The Samsung Galaxy M20 and the Galaxy M30 were spotted on Wi-Fi Alliance by SamMobile, running the Android 10 operating system. It suggests that the Android 10 OS based firmware for these devices is under development or testing, and the brand might roll it out in the near future.
Apart from the listing on Wi-Fi Alliance, SamMobile is confirming on its own that Samsung is developing Android 10 based firmware for the Galaxy M10 and the Galaxy M20. According to the publication, the Android 10 based firmware version for the Galaxy M20 is M205FDDU3CSK3, and that for the Galaxy M30 is M305FDDU2CSK3. Considering that the One UI 2.0 is already out, the Android 10 based firmware for these devices might be based on it.
Unfortunately, there is no concrete information regarding the timeline for the rollout of the Android 10 OS to the Galaxy M20 and the Galaxy M30. According to SamMobile, it usually takes at least three months for a software update of a Samsung smartphone to roll out after it gets certified on Wi-Fi Alliance. So, you can expect the Android 10 to hit the Galaxy M20 and the Galaxy M30 in the first quarter of 2020.
The Samsung Galaxy M20 and the Galaxy M30 made their debut with the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. The brand later updated these devices to the Android 9 Pie OS. With the upgrade to Android 10 OS, the Galaxy M20 and the Galaxy M30 would have received a total of two Android version upgrades. That’s pretty unusual for entry-level and mid-range smartphones, as brands tend to offer only one Android version upgrade to the devices in these price ranges.
Speaking of price, the Samsung Galaxy M30 costs INR 9,999 for 3GB + 32GB variant, INR 11,999 for the 4GB + 64GB variant, and INR 16,999 for the 6GB + 128GB variant. As for the Galaxy M20, the brand has removed its listing from the official Indian website, suggesting that the smartphone has been discontinued. Although, a few sellers are selling it online for a price of INR 11,000 for 3GB + 32GB variant, and INR 12,000 for 4GB + 64GB variant.
