Galaxy S10 July security update finally rolling out!

The Galaxy S10 lineup is now receiving an update with the July 2019 security patch. Samsung has been taking its sweet time to bring security updates to its latest flagships ever since the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ went on sale, and the July update has come out pretty late as well. But it’s here now – it is currently rolling out in Switzerland and Germany for the Exynos variant and should become available in other countries over the next few days.

The update comes with software version G97*FXXU3ASG8 and is a 388 MB download over the air. The changelog accompanying it is exactly the same as previous updates, so we will need to dig around to see if there are any new features. Fair warning, though: It seems that once the new update is installed, you cannot go back to older software, so you might want to wait and see if the update is completely bug-free before installing it on your device, especially if your device was affected by issues that plagued previous updates.

You can download the July update over the air by opening the Settings app on your S10e, S10, or S10+, selecting Software update, then hitting the Download and install option. You might want to try this a couple of times if the update doesn’t immediately show up; you can also upgrade your device using the firmware for the latest update by grabbing it from our firmware database.

Have you received the update on your Galaxy S10? Notice any new features or improvements? Let us know in the comments below.

Wouldn’t be surprised if this late US Snapdragon versions will skip and wait for the August update. I actually thought that with the Galaxy S10 series representing 10 years of the Galaxy series it was going to be first in line with updates by Samsung this year. When budget Samsung phones have the July update as well as phones from previous years all US Snapdragon Galaxy S10 series users as well as Galaxy S10 series users in general can do is shake their heads.

” I actually thought that with the Galaxy S10 series representing 10 years of the Galaxy series it was going to be first in line with updates by Samsung this year”

they did, I don’t see any problem here. The problem specifically happens on US Snapdragon version. HONG KONG version, and Exynos version which is around the world DON’T HAVE any problems.

Blame your carrier for NOT pushing any update, not SAMSUNG.

I guess illiteracy is still a problem in the world. I said US Snapdragon Galaxy S10 series owners first and I stand by the statement of the Galaxy S10 series as a whole. I shouldn’t have to choose between getting faster updates on an inferior Exynos SOC (and yes the Exynos version is inferior) or foreign Snapdragon that has limited development support for it’s unlocked bootloader. I’ll take the wait over any of that Exynos SOC garbage any day.

whatever the improvement may be brought into Samsung S10 series eventually It is UNEQUAL to Huawei P30 PRO shots esp Night Shots and Macro shots. Updates are just gimmick and out of updates Samsung is earning money but nothing useful… as far as my knowledge is concern There is no new feature being introduced or camera quality is not been improved like Huawei P30 Pro. Being a FAN of Samsung S1 to S10+ series I feel shame and thinking to change Huawei,,

dude get a life or just get the P30 Pro if you like it so much. I saw your same comment on GSMArena as well

Lol have you seen the video of any huawei phone? Sure huawei has that creepy zoom and super bright night (hint it’s night shot, it’s not supposed to be bright..). The video is HORRENDOUS. For a flagship phone. That jittering while panning and the noise, god awful quality. The kirin 980 is a joke. Poor graphics capability, they have to WORK with gaming industry to SPECIFICALLY ensure their games run well on these phones lol. They’re paying crazy money to these developers because they’re funded by the ccp. It’s great how they can turn that weakness into a marketing ‘strength’.

The US unlocked version of the S10+ hasn’t received an update since the May security release. Pretty poor update schedule for their newest flagship models in one of their biggest markets.

Blame your carriers and/or Samsung US for that…

I am so tired sometimes when US people keep complaining about SLOW update, while it’s CLEAR that their CARRIER is the PROBLEM not SAMSUNG, and keep saying that “we are the BIGGEST markets” or something like that.

SAMSUNG customers NOT ONLY about US, everyone in the world are their customers, too. Sometimes we must PAID for HIGHER Price compared to what US have.

When we pay what we pay we can and will complain. You international Exynos version owners are definitely Samsung’s biggest money draw because they know they can sell you inferior Exynos versions and you take it every year. The Exynos version may be ahead of the US Snapdragon models in updates but are still behind in overall performance. I see that’s been the standard for the Samsung Galaxy S series for a while now so I’m not expecting it to change. I don’t mind Exynos owners getting updates faster. That’s Samsung’s way of trying to make up for the 2nd… Read more »
