“The Samsung Galaxy M40 update brings Blue light filter that was surprisingly missing when it was launched”
Samsung Galaxy M40 (Review) is receiving a new firmware update with software version number M405FDDU1ASG2. This brings the camera and facial recognition improvements and June security patch. The 378.40MB update also includes a Blue light filter that was surprisingly missing when it was launched back in June. Samsung says it may include device stability improvements as well. Unfortunately, the update still doesn’t bring Bixby Routines to the Galaxy M40, which is surprising as the lower-priced Galaxy A50 has it. The update to the Samsung Galaxy M40 has already started rolling out, but it should take a week or two to reach everyone.
