The Samsung Galaxy S10 series is receiving the August 2022 Android security patch. All three Galaxy S10 models—the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10—are receiving the most recent security patch. Users in Germany, Greece, Switzerland, and a few other nations have been among the first to receive SamMobile reports as the distribution has started in Europe. In the upcoming days, it will progressively spread to other countries, including the US.
The firmware version G97xFXXSGHVH2 is included in the most recent update for the Galaxy S10 series in Europe. Even while we don’t have a changelog on hand to confirm the software package’s contents, it probably simply contains this month’s vulnerability fixes. There is little reason to believe that the nearly four-year-old Galaxies will soon acquire new functionality.
There is a lot to discuss when it comes to fixing vulnerabilities. Over 60 privacy and security vulnerabilities have been fixed in the August SMR (Security Maintenance Release), according to a statement made by Samsung earlier this month. All vulnerable Android products are impacted by about half of these problems with the Android OS. These flaws were corrected by Google, who classified one of them as a critical bug. It made it possible for remote attackers to execute code on your device via Bluetooth, potentially taking control of it.
Advertisement Only Samsung’s Android-based products, such as smartphones and tablets, were impacted by the additional 30 or so issues that the August SMR resolved. Numerous of these problems were also serious weaknesses that compromised Samsung DeX, Knox VPN, Bluetooth, NFC, Wi-Fi, and other components.
These security updates should be available soon if you use a Galaxy S10 smartphone in Europe. Now, users in additional locations may anticipate the newest security update. When the OTA (over the air) update arrives on your phone, you will be informed. From the Settings app, you may manually check for updates as well.
THE ANDROID 13 UPDATE WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR THE GALAXY S10 SERIES The Galaxy S10 trio was introduced by Samsung in February 2019. Following updates to Android 10, Android 11, and Android 12, the phones originally shipped with Android 9 Pie installed. Sadly, they are not eligible for Samsung’s freshly expanded software policy, which guarantees four significant Android OS updates for flagship models. As a result, Android 12 will be the final operating system for the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10. None of them will receive Android 13, which was just made available through AOSP (Android Open Source Project). In addition to its One UI 5.0, Samsung is anticipated to start releasing the upgrade to compatible smartphones in October of this year.
