Samsung Galaxy S10 5G users are in for a treat as the company has released a new update for their devices. However, the update comes with a bittersweet revelation that support for other S10 models is ending. And the Galaxy S10 5G models, users will have to bid farewell to software updates and security patches. Because the device has now left the Monthly Security Updates list and it has slipped to the Quarterly Security list. This means that now its security updates will be available every three months.
Samsung currently provides five years of official security updates to all its devices. This policy applies to start with the Galaxy S21. For previous models, we stop at four years of support. And that’s just what’s happening to the Galaxy S10 series.
The Samsung flagship series launched in 2019 has just definitively hailed official updates from the manufacturer. The Galaxy S10, S10e, and S10+ models will no longer receive periodic security updates from Samsung. All of these devices were released in the same period of 2019. However, the quarterly support program is still valid for the Galaxy S10 5G and Galaxy S10 Lite, as they were later launched on the market.
