Samsung could quicken the pace of future Android and One UI update rollouts

Reputedly, Samsung has started simplifying how it distributes software updates. To date, Samsung creates country-specific updates, identifiable by Country Specific Codes (CSC). However, GalaxyClub alleges that Samsung has begun developing a single European firmware, 'EUX', for the likes of the Galaxy Z Flip3, Galaxy Z Fold3 and the Galaxy A52 4G.

Previously, Samsung would have developed distinct firmware updates per country. Now, these smartphones should receive the same firmware across Europe, regardless of which Member State in which people purchased them. Reportedly, Samsung's initial tests have gone well, as GalaxyClub claims that Samsung hopes to harmonise its EUX development branch across Europe. Theoretically, this change would apply to the Galaxy A, Galaxy M and the Galaxy S series, including the upcoming Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+ and the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The change in development style should benefit more than just Samsung, though. Since Samsung will develop significantly fewer versions of the same firmware, it should allow the company to roll out major OS updates in a more timely manner. Additionally, adopting a unified CSC should also enable more people to test One UI beta builds.

Currently, Samsung's One UI 4 upgrade plan stretches deep into 2022. In fairness to Samsung, it was one of the first Android OEMs to begin updating devices to Android 12, as we have discussed separately. It has also committed to offering three OS updates too, matching Google and OnePlus.
