“The Samsung Galaxy M40 update also brings a new QR code scanner, device stability, bugs fixes, and camera performance improvements

The Samsung Galaxy M40 smartphone has started receiving a new firmware update in India. The chaebol is rolling out the update with version M405FDDU1ASH1 and 366MB download size over-the-air to the Galaxy M40. Upon installation of the new software, the handset will get August security patch along with a bunch of camera updates, including a dedicate Night Mode for images in a low-light environment and a QR scanner. The latter will scan QR codes whenever the camera is pointed at them, removing the need for installing third-party QR scanning apps on the Samsung Galaxy M40. Since the phone doesn’t support Bixby, it’ll be a great feature for the handset users. Notably, a lot of Samsung smartphones have been getting the feature lately.

Apart from this, the update brings device stability, bugs fixes, and camera performance improvements.
