Furthermore, the Samsung Galaxy M01s update brings lock screen widgets, dynamic lock screen categories, and image and video call backgrounds along with a double-tap gesture to lock the screen. Samsung has reportedly also updated all its stock apps such as the Samsung Gallery, Samsung Internet, Samsung Keyboard, and Samsung Messages. The camera has also received improved autofocus and auto exposure. The Samsung Galaxy M01s update is said to make it easier to access smart home device controls.
The firmware version of the update is said to be M017FXXU2CUG1 and, as mentioned, it comes with the June 2021 Android security patch. The size of the update is not known as of now.
It is recommended to update your Samsung Galaxy M01s smartphone while it is connected to a strong Wi-Fi and is on charging. The over-the-air update should reach all eligible devices automatically, but keen users can manually check for the update by heading to Settings > Software update > Download and install.
