Android 11 for Samsung Galaxy S10 series
We had to wait a while, but Android 11 is finally rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy S10 models. SamMobile reports that the update is now available in Switzerland for the Samsung Galaxy S10e and the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. It is expected that Android 11 will also be available for download in the Netherlands and for other models in the series in the coming days.
Samsung already released Android 11 as a beta for the Galaxy S10 models in November, but then withdrew the update. The new software drained the battery too quickly. Those problems seem to have been resolved by now.
Samsung packs Android 11 into One UI 3.0. That is its own software dispute that the company puts over Android 11. Via the settings menu you can check under the Software tab whether the update is ready for your device.
Can you update? Then make a backup of your smartphone in advance. In the unlikely event that the installation goes wrong, you will certainly not lose any personal data. Always keep your Samsung Galaxy S10 on the charger during the process. This way you prevent the device from failing because the battery is empty. It is also wise to download the Android 11 update via WiFi: the installation file is quite large.
These are the new features in One UI 3.0
One UI 3.0 is the latest version of Samsung’s operating system, which the Korean manufacturer, as mentioned, is based on Android 11. It has been officially available since early December 2020. Many applications have a new design and the speech assistant Bixby has become a bit smarter. The camera app has also added a few options.
In addition, with Android 11 on your Samsung Galaxy S10, you have some completely new functions. Consider, for example, Chat bubbles. These are icons of conversations that remain on your home screen. This way you can respond quickly and you don’t have to open the chat app every time. Would you like to read more about the software update? Then read our extensive review of Android 11.
