It has only been three days since Samsung released the fourth Android 10 beta for the Galaxy S10. The company is now rolling out a completely new build for the Galaxy S10 series. This is the fifth beta release for the initial markets which include Germany, the United States and South Korea.
This appears to be the fastest that Samsung has sent out two beta updates without the second being a hotfix for a major issue identified in the first. The firmware that’s rolling out today is a bonafide Android 10 beta update.
New Android 10 beta being rolled out for the Galaxy S10
Samsung is now rolling out firmware version G97**XXU3ZSKF for Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ units that are already running beta firmware. The changelog mentions that it brings fixes for several bugs. They include a black screen appearing on the device when it’s unlocked using the fingerprint, the date not being showed in AOD Photo Mode, overlapping of camera zoom and camera mode icons, music quality deteriorating after the previous update and more.
It’s pertinent to note that the list of bug fixes included in this update is shorter than the previous one. This is a good indication that Samsung is closer to getting Android 10 ready for public release. It has already stopped taking registrations for the Galaxy S10 beta program in South Korea. All signs are now pointing toward an impending Android 10 release for the Galaxy S10.
If history is any indication, Samsung should be in a position to roll out the Android 10 One UI 2.0 update to Galaxy S10 owners before the end of this year.
