The Samsung Galaxy S10 series launched back in February 2019. The Galaxy S10 series includes four models – Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ (Galaxy S10 Plus), and Galaxy S10e. These models arrived with One UI 1.1 based on Android 9 Pie. But now the question is will the Galaxy S10 series get the latest Android 13 update?
Will Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e get Android 13 (One UI 5) Update?
- Samsung Galaxy S10 series (Galaxy S10, S10+, S10e) users will not be able to use the latest Android 13 update based on One UI 5.
Update: Samsung Android 13 (One UI 5) open beta program is live for Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra in the United States, Germany and South Korea. If you own an S22 model, visit the Samsung Members app and join the beta program.
It is almost confirmed that the latest Android 13 will come shortly. But the Galaxy S10 series will not get the Android 13 (One UI 5) updates. Samsung recently released the Android 12 (One UI 4.1) OS upgrade for the Galaxy S10 series phones worldwide. These models have received three major Android updates- 10,11, and 12. According to the new Samsung update policy, the Galaxy S10 series devices were compatible with three major updates alongside four years of regular security updates.
All Galaxy S10 series models – Galaxy S10, S10+ (Galaxy S10 Plus), and S10e are currently running on their third major software update. Many reliable sources have confirmed that the Android 12 update could be the last software update for the Galaxy S10 series. It is almost clear that these Galaxy S10 series have to spend their entire life on One UI 4.1 based on Android 12 OS.
However, nothing is official yet. Samsung has not given any such conformation about it till today. So, there is a little hope. Rumours say that the Samsung Galaxy S22 series will be the first one to get the latest Android 13 update based on One UI 5. Anyways, after the official release of the Android 13 OS, we will get to know everything about which phones will get the update and which will not. Till then, we have to wait.
It should be noted the affordable models of the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 are luckier as they are still compatible with the Android 13 (One UI 5) update.
All S10 models came with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, but in Europe and other parts of the world, we saw Exynos 9820 powered S10 lineup.
If you want to use the latest Android 13 OS or more software updates, we recommend switching to the new Galaxy devices. But, if you are a casual user and do not care about the software updates, then the Galaxy S10 series should work fine for you.
