Galaxy S10 January 2020 security update rolling out now

Just a day after the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ started making the jump to the January 2020 security patch, Samsung has released the January security update for the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+. Samsung brought 2020’s first security patch to many of its devices in late December, and it is continuing to expand its availability every day now that the new year has kicked off.

The January update for the Galaxy S10 series is the first one for these phones since they were updated to Android 10, and it seems the initial Android 10 build was quite stable, as the new update does not bring any improvements or fixes. It only includes the latest security patch, which is also the case for the Galaxy Note 10’s January update that started rolling out yesterday.

The new update comes with software version G97*FXXS3BSL4. The update is currently available in Switzerland, but it should be making its way to more countries in the next few days. You can download the update on your S10e, S10 or S10+ over the air from the phone’s Settings » Software update menu, or by downloading the latest firmware from our firmware archive and flashing it on your device using a Windows PC.

Received the January security update today in Germany


Nun lass doch den Januar erstmal beginnen, der Monat, für den Android 10 für die 9er geplant war/ ist. Hatte zwar auch gedacht, dass sie es VOR dem Note 9 bekommen, aber sei es drum.

Und, die “böse” Konkurrenten ist da auch nicht besser. Ob DAS ein “Grund” ist, zu Apple zu wechseln, muss jeder für sich selbst entscheiden. Für mich nicht, zumal IOS nicht “meins” ist.


Meanwhile the S9 didn’t even got Android 10 … Amazing how Android brands forget the old devices soooo easily.

Makes me thing that an Apple device maybe would be worth the bigger price.


Dont fool yourself. S9 has night mode on ALL cameras. Apple has It only on the New devices and only on the main camera. A lot of features are exclusive on the iPhone 11 series. Apple are not that great since they kept features exclusive when Samsung is giving older devices a lot of the New features
