[Live in Germany] Samsung Galaxy M30s Android 10/One UI 2.0 update rolling out in India

This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (published on March 16) follows:

A new update is rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy M30s in India and it brings the latest One UI 2.0 skin based on Android 10 OS to the handset.

The update comes a few hours after reports of the Galaxy A40 and Galaxy A50 Android 10 update also started doing rounds in India, suggesting that Samsung could be on yet another spree of rolling out One UI 2.0 updates to its budget devices.

The Galaxy M30s Android 10 update is arriving over the air, just like others that have received the new OS. Below is a user-shared screenshot of the update on their M30s unit with model number SM-M307F. The other variant has model number SM-M307FN.

Coming in with software version M307FXXU2BTC6 and weighing in at a little over 1.4GB, the firmware stays on the same March 2020 security patch that rolled out several days ago.

Samsung hasn’t updated the official software update tracker with details of the latest Galaxy M30s Android 10 update, but it should do so pretty soon now that we have evidence of the actual rollout of the software.

The update to Android 10 is rolling out over the air, meaning some owners of the Galaxy M30s will receive the download notification ahead of others. This shouldn’t freak you out because the update will land on your device sooner or later. Check out the changelog below:
