Samsung removes Galaxy S10 series from active software support list

Part of the Galaxy S10 series of smartphones has reached the end of its “life”, at least in terms of software support. Samsung altered the page where it lists phones still receiving software updates to remove phones that have reached the end of their originally promised support period. The S10 models, released in 2019, received four years of security updates, and now they won’t receive another official update from Samsung.

Galaxy S10 flagship models, from 2019, no longer receive updates

The Galaxy S10e, S10 and S10+ were not included on the list of devices that receive five years of security updates and four years of system updates. Thus, these models were far behind other recent models from the company anyway, which are now running Android 13 with OneUI 5.1. It appears, however, that a few S10 devices remain on the supported list, among those that arrived on the market later.

The launch of the main S10 series came in spring 2019, but models like the Galaxy S10 5G, a 5G modem-equipped variant, something the earlier models didn’t offer, came out sometime through the summer, while the Galaxy S10 Lite was released in late 2019 in some regions and early 2020 in others. Those will likely get more updates until 4 years after launch.

Along with the S10 series, Samsung has also removed two other mid-range devices from the official support list. These are the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50, also released around the same time.

All Samsung S, Note and Z series phones released after 2020 get extended support for up to 5 years, while most mid-range Galaxy A models released after 2021 get the same treatment. Basically, only regional series such as the Galaxy F or M series and entry-level A series models get shorter software support.
