The Galaxy F62 is the latest attempt by Samsung India to stay competitive in the country’s mid-range segment, and we feel the company has mostly succeeded in that endeavor. The Galaxy F62 went on sale in India today, and at the same time, Samsung is rolling out the first software update for the device.
The first Galaxy F62 update comes with firmware version E625FDDU1AUB4. It includes the February 2021 security patch, though that’s not new as the phone comes with this month’s patch out of the box. It also runs Android 11 with One UI 3.1 out of the box, just like the Galaxy S21 series, which we found to be one of the best things about it.
The update claims to improve camera performance and stability along with overall device performance. However, we haven’t noticed any visible changes after updating our device. Specifically, it doesn’t seem to have addressed our biggest complaint about the F62, that it performs more like a mid-range phone in general UI navigation rather than a flagship one, which is not what we expected from the Exynos 9825 processor that powers it.
If you have purchased a Galaxy F62, you should be able to download the update right after the initial setup by tapping the Download and install option inside the Settings » Software update menu. You can also upgrade the phone by downloading the latest firmware from our archive and installing it using a Windows PC.
