    Second Galaxy S10 Android 10 beta update is out, fixes plenty of bugs

    After expanding the Android 10 beta program for the Galaxy S10 to new markets yesterday, Samsung has started rolling out a second beta in countries where the program debuted earlier this month: the US, Germany and South Korean. It's even available in the UK, where the beta program was launched temporarily. As expected, the second beta brings fixes for a slew of bugs in the first beta release; it comes with software version G97*USQU2ZSJF in the US, G97*FXXU3ZSJF in Germany, and G97*NKSU3ZSJF in Korea.

    The first bullet point in the list of bug fixes is the most important one: The second beta includes the patch for the fingerprint flaw that enables the phone to be unlocked by any fingerprint when a certain type of silicone case is installed on the screen. This patch is available for those on Android Pie as an over-the-air biometrics update. The new beta update also fixes battery consumption and heat issues, force closes in Bixby Routines and the camera and keyboard apps, a bug that enables Dark mode even when it is deselected when a power saving mode is active, and a crash of the android.process.media process, among others.

    The changelog for Germany mentions that the update adds some new features, such as slow motion for the front camera and a Auto Hotspot functionality, but all of these are already available in the first beta. In any case, if you own a Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, or Galaxy S10+, you can download the second beta update — ranging from 500 to 650 MB in size — from the Settings » Software update menu on your phone.
