Earlier this year, Samsung introduced the all-new Galaxy M-series by launching the Galaxy M10, Galaxy M20, and Galaxy M30 smartphones. While the newly launched Galaxy A smartphones came with Android 9.0 Pie-based One UI, the Galaxy M smartphones were launched with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. The upcoming Galaxy M40 will become the first ever Galaxy M smartphone to run on Android 9.0 Pie-based One UI out of the box. However, the company has started rolling out the One UI update for the Galaxy M30 smartphones.
The Galaxy M10 and M20 will also receive the One UI update in the coming weeks. Talking about the new OTA update for the Galaxy M30 smartphone, it updates the device to Android 9.0 Pie and the Samsung Experience 9.5 will be replaced with the all-new One UI. It has the build number M305FDDU1BSEA and comes in 1144.25MB size. Since the update will be rolled out incrementally, not all the Galaxy M30 smartphones will be receiving the OTA update right now.
Once the device is updated to Android 9.0 Pie, the user has to manually update the Samsung apps like Calculator, Samsung Internet, Samsung Health, Samsung Notes, Samsung Members, and Samsung Pay. While there is no Dark Mode, the new update at least brings the Night Mode. The whole settings menu is reorganized to easily discover the required settings. In the camera department, this new update adds Scene optimizer to automatically enhances the camera’s color settings to fit the scene.
The company also added the photo editing tools right inside the Gallery app. While the Linkedin and Mobile Office apps are removed, the new update adds the Amazon Prime video app. The update also discontinues the Call stickers. With the latest One UI update, the users can directly reply to the messages from the notification panel. The image thumbnails will also be shown in the message notifications. This new update also makes it easy to turn on or off all the notification in a category.
The Samsung Keyboard now supports new Unicode 11.0 emojis. It also comes with an adaptive theme which changes the keyboard look based on the colors of the app. Also, the new Android 9.0 Pie build brings the May security patch update. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
