In December 2019, the company also announced its successor, Galaxy A51. Samsung has both budget and premium smartphones in its Galaxy series.

Samsung launched its new customized UI known as One UI, and they first implemented their first version with Android 9 Pie.

The Galaxy A50 is the first device in the A50 series and was launched with Android 9 Pie and One UI on top. Later, it was updated to Android 10 with One UI 2.0. Since the device had one major OS upgrade from Android 9 to Android 10 it still has one major OS upgrade left.

For a premium experience, it has the latest One UI 2.0 based on Android 10. Like A50, this device has also exhausted only one quota of major OS upgrades and still has one quota left.
