for updates through the Settings app. Open the app, go to the Software Update section and tap Download and Install. If an update is available, you will be prompted to download it.

But if the phone does not find any updates then wait a few more days and check again. Since it’s a major update, the OTA (over that air) package will be huge. It is advisable to download it via Wi-Fi instead of mobile data. Note: The Galaxy A03s will not receive Android 14. This is the last major Android update for the phone.
