Kiss goodbye to software support for the Samsung Galaxy S10 series


Smartphone manufacturers like Samsung usually offer about 3 years worth of updates to their phones before they stop. This is why it doesn’t come as a surprise to learn that Samsung has since updated its public security update page where devices like the Samsung Galaxy S10 series have been removed.

What this means is that in terms of updates moving forwards, the Galaxy S10 lineup will not be receiving anymore updates in the future. This doesn’t mean that Samsung will never push out updates for these phones again. We have seen in the past how some companies do still push out updates for phones that are technically no longer supported, but you probably shouldn’t hold your breath.

That being said, it should be noted that this doesn’t cover all the Galaxy S10 phones. Models like the Galaxy S10 5G and the Galaxy S10 Lite are still listed as supported, although it has  been changed to quarterly updates instead, but we expect that their time will eventually come. Other phones that are also affected by this change include the Galaxy A30 and the Galaxy A50.

So, if you are still holding onto the Galaxy S10, perhaps it might be time to consider upgrading, given that the phone is now about 3 years old.
