Android 10 One UI 2 update officially delayed in India due to COVID-19

Perhaps prompted by countless queries about the Android 10 update's release timeframe for the Galaxy A50, Samsung India issued a notice through the Members app, informing customers that the Android 10 and One UI 2 update will be delayed. This seems to be a general response, and not something that will affect only Galaxy A50 owners.

This delay isn't caused by Samsung having any development issues, but rather by the ongoing lockdown mandated by the Indian government to curb the spread of COVID-19. The notice reads With the government's mandate to observe complete lockdown, we're experiencing a slight delay at our end to bring you One UI 2 updates.

It's unclear what this slight delay entails and when Samsung will resume its normal operations (the nationwide lockdown is currently expected to end on May 3). Various Galaxy models in India were planned to receive Android 10 and One UI 2 in May, but this time window could now be missed. The list of eligible devices for the tentative May release included the Galaxy A6 and A6+, the Galaxy A9 (2018), A8 Star, A10, A10s, A20, A30s, A70, Galaxy Fold, and the Galaxy Tab S6, though some of these have already been updated.

In the meantime, the Galaxy A50 has disappeared from both the ‘eligible' and ‘completed' list of devices, so only time will tell when the device will get the highly-anticipated One UI 2 treatment. It should be noted that Samsung had also released Android 10 for the Galaxy A50 in India earlier but later pulled it because of complaints about bugs and issues.
