Galaxy M40 update brings QR scanner, Night mode, August security patch

A new Galaxy M40 software update is rolling out in India today, bringing the latest security patch to the device along with the QR scanner feature and a dedicated Night mode for the camera. The update comes with software version M405FDDU1ASH1 and is available over the air as a 366 MB download.

The Galaxy M40 is one of many Galaxy devices that have received a dedicated QR scanner through a software update. It will now scan QR codes whenever the camera is pointed at them, removing the need for installing third-party QR scanning apps. M40 owners will find the feature even more useful since the M40 doesn’t support Bixby Vision, which is what provided QR scanning capability out of the box on other Galaxy phones that have received the QR scanner feature.
