No more software support for Galaxy S10 series and Galaxy A50

With the release of April 2023 security patches, Samsung drops support for several of its popular smartphones from 2019. Three of them are premium devices, while the remaining one is a mid-range

The phones we are talking about are Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus, Galaxy S10e, and Galaxy A50. These handsets will no longer receive software updates.

All the aforementioned products were released in the first quarter of 2019. They debuted with the original version of One UI based on Android 9.0 Pie.

The Galaxy A50 only received up to Android 11 throughout its support period. On the other hand, the Galaxy S10 series boots Android 12. Anyways, they got up to four years’ worth of security update coverage.

Interestingly, the Galaxy S10 5G is still eligible for quarterly security updates though it launched around the same time. Further, the Galaxy S10 Lite will continue to receive one more year of security updates. 

That’s because the S10 Lite was released almost a year after the debut of the original S10 family. It even got access to the Android 13 update as it was introduced with Android 10.

That said, even though Samsung has ended the software support, these phones should work as usual without any issues. You may want to upgrade only if you feel the device is not keeping up with your usage.
