Four years after the launch of the Galaxy A50 and the Galaxy S10 series, Samsung has decided to discontinue software update support for them. This sad news was first spotted by our friends at GalaxyClub earlier today when Samsung released the details surrounding the April 2023 security patch.
Samsung has stopped releasing software updates to Galaxy A50, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+
The Galaxy A50, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ are no longer listed on Samsung's webpage related to the software update schedule of Galaxy devices. For some reason, the Galaxy S10 5G, which was also launched in February 2019 alongside the rest of the Galaxy S10 series devices, is still listed and will continue to get software updates.
The Galaxy A50 was launched with Android 9 onboard and received two major Android OS updates: Android 10 and Android 11. The Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ debuted with Android 9, and the devices received three major Android OS updates: Android 10, Android 11, and Android 12.
Galaxy S10 Lite will continue to get software updates for one year more
Samsung launched the Galaxy S10 Lite in early 2020 with Android 10 onboard, and it received Android 11, Android 12, and Android 13. It recently received the One UI 5.1 update with additional new features. It will continue to get security updates for at least one more year.
