Samsung software support ended for the Galaxy Note 10 series, and more

Published

on


Samsung has recently published the September 2023 security bulletin, which will be soon distributed to eligible Galaxy devices, but unfortunately, the Galaxy Note 10, Note 10 5G, Note 10+ and Note 10+ 5G will not be eligible for it. The company has kicked them out of the update cycle.

The Galaxy Note 10 was introduced back in 2019, and the device came with Android 9 preinstalled. Later, the device got new updates and is now running on Android 12, which is the last major update; however, as Samsung promised, the device has received some more software updates that are coming this year. However, now that the device is older than four years, the company has decided to stop the update for it.

For your information, the European units of the Galaxy Note 10 series got the July 2023 security update as their last patch, which doesn’t bring any novelty to the device. On the other hand, the US units of these devices got the August 2023 security patch. But now Samsung will not give any new security patches to the devices; this is confirmed by its official documentation of security updates. The company has removed them from the quarterly update category list.

Samsung Galaxy Note Lite will continue to get quarterly security updates

However, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite is still eligible for new updates. The reason behind this is that the Lite version came almost five months later than the main series, and due to this, the device update cycle is also extended for some more months. Lastly, Samsung has updated the device with the June 2023 security patch, and as the device belongs to the quarterly update category, it may get at least one more update this year.

Some other Galaxy devices will also not have new updates

By following the same policy of three-year OS updates and four-year security updates, the company has also kicked out some more Galaxy devices from the update cycle that were launched in the same year or after the Galaxy Note 10. The Galaxy Xcover Field Pro and Galaxy A10s

Samsung has also changed the frequency of updates for these devices

Samsung has also changed the frequency of updates for two Galaxy devices, including the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and Galaxy M21 (2021). If we talk about the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Samsung has degraded the device from the monthly update category to a quarterly update, which means the device will be eligible to get only four software updates per year. While the Galaxy M21 was listed under the quarterly update category, which is now downgraded to a biannual update, it indicated the device will only get two software updates for security maintenance.

For Samsung’s foldable enthusiasts, especially those who are eagerly waiting for the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6, here’s a small glimpse for you. 

Leaks and rumors always spoil the surprises regarding upcoming Galaxy devices that Samsung hides for its big events, such as Galaxy Unpacked. The same case has happened for the Galaxy Z Fold 6 unit since rumors unveiled a small glimpse of what looks like a real Galaxy Z Fold 6. A leaked image showcases the actual look of the device. 

However, in the image, only the top of the smartphone is visible, so there’s not enough to guess more here, but something is better than nothing, as this image confirms that the Galaxy Z Fold 6’s design will be flatter and also have sharper edges and corners as compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 5. It seems that the phone has a wider cover screen. That could just be a result of the angle at which the photo was taken, but there have been tons of indicators that Samsung is putting a certain extent of a of a larger cover display on the next Fold, and now the image appears to confirm that.

The Korean giant is also rumored to be working on a Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim that will have a fair measurement of larger displays on the inside and outside while also having a thinner profile. This variant is expected to arrive by the end of this year. The Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 are on their way to make their debuts at the Galaxy Unpacked Event on July 10.

Galaxy S25 Ultra to Feature First 50MP Ultrawide Since Galaxy S10

Samsung Galaxy enthusiasts, especially those who are photography-addicted too, get ready for the biggest camera upgrade ever on the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra

Before even any official statement release or launch, dozens of leaks and rumors are blowing in the market regarding Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S25 series, which is supposed to arrive in early 2025. Now the new report is hinting at a major camera upgrade. 

If the new report is to be believed, the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultra-wide camera. Samsung launched its Galaxy S10 series back in 2019, and from then to the recently launched Galaxy S24 series, none of them features a 50MP ultrawide camera yet. Fortunately, if this report comes true, then the Galaxy S25 Ultra will be the first Galaxy device with a higher resolution ultrawide since the sensor was introduced. 

This is being speculated by a post on X shared by a tipster who claims that the Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultrawide camera, and it will be the first Galaxy device with this high resolution since the sensor was introduced to the lineup initially with the Galaxy S10 series. The recently launched Galaxy S24 Ultra has a 12 MP ultrawide camera, and its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, also has a 12 MP ultrawide camera.

Apart from this, it was also reported recently that the Galaxy S25 Ultra could feature 8K recording across all rear cameras.

The image has a Samsung Galaxy AI watermark which points out that it might be made changes, however, it’s best to wait for more confirmation before trusting this particular design detail since the brand has yet to reveal any official details.
