More than a year after its launch, the handset has started receiving its first major update.

According to a report by SamMobile, Galaxy A01, an entry-level Samsung smartphone has begun to receive its firm-ever major system update in the form of One UI Core 3.1 based on Android 11. The device was expected to get the update in May or later, however, the company is rolling it out earlier.

Currently, the South Korean tech giant is seeding this update in Russia with firmware version A015FXXU4BUD8. Apart from bringing the Android 11 features and a select few new One UI features, the new build also features April 2021 security patches.

Users of this phone in Russia can head over to Settings > Software update > Download and install to check whether their unit has got the OTA update. If not, they will have to wait a bit further because it is being rolled out in batches.

We can expect Samsung to seed this update in other regions in the coming days. Since the Galaxy A01 is an entry-level smartphone, it is not sure if it will be receiving the Android 12 update in the future. However, we can expect security patches for a while.
