Pre-orders for the Galaxy S10 have been open for a while and begin shipping on March 7, and it seems Samsung is preparing the final software that the public will use with the first update released.
For a company that is notoriously slow with pushing software updates to its devices, Samsung has bundled a number of bug fixes, stability improvements, and some new features in the first software update for the Galaxy S10+.
In addition to enabling the option to remap the Bixby button to launch another app, the update also fixes five critical and a number of high-risk vulnerabilities relevant to the Android OS, with some bugs also fixed that are relevant to One UI.
Samsung Galaxy S10+ update changelog
- The stability of the Camera has been improved.
- The performance of Fingerprint Recognition has been improved.
- Added feature to set the application or function which runs when the Bixby key is pressed.
- February Security Patch
- Instagram Mode
The biggest feature brought by this new update is Instagram Mode, which uses the new Open Camera API. The exclusive feature allows users to upload and share pictures to their Instagram stories directly from the native Samsung Camera app. For those watching the Unpacked live stream, it was something DJ Koh was particularly excited about demoing.
Since the Galaxy S10+ hasn’t yet shipped, only those who are lucky enough to have a review unit or early access will get the update and we suspect the update will come pre-installed when the device ships.
