The company claims that it has improved the camera performance through better autofocus and auto exposure. Accessing smart home device controls has become easier.
If you are a Galaxy M01s user in India, you can either wait for the OTA update or check for it manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also flash the newest firmware manually after downloading it from our firmware database, but the process only works if you have a Windows PC.
