There has been much anticipation regarding the roll-out of Samsung’s Android 10 One UI update for quite some time.
A lot of the major smartphone manufacturers, including OnePlus, Huawei, and Xiaomi, have already released an Android 10 update.
The wait is finally over for Samsung users as well.
According to the official update roadmap released by the Korean tech giant, the Android 10 update for all Samsung devices, including the Galaxy S10, S10e, S10+, and even the A series and the M series, would be pushed in January 2020.
However, a stable One UI 2.0 update based on Android 10 is already available to German users.
But, the update is only available to those users who are a part of the beta testing program. The actual stable update will take some time before it reaches your smartphone.
What Can Users Expect?
Samsung will begin pushing the One UI 2.0 update only to flagship device owners initially.
Later, the update will be available to all Samsung smartphone users.
Users can expect a lot of changes to the original One UI.
The One UI 2.0 uses the newly released Android 10 OS, which means users can expect a neater user interface, better security features, fewer intrusive pop-ups, and an all-round smoother experience.
Other features users can expect from the update include a smarter layout, full-screen gestures, and a system-wide dark mode.
There would also be changes made to default Samsung apps such as Samsung Notes, Samsung Health, Calculator, Calendar, and Samsung Internet, which the Samsung users can install separately after updating their devices to Android 10.
Although Samsung had initially announced that the One UI 2.0 update would only be available in January 2020, Samsung has managed to roll-out the Android 10 based update for devices like the Samsung Galaxy M20 and M30 in December itself.
Samsung Galaxy M30 received build numbered M305FDDU3CSL4, whereas the Galaxy M20 has received a different build numbered M205FDDU3CSL4.
The early roll-out by Samsung implies that there will be more updates released in the coming months to polish the software for different devices further.
