Having launched in early 2019, the Galaxy A10 will soon have its fourth birthday, so by industry standards, the A10 is a rather old smartphone. It was also one of the most affordable phones Samsung launched back in 2019, but none of those facts stop the Korean giant from updating the Galaxy A10 on a somewhat regular basis, at least in some markets.
This week, the Galaxy A10 has received yet another new software update. Support for major OS upgrades for the Galaxy A10 ended with Android 11 back in August, 2021, and the phone has been on life support ever since, only receiving security updates for the most part. And that’s the case with the latest Galaxy A10 update, as well.
Galaxy A10 is among the first Samsung phones to get January 2023 security update
The newest Galaxy A10 firmware, which brings the January 2023 security patch, comes with version number A105MUBS8CVL1 and is rolling out in some South American markets. It’s a minor update that won’t change anything about the phone’s software except make it more secure against the many vulnerabilities that are fixed in the January security patch.
As is often the case with Samsung’s updates, the January 2023 update won’t immediately reach all regions where the phone is sold. The Galaxy A10 is on Samsung’s biannual security update schedule, so owners of the phone in some countries might even have to wait a month or more before the next update comes along, possibly with a newer security patch bundled with it.
You can always check if a new update is available for your Galaxy A10 using the SamMobile firmware archive; our archive also has the necessary firmware files available for manual upgradation using a Windows PC. However, the best way to get the update is over the air – just open the phone’s Settings app, tap Software update, followed by selecting the Download and install option.
