Galaxy S10 series already getting August security update


Last updated: July 30th, 2020 at 11:42 UTC+02:00

Once again, Samsung is rolling out a new security patch ahead of time for one of its devices. The Galaxy S10 lineup (not including the 5G model) is getting a new update in Germany that brings the August security patch to the 2019 flagship. The update is accompanied by firmware version G97xFXXU8CTG4 and is available both over the air and through our firmware archive.

The firmware version suggests the update includes more than just the August security patch, but the changelog isn’t known at this time. If you have a Galaxy S10e, S10, or S10+ and have received the update, feel free to tell us down in the comments if you spot any changes or new features. Naturally, this isn’t going to be a major update. The Galaxy S10 series is already running One UI 2.1, and it’s still unconfirmed whether One UI 2.5 is in the pipeline for last year’s Galaxy flagships or if they will jump directly to Android 11 and One UI 3.0.

The August update is only available in Germany at this time, but that should change in the next couple of days. To download it on your Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, or Galaxy S10+ over the air, open the phone’s Settings app, select Software update, and tap Download and install. Alternatively, grab the latest firmware from our archive and install it on your phone using a Windows computer.
