Samsung is committed to supporting its users to fully enjoy the latest mobile experiences while they are using Galaxy devices, thanks to Samsung’s new Android update policy. Last year, the company announced that it will deliver three major Android updates to the flagship devices and select A-series phones launched in/after 2019.
Before the revision of the Android update policy, the South Korean tech giant has committed to deliver at least two generations of Android update support to every single smartphone and tablet. As we know, Samsung launched the Galaxy S10 series in early 2019. Later on, the company unveiled the Galaxy Note 10 lineup in the second half of 2019.
Both of the Galaxy Note 10 and S10 series phones come pre-packed with the Android 9 operating system. Further, they have also received the Android 10 changes via firmware over the air. Furthermore, the Galaxy Note 10 models have started getting their second Android update that is the Android 11 back in December 2020, while the Galaxy S10 units are receiving this version of Android from early January 2021.
As per the official software update guarantee, the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 series models are eligible to get one more Android upgrade. In detail, the Galaxy Note 10, Note 10+, S10e, S10, and S10+ will receive the Android 12 version later this year or early next year to complete their major Android update lifecycle.
Apart from the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 flagships, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite and Galaxy S10 Lite also support 3 generations of Android OS upgrades. It is worth mentioning that the Korean tech giant will also roll out the One UI 3.1 and One UI 3.5 features to these handsets before the Android 12-based One UI 4.0.
