Galaxy S10’s Note 10 feature update available for US unlocked devices
For a change, Samsung is rolling out an important update for the unlocked Galaxy S10 alongside the carrier-locked variants. The major feature update that brings multiple Galaxy Note 10 features to the Galaxy S10 was released for T-Mobile and other carriers earlier this week and is now available for download on unlocked devices. It comes with software version G97*U1UEU2BSIP and includes the October 2019 security patch.
The Galaxy Note 10 had quite a few software tricks up its sleeve when it was launched in August, but it wasn’t long before Samsung brought all of those to the Galaxy S10 series as well. Once the new update is installed, Galaxy S10 owners can enjoy a slew of new camera features, including AR Doodle, a dedicated Night mode and Hyperlapse mode for the front-facing camera, and Night mode for the telephoto rear camera (S10 and S10+ only).
They can also use their Galaxy S10 with Samsung DeX on a PC and instantly connect to Microsoft’s Your Phone Companion app on Windows by using the dedicated Link to Windows shortcut in the notification shade. That’s not all: The update also introduces the Dynamic Lock screen feature and an enhanced video editor that supports adding subtitles to videos and stitching multiple video clips together.
If you own an unlocked Galaxy S10 in the US, you can download the update over the air from the Software update menu of your phone’s Settings app. The update may take some time to reach all users, but if you don’t want to wait, you can upgrade your device by downloading the latest firmware from our firmware archive.
