The reported changelog suggests that the latest Galaxy M40 update brings a dedicated QR scanner, removing the need for third-party scanning apps. The update improves the overall security of the phone, and also brings along the latest August 2019 Android security patch. Although the changelog doesn’t mention it, SamMobile reports that the update brings a dedicated Night Mode inside the Camera app to help in taking better low-light photos.

The Samsung Galaxy M40 price is set at KRW 338822.50 for the lone 6GB RAM + 128GB storage configuration. The smartphone was launched in India in June this year with Midnight Blue and Seawater Blue gradient colour options. A new Cocktail Orange Color option was launched last month as well. To recall, the Galaxy M40 features a full-HD+ Infinity-O Display and has a triple rear camera setup. The smartphone also houses a “screen sound” technology that enables the display panel to produce audio vibrations.
