Samsung Galaxy A30s starts getting Android 10 update
South Korean tech giant, Samsung, has been quite good with updates this year. And now, the phone maker is rolling out an update for its mid-ranger, the Galaxy A30s which was originally launched with Android 9.
With the update in tow, the smartphone will now come running the Android 10 with the latest OneUI 2.0. The update is being shared with users over the air (OTA) and should reach users over the next few days.
The update was first spotted by SamMobile, which first reported that the phone has started getting a software update with firmware version A307FNXXU2BTD1. The update, the publication revealed, started rolling out to users last week.
With the new software, the phone gets Samsung’s OneUI 2 and also gets updated to the March 2020 security patch. The report also states that the update has gone live in Afghanistan, Iraq, Laos, Libya, Philippines, Malaysia, Russia, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, and the UAE. However, there is no information about India at the moment.
As the report reveals, the update is quite bulky in size, and is around 1.5GB — possibly because it brings new features from One UI 2,0 to the Galaxy A30s.
To remind our readers, the Galaxy A30s sports a 6.4-inch HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-V. The resolution has been downgraded from FHD+ on the Galaxy A30. Much like the A50s, the Galaxy A30s also comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor. It is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7904 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage with storage expandability support up to 512GB via microSD card.
The triple camera setup on the back has been upgraded to offer a 25-megapixel f/1.7 main camera, 5-megapixel depth sensor and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. Like the A50s, the A30s also houses a 4,000mAh battery and supports 15W fast charging over Type-C. The Galaxy A30s and A50s come with a diagonal pattern design ona glossy rear panel. The A30s will be available in Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush White and Prism Crush Violet colour options.
