Highlights:

  • Samsung Galaxy M20(₹ 9999 at amazon) now receiving a new software update. 
  • The update brings the March Android security patch and adds stability to the phone’s camera.
  • Unfortunately, Samsung is pushing the Amazon Shopping app with the update.

 


The Samsung Galaxy M20 is one of the many mid-range phones that the company offers in India. It was launched in late January and received the first update on the day it went on sale in the country. The smartphone maker is now pushing out a new update for the device that, while improving the stability and security of the handset, increases bloatware by adding the Amazon Shopping app. There is no change to the Android version as it doesn’t bring the Pie update to the phone. The new patch is around 368MB in size and, as mentioned, brings stability to the phone, more specifically, in the camera department. However, there are no details on what exactly the patch does to improve the Galaxy M20’s camera stability. 

Additionally, the phone’s security patch is now updated to March, 2019. Google is yet to publish what new fixes this month’s security patch brings. The M20 is one of the first handset to be updated with the new security patch. As mentioned earlier, the update also adds the Amazon Shopping app to the handset, which can be considered bloatware since not all users might want to install the app or shop from Amazon.in. However, the app is not integrated as a system app and can be uninstalled if required. The notification for updating the phone should pop up automatically by default but one can also check for it by heading over to the Software Update tab in Settings and tapping on the Download Updates Manually option. 

As for the specifications, the handset is powered by the Exynos 7904 SoC and comes in 3GB/4GB RAM variants. It features a 6.3-inch full-HD+ Infinity-V display and sports a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. There are 32GB and 64GB of internal storage options on the device with the option of expanding it to 512GB using a microSD card. The Galaxy M30 sports a dual 13MP + 5MP camera setup on the back and comes equipped with an 8MP sensor on the front. The phone is backed by a 5,000mAh battery and runs Android 8.1 Oreo, which is based on Samsung Experience 9.5 UX.
