Samsung Galaxy A13 4G and A13 5G models receive mention-worthy software updates carrying firmware A135FXXU4CWE5 and A136BXXS4CWE1, respectively. Their highlighting appeal is the much-anticipated May 2023 security patch, addressing over 70 security vulnerabilities and fortifying the devices against malicious threats.

The latest update for the 4G A13 is cycling through Germany, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine, while the Galaxy A13 5G update has already debuted in Thailand. Other countries, including Pakistan, should receive this update shortly. Upon availability, your Galaxy A13 will send you an alert.
