Earlier Samsung takes a hell lot of time for updating its smartphones into the latest Android version. But now Samsung provides faster updates to its smartphones. Earlier with OneUI 2.0, Samsung updated all their flagships into Android 10. Later the brand started rolling out an update on their “M” series smartphone. The brand will be pushing the update soon to other “M” series smartphones and in “A” series too. Back in December, the Galaxy M20 and M30 started receiving OneUi 2.0 through OTA in India. A few days ago, the Galaxy M30s running on Android 10 was spotted in receiving a new Wi-Fi certification at the Wi-Fi alliance. Samsung will soon push its OneUi 2.0 to the Galaxy A60 and M40 as both the devices have appeared in the Wi-Fi alliance.
The Android 10 update for the Galaxy A60 was scheduled for April 2020 and the Galaxy M40, it was scheduled for March 2020. Even though both the Galaxy A60 and Galaxy M40 has almost similar specifications except for the battery and one of the sensors in the triple rear camera setup was scheduled for Android 10 update in a month difference. What we can understand from here is the time relating to certification and other legal issues and mainly the effort to bring the software.
As we said above, both the handsets were spotted at the Wi-Fi Alliance, and they got it certified with Android 10 on top. Usually, Wi-Fi certifications are the best clue when a smartphone gets released and gets updated. We expect the Samsung Galaxy A60 and Galaxy M40 to receive the update soon.
