The flagship Galaxy S10 lineup from South Korean electronics giant Samsung has started receiving its first software update. This update comes just about a week after the company revealed the device at the launch event in San Francisco. This update comes even before the devices are set to go on sale across the globe.

According to the changelog of the new update, the company is rolling out the Bixby remapping feature to the Galaxy S10, a feature that was highlighted during the launch. The update package is about 496.25MB in size for the Samsung Galaxy S10+ and brings the version number to G975FXXU1ASBA, G975FOXM1ASBA, or G975FXXU1ASBA depending on the market where the device will be sold.
