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.

Hang tight for more info on Samsung’s Android 10 update

Samsung’s One UI 2.0 beta program has kicked off for the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy Note 10 series. Two beta builds have been released so far as the company makes further improvements to the software ahead of its official release. The beta program is a pretty good indication that it won’t be long now before Samsung starts rolling out the official Android 10 update for its flagship devices.

Samsung releases the Galaxy S10 Android 10 update to the public

Samsung released the Android 10 update for the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10+ to the public on November 28, 2019. Germany was the first country to get it over-the-air. The firmware immediately became available for download from our firmware database.

We will be constantly updating this page and bringing you more information as the weeks and months go by, so don’t forget to bookmark this page and keep coming back to SamMobile. You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook to quickly get the latest information on Samsung’s Android 10 update.

Mam Samsunga A70 i nie jestem zadowolony z nowej aktualizacji do Androida 10. Nie działają i niektóre widgety. Np pogoda wcześniej przeciągając na widgecie z góry na dół zmieniłem miasto teraz włącza się menu. Budzik się poprzestaeial i nie mogą przełączyć na drzemkę. Reklamy na ekranie blokady się pokazują. Miało być lepiej A lepiej nie mówić.

É um absurdo, uma vergonha a pessoa gasta uma fortuna no Brasil para adquirir um Smartphone de qualidade e a fabricante “da apenas dois anos de garantia” ou seja duas atualizações de software. Não adianta dizer que é a melhor mas trata seus clientes com esse menosprezo, os celulares de ponta da linha samsung são os mais caros vendidos no país e mesmo assim eles fazem essa sacanagem com nós clientes!!!

10 has virtually bricked the wifi on my s9+. It’s become so unstable with constant DNS errors. Will go back to the last version of 9, anyone else having similar issues?

This update has made my bluetooth incompatible with my vehicle. I’ve done hard resets, for both vehicle, and phone. I have the Samsung s9+, I have had my vehicle for over a year and it never had a problem connecting and staying connected. Now it doesn’t pick up the phone at all. I’ve reset bluetooth settings in both my phone, and my vehicle and I get the same “Bluetooth connection error” this didn’t happen until I got this update now I can’t even listen to my own music or take phone calls from my car. 😒😒😒

„Qwerty7 Qwerty7 Navigator ‎08-09-2019 04:49 PM Samsung’s update policy, which means every phone gets 2 major updates MUST change. The Galaxy A8 2018 launched in January 2018 with nougat, before the s9 and Oreo while the j7 duo launched 2 months later with Oreo . This means the j7 duo, sold at exactly the same time as the A8, probably for half the price, will get android 10 while the A8 will not. Also, most A8 owners bought it after Oreo rolled out, 2-3 months later so not updating the phone to the newest version on android and making it… Read more »

My phone galaxy s10+ consumes more power at midnight while am not using it after the update. I can unplug the phone from charge at 100% at 9pm and wake in the morning at 6am to see the battery level at 70% (thats a whooping 30% drain while the phone is idle) I have turned off sync, and put off wifi and Mobile data. When I check battery usage from settings I see the graph showing 80 – 97% battery usage meanwhile there’s no third party up showing as running in the background. Mostly google play services, one UI home… Read more »

Android 10 and ONE UI 2.0 look pretty much the same as android 9.0 and ONE UI 1.0. to begin with, I received the OTA update on my Galaxy s10+ and after installation and I quickly didnt notice any visual change however there are few good and bad changes. The first thing I noticed is the fingerprint and the face unlock has become significantly faster and there has been a smooth and nice animation in app opening and closing (apps zoom out from icons to lunch and zoom in to icons to close) Samsung didnt introduce much features, the little… Read more »
