South Korean giant Samsung has been rolling out a lot of updates for its beta version of Android 10’s One UI 2.0. It’s now reported that the firm is finally is starting with the rollout of the official Android 10 update for its S10 series well in advance of its roadmap for the 10th-gen Android software. This comes as a surprise as Samsung is notoriously slow when it comes to updates.
Earlier set be in January, the One UI 2.0 is exclusive for the users of the S10 series in Germany only. This update seems like a holiday surprise from Samsung. The update brings most of the Android 10 features, like the new gestures and small tweaks, along with the December security patch. This will be a staged rollout so people throughout the globe will have to wait for theirs to arrive.
Users can just wait for the notification of manually check in the Software Update settings. According to BGR, the update is of about 2GB and comes with the version number G97**XXU3BSKO. However, if you had enrolled for the beta program for the Galaxy S10, the update is a mere 140MB.
OnePlus 7T was the first phone to ship with the Android 10 out of the box, followed by Pixel. Critics claimed that Samsung phones will officially be on the newest Android upgrade by February but Samsung has made them fall flat on their faces. It’s my guess that the 3-months old Note 10 series will be the next in line, followed by the S9 series and Note 9.
