Samsung Galaxy S10 Android 11 update stopped
Samsung recently made Android 11 available for the Galaxy S10, S10 Plus and S10e, but is now stopping the update. This website reports Sammobile. The major software upgrade would cause several issues, including issues with camera performance. Photos would not always be completely sharp. In addition, the S10, S10 Plus and S10e would consume more energy, which means that the batteries of the phones are drained faster.
If you’ve already downloaded the Android 11 update on your Galaxy S10, then you can’t and don’t need to do anything. If your S10 device is still running on Android 10, you have to wait until Samsung makes version 11 available again. Presumably, the company is working on solutions to the problems, after which the update will be released again. It is still unclear when this will happen.
Samsung has released the Android 11 update for various devices. In addition to the Galaxy S10 phones, the latest Android version is also available for users of the Samsung S20, S20 FE, Note 20 (Ultra) and Note 10 (Plus). In the coming months, the update will also appear for cheaper ones such as the Galaxy A51 and A41.
Updates for the Galaxy S10
Android 11 is the second major version update for the Galaxy S10. The device will also be updated to Android 12 in the future, because Samsung has recently provided its most important smartphones with major software updates for three years. This also means, for example, that the brand new Galaxy S21, S21 Plus and S21 Ultra up to and including Android 14 are supported.
