Samsung is now also making the update to Android 11 available on the Galaxy A40. Also on board is a new version of the One UI interface: 3.1, and a newer security patch.
Samsung Galaxy A40 Update: Android 11, One UI 3.1
Then it suddenly went fast with the rollout of Android 11 in Samsung’s Galaxy A series. Earlier this week, the update was released on the Galaxy A50 and A70 – now the smaller brother in the same generation follows.
The same upgrade now follows for the Galaxy A40, which consists of three parts on the device. A more than 2061 MB download brings the March security patch, Android 11, and One UI 3.1. The changelog is long and quite detailed.
Upgrade of this size can cause a temporary increase in energy consumption. The device takes a few hours, or days, to optimize everything for your personal usage patterns. When this process is completed, the battery consumption will return to normal on its own.
