The South Korean tech giant Samsung has a wide variety of smartphones catering to the need of a wide range of masses. They have smartphones in the budget segment, as well as in the mid-range and flagship tier segment. One thing that is common in all these devices is the regular software updates. Samsung promises a minimum of two years of regular Android updates and security patch updates. The update starts rolling out, starting from the most expensive lineup to the budget segment. The top series that Samsung has on offer for us is the Samsung S and the Note series.
We have the Samsung S10, Samsung S10+, and the Samsung S10e starting from a base price of whopping 749 USD. Now the June security patch update for the S10 series is out, and it is gradually being pushed out to all the users worldwide. Samsung S10 lineup uses two different processors for different countries. The US and Chinese variant of the S10 series come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 while the international variant comes with the Exynos 9820. The build numbers for the new firmware update for the Samsung S10, S10+, and S10e are SM-G973FXXS6CTE6, SM-G975FXXS6CTE6, and SM-G970FXXS6CTE6 respectively. And as of now, all the US variants of the S10 series have received this update.
Gradual update rollout starting from Germany:
Starting from Tuesday, Samsung has started pushing out the update for the Exynos powered S10 devices in Germany. Soon the update will be pushed out to all the countries worldwide, which have the Exynos 9820 powered Samsung S10 devices. Monthly security patch updates are the norm across the industry, especially for OEMs like Samsung and Oneplus, who take a lot of pride in their software. These regular updates allow the manufacturers to fix the bugs that they were unable to iron out during the development entirely. It also gives them the flexibility to add specific features later on to their devices that could be useful to the end consumer.
