Samsung Galaxy A70 Update in India Brings May Security Patch, Improves Camera and In-Display Fingerprint Sensor Performance

The Galaxy A70’s first software update is now being rolled out in India

Highlights
  • The Galaxy A70's first update enhances general system stability.
  • Beauty Video Mode for the rear camera arrives with the update
  • Changelog also mentions improvements to the overall camera quality

Samsung has begun the rollout of the first software update for the recently launched Galaxy A70 that brings the May Android security patch. The update also arrives with improvements to the in-display fingerprint sensor of the phone and also adds a new beautification mode for videos recorded by the rear camera. System stability of the Galaxy A70 is also claimed to have been enhanced as per the changelog, and so is the overall camera performance of the phone. The update is now being rolled out as an OTA via the stable channel and is available to users in India.

The first software update for the Galaxy A70 has the firmware version A705GMDDU1ASE4 / A705GMODM1ASE4 / A705GMDDU1ASE4 and is 376.83MB in size. We have already received the update, but in case you haven't received it yet, you can check for it by going to Settings > Software update > Download and install. The rollout of the aforesaid update for the Galaxy A70 was spotted by TizenHelp, but there is no word on the global release schedule.

Coming to the changes introduced by the feature, it upgrades the Android security patch to May level. The changelog states that the camera picture quality of the triple rear camera equipped Samsung phone has been improved and a new feature called the Beauty Video mode for the rear camera has also been added. Accidental touch protection is another feature that has arrived with the update.

The changelog also mentions that the performance of the in-display fingerprint sensor has been improved when it comes to recognition. In our Galaxy A70 review, we noticed that the in-display fingerprint sensor struggles with recognising the fingerprint pattern when the thumb is placed over the sensor at a slightly different angle, and the speed was also slower than what we have seen on a host of other phones. We tested the Galaxy A70's in-display fingerprint sensor following the update and found that the speed is still comparatively slow, but the recognition has improved slightly.
