The Galaxy A53 is currently the best mid-range Samsung phone available on the market, but its maker isn’t discrimating against other models when it comes to updates. That is probably be why the Galaxy A53 5G is only getting an update with the January 2023 security patch after some of its predecessors, like the Galaxy A50, A52, and A52s 5G.

But the wait for the January security update for Galaxy A53 owners should finally be over. The device is getting a new update with firmware version A536EXXS4BWA4 in a few countries, including Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia, and it is likely to get the same update in other markets in the coming weeks.

As mentioned in the title, the Galaxy A53’s newest update includes the January 2023 security patch. Sadly, that’s it for what’s new with the update. It means that if you continue to face some bugs and issues after installing Android 13, this update probably won’t fix any of them (though to be fair, Android 13 and One UI 5.0 have been surprisngly stable since day one).

Still, as it stands, many owners, assuming they care, will be happy they received the January security patch before the month ended. If you own a Galaxy A53 (with model number SM-A536E), you should head into the phone’s Settings » Software update menu and tap the Download and install button.

Alternatively, you can download the latest Galaxy A53 firmware for your country from our archive and install it on the phone using a Windows PC.

Android 13 is just the beginning of updates for the Galaxy A53

The next meaningful update for the Galaxy A53 is likely to be One UI 5.1. And since Samsung has promised four OS upgrades for it, there are now three big updates remaining and the Galaxy A53 will go all the way up to Android 16 (and One UI 8, or whatever Samsung’s custom software is called at the time).

And when future Android OS and One UI updates arrive, we hope Samsung will do as thorough a job as it did with Android 13 and will fix any glaring bugs in the very first Android 14/15/16 firmware before releasing it to customers.
