We have great news for Galaxy A40 owners who have been anticipating the launch of One UI 3, as Samsung is now rolling out the Android 11-based firmware update for the Galaxy A40 in Europe. More specifically, the firmware began rolling out for the Galaxy A40 (SM-A405FN) at Vodafone Germany over the weekend, and it brings the March 2021 security patch along.

The highlight of the update is, of course, One UI 3 and the new visual / UI changes it introduces, though Galaxy A40 owners shouldn’t expect every One UI 3 feature to be included. Similar to the Android 11 update for the Galaxy A50, the firmware is expected to improve camera autofocus, add more lock screen and AoD options, additional Bixby Routines and more.

The latest update for the Galaxy A40 bears firmware versionĀ A405FNXXU3CUC2. As of this writing, the update is available only for the Galaxy A40 offered by Vodafone Germany, though its release indicates that it could soon be rolled out for the Galaxy A40 in other countries, at least where the device was sold by Vodafone.

If you happen to own the Galaxy A40, you can verify if the update is available for you to download by opening the Settings app and tapping Download and install in the Software update section. SamMobile readers can also download the firmware from our archive with no strings attached and install the firmware to their phones using a Windows PC and Odin.
