    Galaxy S10 5G gets November 2022 security fixes while users await an update that will never come

    The Galaxy S10 5G, like the Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+, is on a quarterly update schedule, and except the S10 Lite, none of the Galaxy S10 phones are eligible for the Android 13 update. That leaves only minor updates focusing on security and possibly one or two more point One UI releases Galaxy S10 5G owners can look forward to, and today, a new minor update has been released for the device.

    The Galaxy S10 5G has received a firmware update with software version G977BXXUDHVK1 in some parts of Europe today, and more markets should follow suit in the coming days. However, don't expect this particular update to be released in every country.

    The Galaxy S10 5G gets quarterly security updates so there's a good chance Samsung will skip updating the phone in some countries this month and release a newer update in those countries later on.

    Galaxy S10 series (except S10 Lite) won't get Android 13

    The update that is rolling out now includes the November 2022 security patch. Based on the firmware version, some other changes are included as well (the fifth letter from the last is a U instead of an S, which means it's not just security fixes). Unfortunately, we don't have a changelog so we don't know what those changes might be, but we will let you know by updating this article once we find out.

    Grab the latest update for your Galaxy S10 5G by opening its Settings app and tapping Download and install in the Software update submenu. If that doesn't work, your country probably hasn't received the update yet. And as mentioned earlier, users in other markets might get a newer firmware down the line – there's no way to be sure.

    You can also try downloading the latest firmware from our archive and installing it on your Galaxy S10 5G using a Windows PC, though a little technical know-how is recommended if you follow this route (the phone will not be completely bricked if something goes wrong, though it is possible all your data  will be erased trying to get the phone back to a working condition so it's best to take a backup).
