When will Galaxy S10 get Android 11?

Galaxy S10 was the first Samsung device to get Android 10 update but now that the S20 has come into existence, also becoming the company’s latest flagship, that privilege will also pass to the latter. Sure, the S10 will still be among the first few Samsung devices to get Android 11, but it’s come down the pecking order a bit.

We expect Samsung to release the Android 11 update for the Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e sometime in January 2021. Most probably, it will be topped with One UI 3, that should succeed One UI 2, or now, One UI 2.1. The release date could be knocked down by a month or some carrier variants (T-Mobile, most probably), and the 5G editions.

Though, the Android 11 beta update for the Galaxy S10 could be out by December 2020. it may be limited to some variants, but the Global Unlocked and US Unlocked should make it the list, as well as the T-Mobile and Sprint variants.

Samsung will release the Android 11 update first of all for the S20 lineup (non-5G editions only) in December, but the beta update for the device should be up by November. Once the update is available for the S20, we will know what changes it will be packing in.
