Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Android 10 update, security updates, and more: October patch released as OTA!

Find all the info on updates for the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G here. We discuss the Android 10 update for the Samsung’s first 5G handset here, its beta, release date, and more. We also take a look at the monthly security updates released for the S10 5G models at various carriers in the US (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon), and the US unlocked model.

Latest News

October 04, 2019: The Global S10 5G is now receiving the October security patch, coming in as version G977BXXU2ASI7, or ASI7 in short. The update also includes September security patches.

September 27, 2019: Surprisingly enough, Verizon’s S10 5G is receiving the September security update now (version G977UVRS2ASI4), even before the global model. We expect the September uu to hit the UK, Australia, users in the next few days/weeks, and the same goes for the T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint S10 5G users.

September 24, 2019: The S10 5G units at AT&T are receiving a security update that installs the security patches up to September 2019. The update’s version is G977UUCS2YSI1.

Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Android 10 update

  • The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is eligible for Android 10 update
  • It will be known as One UI 2.0 OS update
  • It will also receive Android 11

Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, like every other device in the S10 series, is guaranteed to receive Android 10 update. In fact, it’s also eligible for Android 11 update. For the release date info,  and more on One UI 2.0, see the sections right below.

When will Galaxy S10 5G receive Android 10 update

  • Android 10 rollout for S10 5G may be a bit delayed compared to non-5G S10 sets
  • The rollout could begin in February 2020
  • The non-5G Galaxy S10 variants should be getting stable Android 10 first, probably in January 2020

Samsung may release the beta version of Android 10 update — it will be called One UI 2.0, see below for more — for the Global and some US variants of the Galaxy S10 5G before rolling out the stable update.

Given the trend of monthly security updates, where the S10 5G has lagged behind its non-5G S10 sets by a few weeks, we suspect that Android 10 may also get the same treatment. However, the S10 5G would still get the Android 10 update before the likes of Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 sets, and around the same time as the new Note 10 and Note 10 Plus handsets.

Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Android 10 Beta

Samsung should be releasing Android 10 beta update for the non-5G S10 handsets sometime in December 2019 but we would be surprised if they don’t give the S10 5G the same treatment. So we expect the Galaxy S10 5G to get Android 10 beta update in December 2019.

The beta update could be available for some of the US variants besides the Global variant.

New features in Galaxy S10 5G Android 10 update

Android 10 update for Google comes with great new features like Dark mode, improved Gestures Navigation, better Sharing Menu, Live Caption, Bubbles, better Permissions management, Accent Colors and Themes, and more.

Along with the new features mentioned above that are part of stock Android 10, Samsung will also be adding a few new features to One UI 2.0: native Screen Recorder, improved Gestures Navigation, Link to Windows, new UI in the Quick Settings panel, and more.

One UI 2.0 update

  • One UI 2.0 update is based on Android 10 update from Google
  • It won’t have major UI changes over One UI 1.0 but will pack few new features
  • Could release for Global model first (Jan 2020), followed by US variants (Feb 2020)

Samsung will be calling its Android 10 update, One UI 2.0. Even though Samsung has not confirmed the name, its features or release date, we already much about the new custom skin from Samsung because of its leak on the Galaxy S10 Plus (here).

As seen the leak, and as was expected, the One UI 2.0 update doesn’t come with a truckload of changes over One UI. You will minor UI redesigns in some areas, and addition of a few new utility features, but that would be it. Not that it is any less, as combined with the new features from stock Android 10, it’s a lot to look for.

Naturally, Samsung will release the Android 10 beta as One UI 2.0 beta, and will follow it up with a stable release for all the models — the Global model may get the beta and stab;e updates earlier than the US models, which is okay as it’s the trend Samsung has always followed.
