According to Tizenhelp, Samsung Galaxy A30 is getting the update in the Philippines and Indonesia. Samsung Galaxy A70, on the other hand, is reportedly getting the update in India.

It is not clear why Samsung is seeding June security patch to Galaxy A30 and older May security patch to Galaxy A70. However, it does seem like Samsung is not planning to repeat its mistakes with older Galaxy A-series devices. The Korean company was among the worst when it comes to software updates. As a result, it was notoriously slow and most devices from the company never saw any updates. However, with its Chinese rivals emphasizing on software updates, Samsung seems to be doing course correction as well. The software update for Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A70 shows Samsung will continue to roll out timely updates for the device. Samsung claims to have sold over 5 million Galaxy A-series devices in India in 70 days. The revised numbers were announced after it confirmed sales of 2 million units in 40 days.
