Galaxy A40s is the latest Samsung phone to get Android 10 update

Samsung has released the Android 10 update for yet another mid-range smartphone, following the release of the update for the Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M30 in India last month. Android 10 is rolling out for the Galaxy A40s in China and Hong Kong today; this is the third non-flagship Galaxy phone to be getting One UI 2.0 and the sixth overall when considering the Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 9.

The Galaxy A40s wasn’t launched as widely as most other 2019 Galaxy A series phones, and that is probably why Samsung has been able to release Android 10 for it so quickly. It remains to be seen which budget/mid-range phone will get the update next. It’s likely to be the Galaxy A30, which is slated to receive Android 10 in markets such as India in February according to Samsung’s official roadmap.

The Android 10 firmware for the Galaxy A40s for China and Hong Kong can be downloaded from our firmware archive here. It should also be rolling out over the air, so if you own the device in either of those countries, you can try downloading it by tapping the Download and install option in the Settings » Software update menu of the phone’s settings.

To see what Android 10 and One UI 2.0 bring to your phone, you can check out the video below and read through our One UI 2.0 feature focus series. Keep in mind that not all features are likely to be included in the update for the Galaxy A40s and other budget/mid-range phones, although you can expect to see all of the user interface improvements and changes that One UI 2.0 brings over One UI 1.0/1.1.

  • Model: SM-A3050
  • Dimensions: 159.0 x 75.1 x 8.5mm
  • Display: 6.4" (162.0mm) Super AMOLED
  • CPU: Exynos 7904
  • Camera: 13 MP, CMOS F1.9 & 5.0MP, CMOS F2.2 & 5.0MP, CMOS F2.2

I compared my phone’s UI to my friend who uses an a30(i use an a40s btw) and there is a huge difference in both, i do not have most of the features that are on his phone including the Always On Display and the Media and devices tab on the notifications panel, and a lot of other features, even though mine is a higher end device than his and costed more when purchasing. Do guys have any idea of what’s going on and/or how to fix this?

Is the Galaxy A30 the same as Galaxy A40s?

According to Samsung SM-A3050 is the A40s, but right now there are firmwares everywhere refering to it as the A30.

A clashing in the model naming or what?

The article also said that this phone wasn’t launched in most of the markets, so this is the reason they can get the update faster
