[Update: January 2021 Security Patch] Samsung Galaxy S10/ S10 Lite updates tracker

0

Samsung released the S10 lineup by the end of February 2019. There were 5 flagships in the S10 series, one of which were a 5G variant of the original S10. Like every other flagship, these devices sported the latest and powerful hardware of early 2019 like the Gorilla Glass 6, Snapdragon 855, UFS 2.1 storage, 8-12 gigs of RAM and much more.

At the time of its release, some reviewers complained about the pricing of the 5G version of the S10. However, Samsung’s decision to move towards 5G became an inspiration for most other manufacturers, as they started implementing 5G in their flagships.

  • [December 1, 2020]: Samsung released the December Security Patch update for the Galaxy S10 series and the Note 20 series at the same time. However, the update that was released for the Note 20 series had some hiccups. The update for the Galaxy S10 series doesn’t seem to have any problems whatsoever, since no one has reported any issues regarding it.
    The update seems to include nothing special as it is a routine Security Patch update for Android. Since it is an OTA update, it might take several days to reach customers all over the world. You can wait for your device to update automatically or as always you could go to Settings to update your device manually.
    You can also try updating with Odin and a valid Stock ROM. However, we won’t recommend that you do it since it involves a small chance of  “things going wrong”.

The Galaxy S10 lineup has a wonderful set of devices, even though you might get confused while buying an S10. We still recommend it as a flagship device if you are planning on buying one.
