Samsung has just released the October security update for its unlocked versions of the Galaxy S10 in the US. Allegedly, the update has left North American customers unsatisfied because it comes with no new features.
In the same way, the US October update for the Galaxy Note 10 lacked new features that the same smartphones in other regions of the world received in the last couple of weeks.
For instance, the Exynos version of Galaxy Note 10 sold all over the world except in the US has gotten the September and October updates in an interval of time of two weeks. Even so, the unlocked versions of the device in the US did not receive the features that its counterparts all over the world got in September and also October with the updates.
What Were The Features Excluded For US Customers?
Some features the Galaxy smartphones all over the world got were with regards to the camera. A Reddit post says that the most recent update for the unlocked device in the US lacked AR Doodle or Live Focus, whilst the global counterparts did not. Reports from North American customers suggest that they are specific to the Galaxy Note device and that they might have never been incorporated due to security reasons.
How To Get The October Update
Owners of the unlocked Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus or Galaxy S10e smartphones can download the most recent update on their handsets using two different methods.
The first way is to go in for over-the-air (OTA) update, by navigating to ‘Settings,’ and choose the ‘Software Update’ option on their devices. The software version is dubbed ‘G97*U1UES2BSIC,’ and it has a size of 192MB.
The other method to get the October update on your device is to use the company’s firmware that is displayed in their firmware archive.
