Will my Galaxy smartphone or tablet get the Android 10 update?

Android 10, the tenth major version of Android, was made official by Google at its Google I/O developer conference in San Francisco on May 7, and many Galaxy smartphone owners will now be wondering if their device will be updated to Android 10. Samsung is still rolling out Android Pie to its devices, so it’s going to be some time before we get any word on the Android 10 update. Samsung will eventually be telling us what devices are eligible for the Android 10 update, but you can find out right away if your Galaxy will be on the list.

Will my Galaxy smartphone or tablet get Android 10?

Your Galaxy smartphone or tablet is likely to get Android 10 if it came with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. That’s because Samsung offers two major Android OS updates to most of its devices, which means that any Galaxy phone or tablet that was launched with Android 7.0 Nougat or earlier will not be eligible to receive Android 10. That puts flagships like the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 out of the running, even though they may be fully capable of running Android 10. The same goes for any Galaxy device launched before 2018, as it was only last year that Samsung started releasing phones with Android Oreo out of the box.

So what Galaxy devices can we expect to get Android 10? Here’s a preliminary list:

The list above is based on Samsung’s traditional update policy, and the company’s official list of eligible devices may turn out to be different. It will be a few months before that official list comes out, though, so the best way to ascertain your Galaxy phone’s Android 10 eligibility right now is by checking the version of Android it ran out of the box.

An Android 10 beta program will come at some point

Samsung should eventually launch a beta program allowing users in some countries to test Android 10 before the official stable release. Samsung ran the Android Pie beta program for quite a few devices, and we should see something similar with the Android 10 beta program. In fact, we have it on good authority that Samsung will make the beta program official in late September and then kickstart it in some countries in October. That’s a month earlier than the Pie beta program, so there’s hope that the stable Android 10 update for at least the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 will also come out earlier than Android Pie.

Devices not eligible for Android 10 will still get security updates

Even if your Galaxy smartphone or tablet isn’t getting Android 10, it will continue to receive security updates as long as it not more than three years old. Some devices that launched more than three years ago will also get security updates from time to time; most of them will get these updates only when it’s necessary, but some–like the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy A5 (2016)–will get them on a quarterly schedule even in their fourth year.

I live in the Unhappy States of America, where our Governmental Dotards want to either break up Tech Companies or slap massive tarrifs on the Tech that’s not made in our country.

Android Q is a minor concern for me at this point.

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???

Ojalá el Galaxy J4+ reciba la actualización a Android Q, sería lo justo para toda la serie J que se comercializó de principio con Android Oreo.

Si tenés la versión SM-A520F, según leí, no la van a recibir porque no serían capaces de aguantar todas las novedades que tiene el nuevo SO y la nueva capa de personalización.
Aunque según vi se actualizaron varias versiones de la línea J. Asique tené algo de esperanza la cual nunca se pierde.
