A recent update for the Galaxy A50 seems to break the fingerprint registration process on the device, despite improved fingerprint recognition being the purported benefit of the update.

There is no doubt the recent update contains a bug, causing these problems to emerge. Thankfully, this means the solution can also be brought to the phone by means of another update. It is up to Samsung to fix this bug and roll out a solution. For now, we can only advise you to keep using your old fingerprint registrations, in case you have not yet deleted those, as they seem to work fine.
