As part of its Unpacked 2022 event, Samsung will apparently not only respond to new smartphones. Apparently some things are also to change for the software infrastructure of the company. This could especially benefit users in Europe. According to new information Samsung updates then no longer rolled out country-specifically, but simultaneously for all EU countries. This could also affect the speed of updates.
Faster Samsung updates ahead?
In the past, firmware updates from Samsung could be assigned using specific country codes (CSC). The software could be assigned to Germany using the abbreviation DBT. But now it seems as if these country-specific labels are going away – at least in large parts of Europe. With newer Samsung updates, they are replaced by the abbreviation EUX, as reported by Galaxy Club.
Samsung has already used the new update process for the Galaxy Z Flip 3, the Z Fold 3 and the 4G version of the Galaxy A52. These smartphones are no longer updated from country to country, but are provided with EUX-wide Samsung updates. This also applies to the newer margins of the Galaxy S21 FE.
The firmware for the following devices is also affected by the change:
- Samsung Galaxy S22 (Plus, Ultra)
- Samsung Galaxy A53
- Samsung Galaxy A33
- Samsung Galaxy A13
Since the firmware is no longer split into parts, Samsung could significantly speed up the update process with the CSC EUX.
New hardware from Samsung
The public’s interest is currently elsewhere. All technical data of the Samsung Galaxy S22 series are now known. In addition, there are the first surprising pictures of the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G. Samsung plans to present all of these models as part of its Unpacked 2022 event in February.
