Samsung rolls out Android 10 with One UI 2.0 to the Galaxy M40
The Samsung Galaxy M40 was announced in June of 2019 and it launched with Android Pie. Today, the company started rolling out Android 10 with One UI 2.0 to the device, making it the third Galaxy M phone to receive the update.
As with the other budget phones that received One UI 2.0, this is not the full-fledged version we’ve seen on the Samsung flagship phones. Some of the more intensive features, such as the built-in screen recorder, are not included. The basic Android 10 goodies are all intact, however. The Galaxy M40 gets Google’s new navigation gestures as an option, system-wide Dark Mode, improved privacy controls, smart replies, and much more.
The update weighs in at 1.7GB and comes with version M405FDDU2BTB5. It includes the March 2020 security patches as well. You can head to Settings > Software update to check on your Galaxy M40. While it shouldn’t be a big deal to update a phone that’s not even a year old, budget phones sometimes get left by the wayside, so we’re happy to see Samsung updating another one.
