Another Galaxy smartphone is now making the leap to Android 10 and One UI 2.0. The Galaxy M40 receives the Android 10 update in India today – the third device in Samsung’s line of low-budget Galaxy M smartphones to receive the update. The update is delivered with the software version M405FDDU2BTB5 and includes the March 2020 security patch.
Like the other M-series phones, the M40 gets One UI Core 2.0 instead of the full-fledged version of One UI 2.0, which means it will miss some sophisticated features like the built-in screen recorder. However, all of the basic functionality of Android 10 should be integrated. There are improved privacy and location controls, choice of Google and Samsung navigation gestures, best dark mode (old night mode), smart responses, improved digital well-being, and more. The user interface also receives numerous tweaks, many of which are detailed here.
Galaxy M40 can grab 1.7GB update over the phone Settings »Software update menu. We also have the Android 10 firmware for the device available in our firmware archive, which can be used to update it manually using a Windows PC. The update should also be available via Samsung’s Smart Switch software for Windows and Mac.
