The Galaxy S10 series has had a good run. Considered by many to be the last true Galaxy S flagship after Samsung started trimming the list of hardware features from the Galaxy S20 onwards, the Galaxy S10 lineup went on sale more than four years ago and has enjoyed three major Android OS upgrades since then.
Galaxy S10 software updates: Support ends for original four models
Like all Samsung flagships (except tablets), the Galaxy S10 models also received monthly security updates for the first three years, following which they were downgraded to a quarterly security update schedule in April last year. And earlier this year, the Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+ stopped receiving quarterly updates as well as they reached the end of their support period.
However, for some reason Samsung did not remove the Galaxy S10 5G from the quarterly schedule along with the rest of the models. But that's changing today: Samsung will no longer release regular updates for the original four Galaxy S10 models. In fact, it will not release updates for those devices at all unless some critical security flaw needs fixing.
The Galaxy S10e, S10, S10+, and S10 5G have all been scrubbed from the list of Samsung devices that are eligible for security updates. And, as owners of these phones probably know already, they will not be getting any Android OS or One UI upgrades either, as they debuted running Android 9 and were eligible only for three generations of OS updates.
Galaxy S10 Lite will continue to get quarterly security updates
The Galaxy S10 Lite is now the only Galaxy S10 model that will continue to get security updates as it was launched nearly a year after the other S10s. But there won't be any major OS updates for the S10 Lite going forward. It's among many other popular Galaxy devices that aren't eligible for Android 14 and One UI 6.0, though it will end its life on newer versions of Android (13) and One UI (5.1) than the rest of the Galaxy S10 lineup.
