Yesterday, Samsung rolled out the January 2023 security patch to the Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+, which was most likely the last quarterly update for the phones as they will soon be downgraded to the biannual security update status. The Galaxy S10 Lite, which launched a full year later, is still eligible for monthly security updates. To that extent, Samsung is rolling out the January 2023 security patch to the phone.
The latest security update for the Galaxy S10 Lite is rolling out to the phone’s international variant. The new update’s firmware version is G770FXXS6HWA2. It brings the January 2023 security patch that fixes more than a few dozen security vulnerabilities. Although the update is currently rolling out only in Spain, we expect it to be available in other regions in the next couple of days.
As usual, go to Settings » Software update and click on Download and install to check for the update manually. There’s nothing exciting about this update, as it doesn’t bring any new features. However, for some reason, if you are eager to install it and it isn’t showing up even after checking manually, you can download the firmware from our database and flash it manually.
In November 2022, Samsung updated the Galaxy S10 Lite to Android 13 (One UI 5.0), the phone’s last major software update. That means it won’t be getting Android 14. The rest of the phones in the series—S10e, S10, and S10+—didn’t get the Android 13 update as they were launched one year before the Galaxy S10 Lite. The Galaxy S10 Lite will keep getting monthly security updates until April.
