Samsung Galaxy A20 Android 10 (One UI 2.0) update in India brings in VoWiFi (WiFi calling) support

Samsung rolled out the April 2020 security patch to the Galaxy A20 in India a few days ago but to many people’s surprise, the firmware was still based on Android 9 Pie.

Of course, this isn’t what you expect when others using the same device received their One UI 2.0 update based on Android 10 OS over a month before.

The Galaxy A20 Android 10 update was first released in late April, but it is only now that folks in India can get on board. The same April security patch that rolled out a few days ago is included, which is a little strange considering some Sammy devices already got June patches.
