Samsung recently announced that the Galaxy M30 will receive Android Pie update next month. But it seems that Samsung has moved ahead in schedule and has already started introducing Android Pie updates for the Galaxy M30 in India. In addition to upgrading the Android version, OTA also brings a May 2010 security patch and an UI that brings a ton of change. There are several new features, such as the camera's camera optimizer, the editing tools in the gallery app, and the reorganized settings menu so that we can name a few. Android Pie update is now available to Galaxy M30 users in India.
The new Galaxy M30 (Overview), which has the M305FDDU1BSEA / M305FODM1BSEA / M305FDDU1BSE6 firmware version, is 1144.35 MB in size and is available to all Galaxy M30 users in India. As mentioned, the biggest change brought by the upgrade is the jump from Samsung's v9.5-based experience to Android 8.1 Oreo on a more polished UI v1.1 based on Android Pie. The introduction of the update began via a stable channel about a week earlier than Samsung promised.
Talking about interface changes, one interface moves interactive elements to the bottom of the screen and introduces a nightmare for a more enjoyable viewing experience. It also adds new notification control features such as the ability to reply to messages directly from notification boards and image thumbnails in notifications.
Adaptive themes and new emoji for the Samsung keyboard have come as well, with floating keyboards. The Galaxy M30 app has received a new scene optimizer to automatically adjust the color settings while adding multiple editing tools to the Gallery app. The update also removes pre-installed applications such as LinkedIn and Mobile Office and supports the High-Efficiency Image File (HEIF) image format support.
