Finally, the Android 10 update for the Samsung Galaxy S10 is now rolling out. Similar to the last year trend, Germany is the first country to receive the much-awaited update. Soon after Germany, the Galaxy 10 Android 10 update has also been released in Panama and South Korea.
Though initially, the update was only available to Galaxy S10 owners who were part of the original Android 10 beta program in Germany. However, now the OTA download is available to all Galaxy S10 owners in the country. Moreover, the One UI 2.0 brings numerous features on the Android 10 update weighing almost 1.9GB.
All the reputed companies in the smartphone industry are rolling out the latest Android updates, but Samsung is the last to release the new update. The main reason for its delay is that the company is bringing a visual overhaul to the OS and building extra security features.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Android 10 update features
The new update will have location security, enhanced privacy settings, the new gesture navigation system as well as a new Focus mode. The Dark Mode rolled out in the last version of One UI on Android 9 Pie so this feature is nothing new for the Samsung users.
