Samsung has started rolling out Android Pie update to its affordable Galaxy J6 smartphone. This new update not only brings a new OS to the smartphone, but also Samsung’s new One UI. The update for the Galaxy J6 is rolling out a few days after Samsung rolled out a similar update for its Galaxy J8.
The update being rolled out has the codename J600FNXXU3BSD1, and it is over 1.2GB in size. Along with Android Pie and One UI, the smartphone is also getting the March 2019 Android security patch. This comes as a tad surprising, since Samsung has lately started offering the April 2019 security patch to some of its smartphones. With the update, Galaxy J6 users will be able to enjoy Samsung’s new UI complete with an overhauled design, dark mode, new navigation buttons, and more.
As with all software updates, this too is being rolled out in phases. Galaxy J6 users should receive a notification when the update is ready for their devices. Alternatively, you can head over to the Settings menu to manually check for the update. With an update this size, it is advisable to have a steady Wi-Fi connection before going through with the process.
