Samsung is all set to launch the budget M-series smartphones in India next week, and the event is set to take place on January 29. Two smartphones are expected, the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20, with starting price of Rs 7,990 and Rs 10,990, respectively. We have come across leaked specifications and features of the Samsung smartphones, and there is one disappointing aspect of both devices – they run Android Oreo.
Yes, Google released Android 9 Pie update last year in August, and five months later, a new smartphone launching with Android Oreo is tad disappointing. And for users buying the Galaxy M10 or Galaxy M20 smartphones will have to wait for a long time to get a stable Pie update. The updated roadmap on Samsung Members app reveals that both the smartphones will get Android Pie update in Q3 2019, August to be precise. Now, as it happened in case with the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9, the official update may rollout before August, but there is no clarity on that.
