The May 2021 security update is now live for the Galaxy S10 series
Samsung has updated roughly two dozen Galaxy devices with the May 2021 security patch over the past couple of weeks, but the company still has some work left to do before it can claim that all of its eligible devices have been brought up to date. The latest trio of smartphones to boast improved security are the Galaxy S10e, the Galaxy S10, and the Galaxy S10+.
The latest update is identified by firmware version G97xFXXUAFUE3 and Samsung is now rolling it out for the Galaxy S10 series in Europe. Switzerland appears to have been the first market to seed the latest firmware update, but you can rest easy knowing that the update’s availability should expand into other markets momentarily. Assuming, of course, that the initial rollout goes without a hitch.
As expected, the May 2021 security patch addresses dozens of vulnerabilities affecting Android OS and Samsung’s own software, but more importantly, Samsung confirmed that the new security update should also contain a critical fix for a security vulnerability affecting millions of devices powered by Qualcomm modems.
As of now, the new update is rolling out to the Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+ with model numbers SM-G970F, SM-G973F, and SM-G975F. Eligible customers should be able to download the update via the Settings app on their phones, or they can acquire it from our firmware archive where the latest updates corresponding to each model number are now available.
