Samsung S10 November 2022 update US

Update: June 8, 2022

Two months after the Galaxy S10 series devices, Samsung has now retired the Galaxy S10 5G smartphone, from monthly software support, as well. The S10 5G was launched around 2 months later from the Galaxy S10 lineup, which has now been completed three years of its initial global debut.

Initial Story: April 5, 2022

As usual, Samsung has recently published the revised software update support page for the Galaxy devices. Aside from the addition of some newly launched devices, we saw two major revisions in the company’s security patch distribution policy.

Firstly, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus smartphones are no longer eligible for any new software update by Samsung. At the same time, Samsung has officially ended monthly software update eligibility of the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ devices.

Accordingly, the Galaxy S10 series smartphones will now have new security patches on a quarterly basis. This move is not unexpected as the company is offering monthly patches to these devices since 2019. And after three years, they will now get quarterly updates for a year, followed by biannual for a year.

Samsung Galaxy S10 monthly software

Launched back in March 2019, the Samsung Galaxy S10 series devices shipped pre-loaded with the Android 9-based One UI 1.1. These models have completed their major upgrades lifecycle later last year by receiving the Android 12-based One UI 4.0.

Last month, Samsung released the new One UI 4.1 update, which brings the Galaxy S22-inspired Camera features to the Galaxy S10 lineup. Unquestionably, the Galaxy S10 series consumers will have to enjoy their models with the Android 12-based One UI 4.1 as there’s no big upgrade remaining.

As of now, Samsung Galaxy S10 series devices have not received the monthly (April 2022 security patch) so far. Therefore, we can expect the next s/w update two months later if the company skips the April patch for the Galaxy S10 phones. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S10 5G is still eligible for monthly software updates, at least some more.
