Samsung will soon roll out Android 9 Pie to the Galaxy M10, M20, and M30

Samsung announced today that it will roll out Android 9 Pie to the Galaxy M10 ^(, M20 ^(, and M30 ^( starting June 3.

In addition to the latest security patch, the update also includes Samsung’s One UI interface. Replacing the previous Samsung Experience overlay, One UI makes it easier to use your phone one-handed and places certain UI elements within reach.

One UI also includes a new gesture navigation system, improvements to DeX, the ability to re-map the Bixby button to an app or command, and more.

You also get Pie features, which include a new app overview screen, slight changes to notifications, improved text selection, Digital Wellbeing, and more. Keep in mind that Digital Wellbeing is not available for every Samsung phone running Pie.

The Galaxy M10, M20, and M30 are Samsung’s answers to the rising presence of Chinese brands like Xiaomi, Vivo, Honor, and Oppo in India. Even brands like Realme have threatened Samsung’s position in the country due to its high-end smartphone offerings at low- to mid-range prices.

As such, Samsung is advertising its trio of Galaxy M smartphones toward millennials. The company is also only offering the phones online through either Amazon or its website.

Best Buy cancels Galaxy Fold pre-orders, throws shade at Samsung

Samsung Galaxy Fold home screen in hand

According to a post in the official Best Buy support forums ^(, the popular electronics retailer is canceling all pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Fold.

This news comes on the back of Samsung postponing the release date of the company’s first foldable smartphone in order to fix various problems early reviewers faced when using the device. Samsung promised to announce an updated release date for the Samsung Galaxy Fold but hasn’t done so as of yet.

In the Best Buy message regarding the pre-order cancelations, the retailer makes it clear that Samsung hasn’t provided it with any new information on the Fold’s release date. As such, Best Buy has little choice but to cancel all the orders:

The Samsung Galaxy Fold has become one of the most curious and highly anticipated devices of 2019. […] However, with breakthrough designs and technology come many hurdles and the possibility to face a plethora of unforeseen hiccups. These hurdles have led Samsung to postpone the release of the Galaxy Fold, and Samsung has not provided a new release date. Because we put our customers first and want to ensure they are taken care of in the best possible manner, Best Buy has decided to cancel all current pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Fold.

The line “because we put our customers first” is definitely a bit of shade thrown at Samsung’s feet, as it implies Best Buy is doing something that Samsung isn’t.

The message also implies that not only is Samsung not revealing to the press or general public when the Fold will actually launch, but that it isn’t even dishing the info off-the-record to one of its largest retail partners.

The last we heard from Samsung regarding the Samsung Galaxy Fold was when DJ Koh revealed that a decision regarding the device would come “in a couple of days.” That was on May 9, roughly two weeks ago.

We’ve reached out to Samsung in order to get more information on this topic. We will update this article should we hear back.
