Android 9.0 Pie update slated for Samsung Galaxy M smartphones early next month

Towards the start of this year, Samsung launched the Galaxy M10 and M20 smartphones in India having been "inspired by millennials", featuring the company's Infinity-V displays, and in the case of the M20, a rather generous 5,000mAh battery capacity. However, these handsets, in addition to the M30, shipped with Android 8.0 Oreo rather than Android 9.0 Pie, leaving users one version behind.

Now, it appears that users can look forward to Pie in the near future, with an over-the-air (OTA) update slated for release on June 3. The update will also include One UI, Samsung's take on a minimalistic user interface experience, supplanting the previous "Samsung Experience" which had itself replaced TouchWiz. The refreshed interface has already found its way to a plethora of other smartphones in the Samsung stable, including the Galaxy S9 and S9+, in addition to the Galaxy Note8 and Note9. One UI is also expected to improve performance on Galaxy M handsets.

The news may be welcomed by users, as Samsung had previously indicated that the operating system and user interface updates would be made available in August 2019. This would see the update's release take place two months ahead of schedule.
