Samsung sort of confirms that last year's Galaxy S10 will get Android 11

Samsung sort of confirms that last year's Galaxy S10 will get Android 11

Yay, the Galaxy S10 is confirmed to get Android 11.

Earlier today when Samsung announced its new Galaxy Note 20 series, the Korean company also promised to 'support three generations of Android updates' for its Galaxy phones — more specifically, for the Galaxy S, Note and Z series. Before this, Samsung only promised two years of updates, and that’s even for its most expensive phones.

But from which phone does this new 3-year support apply to?

As noted by SamMobile, there’s a fine print in the virtual Unpacked presentation that stated that this is for ‘flagship models from Galaxy S10 (Android 9) or later’. As such, it’s almost certain that the S series flagship from early 2019 — the Galaxy S10 — will be getting one more Android OS update, which is the upcoming Android 11. The phone should also qualify for Samsung’s One UI 2.5.

And going by this logic, the original Galaxy Fold, which was also announced in Feb last year, should be getting Android 11, too. Then again, since the Fold 1 only went on sale in Sep, does this mean it has an outside chance to get Android 12? Hmmm...
