Samsung is already testing Android Q for the Galaxy S10

We’ve discovered that Samsung is already testing Android Q for the Galaxy S10 lineup. Google is yet to reveal what the Q in Android Q stands for, but the fact that Samsung is already testing it for its latest flagships shouldn’t be a major revelation. That’s because Android OEMs get access to all the code for the next major version of Android long before it gets a public release, although Samsung could learn from some of its peers and offer us beta access to the new software sooner than it has in the past.

That said, there’s hope the official Android Q release for the Galaxy S10 lineup will come quickly once the Android Q beta program kicks off. After all, Samsung didn’t take much time to bring the stable Android Pie update to the Galaxy S9 and S9+ after the first beta release had gone live, and that was despite how Pie was accompanied by one of the biggest user interface upgrades for Galaxy devices in recent years. Samsung has also been quite fast with bringing Android Pie to other Galaxy devices, so there’s a solid chance Galaxy S10 owners won’t have a long wait for Android Q, either.

We currently don’t have any information on how far along Samsung is with its progress on Android Q for the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and S10+ – all we know is that Android Q will introduce version 2.0 of One UI and the Digital Wellbeing improvements that Google has built into the tenth version of the operating system. What other features and functionality the update will include remains to be seen, but we will be sure to let you know as soon as we get more details.

But we haven’t even got pie on 8s active which as supposed to come out in February. It’s terrible when Samsung can’t keep up with Google cause there to busy trying to line there pockets instead of making sure the phones they have now are operating correctly.

Dear Abhijeet M. please do not give wrong guidance to S10 series users., I am using samsung for the past 10 Years. Samsung will not give update before final Android OS release. Even after releasing the Android Q, then only Samsung will start working on it during the mean time Samsung allows users to enroll for Beta. So it is my request please do not do it again like promoting wrong news. Still You are not ready to give to detail description about July update for S10+. what is it and features are what??? Just explain these first… Do not… Read more »

At the rate US Snapdragon Galaxy S10 series owners get monthly updates I’m not even looking for Android Q beta or not until 2020.

Some of you, may not like the O.S in beta mode, because it’s not fully as you can like it, they take stuff out, the put stuff in, not all users will like the O.S even in stability.Just enjoy the Android 9 for now.

Guys, chill down, With this Android Q stuff, eventually it will come , first to the flagships, then to the other series, so , first it’s testing time for all the manufacturers, beside Google, who owns the Stuff, then the manufacturers such as Samsung Huawei, and others, the testing is taking long, because every new O,S has flaws in it, and second, every seller brings his own interface to the O.S not like Google, and for that it takes time.

Android q for S10. Wow but be sure it comes not to Belgium. My S10 still stay finaly on may patch.

Pie & Android One are a pretty modern experience for me. Do I really need Digital Wellbeing stuff? Hahaha, I doubt it.

The Android OS is quite mature imo. What Google will do is tighten up user privacy control, refining operating gestures, & gradual additional application interoperability… Is this Essential to a Note 8/S8, Note 9/S9, S10 users…? Imo, it isn’t when compared to how clumsy Android was during the KitKat days.

The word “already” is not fitting at all on the title considering that most OEMs have been working on Android Q months now, even before it’s proper announcement by Google themselfs. Samsung is rather late jumping the bandwagon but is it really a surprise? I mean are people really living under a rock or the bias can be spread with zero criticism?

I’m happy to wait for it to be fully tested and ready. After the host of problems with Nougat when it came out on Pixel 2 (I had one and was one reason I eventually got rid of it), and it was the same with Pie when it came out on the Pixel 3. It’s far better to wait until the end of the year when it’s actually bug free than getting it too early. It’s one of the reasons they sell so few Pixel phones. They’re absolute trash when they come out, the buggiest crap you could ever imagine.

It doesn’t make sense. I always pay my phones in full or in other words, I buy my phones without a contract. It would be outrageous that MY phone turns into someone elses phone.
