Samsung’s latest rugged smartphone, the Galaxy Xcover 6 Pro, is getting Android 13. The company has released the big Android update with its custom One Ui 5.0 software for the phone in Europe. A wider rollout is expected to follow in the coming days.
One UI 5.0 stable update based on Android 13 for the Galaxy Xcover 6 Pro comes with firmware version G736BXXU1BVK2 in Europe (via). The phone remains on the October security patch even though the November SMR (Security Maintenance Release) has been out for a while now. But the security patch is not of primary interest here. Since the device is eligible for monthly security updates, it should receive the December patch on time. Let Samsung focus on the new version of Android this time around.
Released earlier this year with Android 12 out of the box, this is the first major Android update for the Galaxy Xcover 6 Pro. And there is a lot to expect here. Samsung has subtly changed the user interface and improved the system animations with the new version. There are also several new features and improvements all around including new customization tools, OCR (optical character recognition) to extract text from images, new photo, video and editing features, improved stock apps, new gestures, and more Bixby Routines capabilities.
The latest Galaxy Xcover 6 Pro update also brings improvements to privacy and security features. So now you can get the most out of your phone while ensuring your peace of mind. The handset is already quite strong physically. With this update, you also get enhanced software security.
Galaxy Xcover 6 Pro joins Samsung’s Android party
After a slow start last month, Samsung picked up the pace with its Android 13 update last week. It released the new Android version for over a dozen Galaxy smartphone models last week, including the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4. The company started this week with updates for the Galaxy Tab S8, Galaxy Tab S8+ and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. . The Galaxy Xcover 6 Pro is also joining the party now.
If you’re using Samsung’s latest rugged smartphone, you can expect this update in the coming days. The company will release the update in batches, so not everyone will get it at once. You can check it from the Settings app or wait for a notification about the OTA (over the air) deployment. If you have a limited mobile data plan, connect your phone to an unlimited Wi-Fi network before downloading the OTA file.
