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.

guys Its possible to flash other region software with different model ?
I have SM-A705F A705FXXU3ASG7 Indonesia and I want flash to SM-A705FN model with newest software and security patch.

I suggest not to do so because the letters F vs. FN imply that it’s a slightly different variant of the device for example another RAM configuration so flashing FN software on the F Variant is probably not a good idea.

Why won’t Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) get Android 10?

tthalheim

It was launched with Android 7 out of the box, got Android 8 and 9 via OTA update and is not eligible for another one as per Samsung’s normal strategy. So unless Samsung changes it’s routine of 2 major updates per device it won’t get Android 10.

Really disappointed to heard that why won’t flagship phones of 2017 in 2019 latest update of Android 10 like Galaxy S8/S8+ and the Galaxy Note8 they may be fully capable of running Android 10?
Users and fans will definitely appreciate if Samsung support updates atleast 3 years of Android versions.

They are fully capable of handling with the last software update.
It’s not Samsung’s fault, I think; they’ll be pushing this update some where next year thanks to people pushing all over the world.
It happened with Pie on some A5 17 (that is fully capable of running it). I strongly think that Android 10 is coming to S8/S8+/Note8.

The A5 2017 only got pie in Korea because Samsung launched it with Android 7 there and not Android 6 like everywhere else.
