Unlocked Galaxy S10 gets August security update in the US
Samsung has started rolling out a new software update for the unlocked Galaxy S10 in the US. The latest update for unlocked Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ units brings the security patch for the month of August and comes with software version G97*U1UES2ASGF. Like the August update released for the Galaxy S10 lineup in other markets, the update for unlocked models in the US should include only security enhancements.
The August security patch brings patches for seven critical Android OS vulnerabilities and 17 vulnerabilities of varying severities that affect only Galaxy devices. The August patch has already been released for plenty of other Galaxy phones, including the Galaxy S9 and S9+, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy Note 9, and even the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+. Several budget and mid-range devices have been updated with the August patch as well.
None of the carrier-locked Galaxy S10 models in the US have received the August security update yet, although that might change in the next few days. The Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ are likely going to take up some of the time for carriers, and it could mean that some carriers will skip ahead to next month’s update or the one after that for the Galaxy S10 trio. Whatever the case may be, you can rest assured you will find out about it here on SamMobile.
Owners of unlocked Galaxy S10e, S10, or S10+ devices should be able to download the new update over the air from the Software update menu of the Settings app. Alternatively, they can upgrade by flashing the firmware — downloadable from our firmware section — for the update on their device using a Windows PC.
