[Updated] Samsung Galaxy J6 & Galaxy A60 Android 10 (One UI 2.0) update starts rolling out with March security patch
This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..
Original story (published on April 8) follows:
In the past few weeks, we have seen a number of devices from various OEMs bag the Android 10 update. These have got to be some of the last devices in their respective OEM Android 10 roadmaps as Android 10 has been out since September.
We will continue to see more and more devices getting updated in the course of the second quarter of 2020 so keep that in mind. True to its course, Samsung is today rolling out Android 10 to two of its devices.
The Samsung Galaxy J6 was first unveiled in 2018, running Android 8 Oreo. Since then, the device has been updated regularly with monthly security patches and one OS upgrade so it currently runs on Android 9 Pie.
Reports have surfaced that Samsung is currently rolling out Android 10 to this device.
This being an entire Operating System upgrade, the changelog is rather extensive. This is because this phone is now getting One UI 2 features, all in one single update.
Also important to note is that, this update also carries with it the March 2020 Android security patch level. This comes at a time when some devices have already been updated to the April 2020 Android security patch level but I am sure Galaxy J6 users are too excited about this Android 10 build to fuss about that.
Another device that is getting updated to Android 10-based One UI 2.0 is the Samsung Galaxy A60.
The update which is rolling out to the Galaxy A60 with model number A6060 also packs the March 2020 Android security patch level. As this is an OTA, it might take a while before it is widely available to all devices. However, as a start, the update has been spotted in a few regions including South Korea and China.
It is refreshing to see some aspects of the economy and the smartphone industry are not slowing down, even during the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic that is ravaging many parts of the world.
