Samsung Galaxy M10 and Samsung Galaxy M20 were launched in India just earlier this week, and now the two phones have already received a software update. The phones are set to go on sale from February 5, but ahead of that, the few review units out in the market have received an update. The update brings under the hood improvements, and comes with firmware version M105FDDU1ASA7 for the Samsung Galaxy M10 and firmware version M205FDDU1ASA9 for the Samsung Galaxy M20 smartphones.
SamMobile was the first to spot these updates, and claims that these are minor updates with under-the-hood improvements. We were able to spot the updates on our review units as well. It includes the January security patch as well, but this was already available in the previous firmware. This update should be installed on consumer-bought phones out-of-the-box, the report claims. The update size is 102MB for the Samsung Galaxy M20 and 64.74MB for the Samsung Galaxy M10.
