These Samsung Galaxy S series phones won’t get Android 13

Samsung S series Android 13

It is obvious that no smartphone can always get updates as every company has its own update policy, according to which it sets a timeline for its phone. At that time, the company brings new updates and features to the smartphone. According to the Samsung One UI update policy, the flagship smartphones and tablets that launched after/in 2021 are compatible with four generations of major updates.

Now, if we’re talking about the Galaxy S series, then currently Galaxy S22 is the latest one that comes with a bundle of new features, impressive design, and more. Smartphones of this series will first get the update of Android 13, while the Samsung Galaxy S10 series won’t.

But there are also some smartphones in the S series that will no longer receive any major updates, which means they are not eligible for Android 13. You can check the list of Galaxy S series smartphones that are incompatible with the Android 13 update.

Samsung Galaxy S10 series won’t get Android 13

  • Galaxy S10e
  • Galaxy S10
  • Galaxy S10+
  • Galaxy S10 5G

Reason:

Previously, most of the Samsung Galaxy devices received two major and two years of regular monthly security patches, and quarterly patches for the third year. Samsung revised its One UI update policy and now it offers four major Android updates for its flagship devices that launched after or in the year 2021.

Back in August 2020, the Korean tech giant stated that all major Galaxy devices that debuted with Android 9-based One UI 1.x software would receive three major OS upgrades. The announcement brings additional Android updates for the famous Galaxy S10 series and Galaxy Note 10 series. And now, the Galaxy S10 series smartphones mentioned above are not eligible for any major Android upgrade, which means that will not get the Android 13 update.

Samsung Galaxy S23 to use Huawei-inspired Android 13 space-saving feature

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Concept

Google released two Android 13 beta updates for its Pixel users that reveals that the new Android Operating System is bringing many new features and improvements for the owners. One of the features that the company will be adding seems to be inspired by Huawei’s space-saving file system format.

According to Esper’s report, all smartphones that will come pre-installed with Android 13 OS, including the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, will use the Enhanced Read-Only File System. EROFS was created by Xiang Gao when working as an engineer at Huawei.

The Chinese tech maker created EROFS for inclusion in the Linux kernel, which forms the basis of Android. Thus, Google feels prepared to make EROFS the preferred file system for read-only partitions for Android.

This technology offers significant advantages over existing file systems, including space-saving compression and speed. It will direct to potentially faster update downloads and a little less storage space lost to the system.

Further, the system partition is usually read-only therefore shortening it is an adorable option to save space on files that only change when the system is updated. However, most compression systems have effective performance hits, which is a limitation that EROFS specifically addresses.

You might think that the feature will be available to all devices that will receive the Android 13 update. But no, EROFS is only coming to the devices that will launch with Android 13 OS and only those that have Google’s services built-in.
