Samsung has been on a roll lately when it comes to updating its flagships, both current and previous generation. After treating the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy Note 20 series with Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update, and later showering some love on its foldable phones too, it’s time for the Galaxy S10 series to get a software upgrade. Samsung had originally announced plans to bring the Android 11 upgrade for the Galaxy S10 series in January 2021, and is finally making good on its promise.
