Update Procedure

Users familiar with the Galaxy A22 update process can access it via Settings » Software update » Download and install. Alternatively, the new firmware can be obtained from Samsung’s database and installed using Odin. Given the phased rollout approach, the update may reach different user groups at varying times.

Continued Support and Future Considerations

Following the fulfillment of its promise to deliver three new versions of Android, Samsung ceased major OS upgrades for the Galaxy A22 last year. However, the device will continue to receive security updates until the coming year. For users contemplating an upgrade, the Galaxy A35 presents itself as a suitable option. Alternatively, those with a more substantial budget may explore the Galaxy S23 FE or the Galaxy S24 Ultra for enhanced features and capabilities.
