Out of beta: Samsung starts rolling out Android 10 to the Galaxy S10

Samsung’s 2019 flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S10, is the first device to receive Android 10.

The device, which was also the very first to be enrolled in the company’s ongoing Android 10 beta programme, is getting the stable release in Germany.

Other devices in the Galaxy S10 family, the Galaxy S10e and Galaxy S10+, are expected to follow suit, at least over the air, very soon. A flashable version of the software is already available for the said devices.

It is not yet clear where else the update, which is available over the air and continues rolling out in Germany, will be headed. Fingers crossed that it hits Kenya soon – hopefully before Christmas.

The update arrives with the December security patch.

The update is just under 2GB while for those that are moving from the beta channel to the stable fold, it’s just under 140MB.

Just a few days ago, Samsung started sharing its Android 10 update roadmap through the Samsung Members application in several countries resulting in conflicting update roadmaps hitting the internet simultaneously.

Currently, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Note 9, and Galaxy S9 are the other devices, besides those in the Galaxy S10 family, that have access to Samsung’s Android 10 beta programme. The beta programme is only limited to users in a handful of countries.

Prior to the news of Samsung’s Android 10 hitting the stable release channel breaking, the company had diligently released test build after test build a few days apart, to the devices currently enrolled in the beta.
