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.
