Samsung has set a good pace for updating its flagship smartphones to Android 11, and now after a brief beta that kicked off in December, the update has expanded to reach several of the company's mid-range phones. Updates are rolling out way ahead of the roadmap Samsung shared back in December, and are now starting to come to the Galaxy A51 5G, A71 5G, M30s, and M31s.

The M30s's update weighs in at roughly 2GB and has only been spotted in India so far. As well as bringing all the fancy new features of Android 11, Samsung's feature-packed One UI has further been refined and improved. In the changelog, I noticed that Smart View no longer supports Google Cast, meaning you can't share your screen to a Chromecast or Android TV device. I use this feature rarely, but even so, it was useful and something that I'll miss. It also means wireless DeX won't be compatible with those devices, which is even more of a shame.

In addition to updates also landing for the A51 5G and A71 5G, we're additionally getting early reports of availability for the M31s, though so far only limited to Russia and Ukraine.


Added info on Android 11 for the M31s.
