Buyers of Samsung‘s brand-new premium mid-range smartphone Galaxy A54 5G will have a major software update waiting for them out of the box. The company is pushing camera improvements to the phone even before it reaches consumers globally. The device is slated to arrive in the US in April.

Galaxy A54 5G gets its first update days after the official launch

Samsung launched the Galaxy A54 5G in several markets in Europe and Asia last week. The device arrived alongside the Galaxy A34 5G as the company’s best two mid-range options this year, in that order. Now, as early buyers start receiving their orders, the Korean firm has released an update for the new handset.

As of this writing, the update is rolling out in Europe with the firmware build number A546BXXU1AWC4. First reported by GalaxyClub, the OTA package weighs around 228MB. The official changelog mentions improvements for the camera but doesn’t go into detail. It’s unclear what improvements Samsung is pushing to a phone that has been impressing reviewers with its factory-built camera performance. The Galaxy A54 5G boasts a 50MP primary camera with Optical Image Stabilization, Video Digital Image Stabilization, Nightography, and 4K video recording.

Apart from the undetailed camera improvements, this update doesn’t bring anything notable to the Galaxy A54 5G. Not even a new security patch. The device remains on the February Security Maintenance Release, which it shipped out of the box. Since it’s eligible for monthly security updates, Samsung will likely push regular patches starting in April. The Galaxy A54 5G will get four major Android OS upgrades (until Android 17) and five years of security patches. As usual, we will keep you in the loop with those releases.

As said earlier, the Galaxy A54 5G will arrive in the US in April. Samsung will start taking pre-orders for the phone stateside on March 30. General sales will commence on April 6. The handset is priced at $449.99 for the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. It’s unclear if the company will release the 8GB+256GB variant in the US. We will let you know as soon as we have more information.

Meanwhile, Galaxy A54 5G buyers in the US will likely get an update out of the box too. If you pick up this phone, you can check for new updates from the Settings app. Go to the Software update menu and tap on Download and install to check for updates manually.
