Samsung is a little known for delayed updates of Android, especially compared to OEMs such as OnePlus. The company has its own valid reasons however. They have to work a lot more on their custom skin and have a lot more devices to update. Even then, the Korean giant had managed to propel Android Pie updates to 30 of its devices, which is nevertheless impressive.
Now that Android 10 is out, many Samsung users probably want to know if they will get the Android 10 update. So here are the new features of the update as well as the devices that you can hope to see put up to date.
OneUI 2.0 – Android 10 update for Samsung devices
With Android 9.0 Pie, Samsung has introduced a new software design called OneUI. Recently, an 11-minute video of Android 10 running on the Samsung Galaxy S10 + was leaked. The Android 10 update apparently comes with an updated version of OneUI, also called OneUI 2.0.
One of the big changes is the inclusion of Android 10 navigation actions. Although not everyone is a fan, Samsung offers the ability to switch from one gesture to another. So while there are options, and that's all of Android's options, it's nice to see at least some consistency between Android devices at the moment. Last year's Android pie gestures, for example, were not present on Samsung devices.

Another change with the Android 10 update for Samsung Galaxy devices is the quick settings. With OneUI, Samsung has made the use of one hand the determining factor of its design. As such, all quick-change scales have been fully lowered.
This year, Samsung uses the entire screen. On the one hand, it's good because you get faster settings on a page. But on the other hand, you must now use the other hand to reach the summit.
Creative people can easily solve this problem by rearranging their more used down. But again, only the first 6 hotkeys appear in the notification area for quick access.
Android 10 makes many changes to security and privacy settings and Samsung makes sure not to delete them. It is therefore safe to assume that the Android 10 update for Samsung Galaxy devices will bring additional privacy and permissions controls and will change the settings in an easily accessible way.
List of Samsung devices to get the Android 10 update
With so many devices launched during the year, it is quite difficult to follow, not to mention the advanced updates. But Samsung has generally been able to bring two major Android updates to market, despite the unusually long wait times for some of them.
Therefore, it is reasonable to expect the company to bring the Android 10 update to Samsung Galaxy devices that have not yet completed their two-year cycle. The list below includes these devices.
- S Series: Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 +, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9 +

Be aware, however, that Samsung has not officially announced the update of OneUI 2.0, update to Android 10, apart from a video leak. So this list could potentially change. In any case, we will keep it updated as new information becomes available.
