Samsung is working hard on its Android 10 update, and it seems like it’s going to roll out sooner than ever before. However, there’s an update list for Samsung’s Android 10 update floating around the internet this week, and we hate to tell you, but it’s not real.
A leak earlier this week claimed that Samsung will soon release Android 10 betas for its 2019 flagships, including the Galaxy S10 series and the Note 10 series. That’s hardly surprising, considering that Samsung usually updates its latest flagships to Google’s most recent major Android version. If the rumor is correct, then the Android 10 update for the S10 and Note 10 models might drop a lot sooner than anticipated, maybe as soon as this winter. But a new leak gives us even better news: Samsung is apparently looking to update several other Android phones, although it’s unclear exactly when these devices will get Android 10.
Samsung devices haven’t historically been the quickest to receive OS updates. This week, Android 9 Pie came to the T-Mobile variant of the extra-durable Galaxy S8 Active, nearly a year and a half after the Oreo update.
The update, which has baseband version number G892USQU5CSG7, comes with all the normal Pie improvements, like optional two-button navigation. It also includes the July security patch, as well as “other improvements,” according to T-Mobile’s support page. Read More
Android 10 is here, bereft of any colorful desert name — but many devices are still catching up on the previous version, Android 9 Pie. Such is the state of 2017’s LG V30, the Verizon variant of which has recently started receiving the update.
Several users on the LG V30 subreddit (turns out that yes, there’s an LG V30 subreddit) have reported that their devices have made the jump to Pie, and we’ve received direct reports, as well. Read More
