Samsung Galaxy M31 gets new update in India
Almost two months ago, we reported that Samsung’s latest update for the Galaxy M31 at the time had bricked some units sold in India. Samsung later pulled that update from the air and recommended that users manually flash firmware on their device to get it working again.
Now, the company has released a new software update for the Galaxy M31 in India, one that will hopefully not cause any trouble for owners of the value-for-money budget smartphone. The update comes carrying firmware version M315FXXU1ATD5. It has already been available in other markets since early May so it should work without issues, though we would still recommend backing up your data using Samsung Smart Switch before installing the update.
The changelog is generic and mentions device stability, performance and feature enhancements, which is to say it doesn’t tell us anything useful. The security patch remains unchanged as well – you get security fixes included in the April security patch, not the May patch that has been released for multiple Galaxy devices in recent days.
You can download the 395 MB update over-the-air by tapping the Download and install button in the phone’s Settings » Software update menu. Our firmware archive will also have the latest Galaxy M31 firmware for India available for download in the near future so you can manually upgrade your phone to the new software.
