Google: Samsung will release stable Android 10 update by end of year
Samsung may not want to say it to its customers officially, but if we are to be believe Google, the Korean giant will release the stable Android 10 update for some devices before 2020. Google, in a post on its Android developers blog about how Project Treble has helped make adoption of newer versions of Android faster, revealed that “many manufacturers such as ASUS, LG, Motorola, OPPO, Realme, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, Transsion, and Vivo have committed to updating some of their devices to Android 10 by the end of the year.”
Now, before you get excited, you should keep in mind that this does not mean Samsung will have updated some of its devices to Android 10 and One UI 2.0 beta before the end of the year in every country around the world. However, we can expect it to not limit the rollout to just one country – the Galaxy S9’s stable Android Pie update was first released around Christmas last year, but it took a few weeks for the update to expand to more than one market. The Galaxy S10 is likely to be the first Galaxy device to be updated, followed by the Galaxy Note 10.
In its blog post, Google has also praised Samsung for launching an open Android 10 beta more than a month earlier than it released the Android Pie beta last year. That’s something that took us by surprise as well, but we are a little less enamored by the fact that the Galaxy S10 beta program is still available only in three countries and the Galaxy Note 10 One UI 2.0 beta is yet to make its debut. However, that will hopefully change later today.
