Samsung has now reportedly started rolling out the Android 9 Pie update to Samsung Galaxy J6 in India. The news comes after we recently heard of the company rolling out the Pie update to the device in Italy.
The latest software brings Google’s latest Android Pie features as well as Samsung’s own One UI interface. The update, however, does not include the latest security patch. The phone still has the March 2019 Android security patch. The Android Pie update for the Samsung Galaxy J6 brings software version J600GDXU3BSD9, reports SamMobile.
With the latest update, users will now be able to use the all-new OneUI from Samsung. The latest UI features newly designed controls at the bottom with larger search box or text at the first half. Apart from this, users will be able to use new gesture controls, a new pill-shaped icon for navigations, refined notifications, and Quick Settings, vertical volume controls and new power menu among others.
Since the update is being rolled out over-the-air, it may take some time before it comes to your device and will reach all the users in the coming weeks. One can also manually check for the update by going to Settings ->About Phone -> Software Update. Before starting the update, your device should be at least 50% charged with a stable Wi-Fi network.
To recall, the Galaxy J6 was launched in May last year for a price of Rs 13,990 but has since been brought down to Rs 10,490 after several price drops. It features a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 with a 2.5D curved glass. Galaxy J6 employs a single 13-megapixel primary camera with a fixed f/1.9 aperture and an LED flash. There will be an 8-megapixel sensor on the front with the same aperture, all of which will be housed on a plastic body. The phone has a 3,000mAh battery and there’s also a fingerprint scanner at the back for security. The device is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7870 chipset with options to choose from 3GB and 4GB RAM variants and up to 64GB of onboard storage.
