Samsung Android 10 OneUI 2.0 Update Roadmap
Beyond announcing the delay of the update for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ until February. The updated roadmap does not add any more smartphones to the Android 10 update schedule list. It still includes the same 35 devices that the company announced from the beginning.
The updated roadmap shows that other devices will receive the new version of Android in the coming months. For example, the Galaxy M30s and Galaxy Fold will start receiving Android 10 in April. Users coming from the Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones have run out of luck, as the devices do not appear on the updated roadmap.
