When will my Samsung phone get the Android 10 update?

Samsung usually takes its time to roll out the latest operating system — here’s all the information we have so far on its Android 10 schedule.

You might be wondering by now when — or if — your Samsung Galaxy phone will get Android 10, which was released back in early September. Scroll down to find out all the latest information on which Samsung phones will be getting updated.

Samsung Android 10 Beta

Samsung recently announced a beta programme inviting select users of the Galaxy S10 series to be the first to test out the new One UI 2.0 update on their smartphones. The beta is now open in the UK, if you’re interested in being one of the first S10 users to have a go at Android 10 and to have your say on the update, you can register within the Samsung members app now.

On October 21, Samsung revealed that it has plans to add the Galaxy Note 10 to its Android 10 beta. The company told the Korean community forum that it could look forward to downloading One UI 2.0 on the regular Note 10, Galaxy Note 10 Plus and Galaxy Note 10 5G in the near future.

The OS will also feature new digital wellness features as well as a more advanced dark mode and a smarter lock screen to automatically adjust colours to preserve your battery and to keep your text and icons visible.
