Samsung continues improving their update game with the imminent rollout of Android 10 to Canadians only three months after its initial launch, with the One UI 2.0 refresh in tow.
Gone are the days of Samsung taking inordinate half-dozens of months and even longer to update their phones (hopefully permanently) with the company having steadily hacked down their update delays over the last two years; their flagship Galaxy S9 series began receiving stable Android Pie four months after the software’s launch and the S10 series is now starting to receive Android 10 a month faster, in part of the world.
Samsung’s stable One UI 2.0 skin based on Google‘s latest Android 10 began rolling out to German customers a few days ago (while a beta exists for other parts of the world including the US), and Samsung have announced that in only a couple of days, on December 16th, Canadian Galaxy S10 users will begin receiving the update to, starting with Telus customers apparently. Both Canadian and German variants of the Galaxy S10 use the same Exynos 9820 chip, versus America which uses the Snapdragon 855.
And just for a quick refresher: neither Android 10 nor Samsung’s version 2.0 update of their (surprisingly) popular One UI skin implement any significant user-facing changes, but each attempt to refine what already existed – extending battery life in particular.
Samsung hasn’t explicitly stated when the rollout will hit every Canadian customer, nor many other parts of the world other than Germany. American Galaxy S10 users should expect the update in early January, with other countries and the Note 10 to follow shortly after.
