Verizon’s latest list of smartphones to receive software updates has all the variants of the Samsung Galaxy S10 in addition to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and 8-inch Galaxy Tab A.
Verizon has indicated on its site that of the six devices getting the updates in this lot, three are being provided with the support for Verizon’s multi line business solution One Talk. These three get some performance improvement updates as well. Apart from these, all six devices will receive the latest Android security patches. Here are the details.
Samsung Galaxy S10
The main component of this 4th update that the Samsung Galaxy S10 receives from Verizon is the June patch released by Google as the security update for the Android OS. As mentioned above, there are performance improvements and the One Talk support included in this package of updates.
Samsung Galaxy S10+
The Verizon update for this 2019 release Samsung Galaxy S10+ is identical with the one being sent to the Samsung Galaxy S10 as described above. The components are the same; performance improvements, One Talk support as well as the June 2019 Android security update patch.
Samsung Galaxy S10e
In some ways the Samsung Galaxy S10e is Samsung’s answer to the iPhone XR model. This variant has the essential features of the other two variants but is priced a little lower. It is assumed the suffix ‘e’ comes from ‘essential’. The Samsung Galaxy S10e is the third device being featured here with the One Talk support, performance improvements and the customary Android security patch.
Samsung Galaxy S10 5G
The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is one of latest releases from Samsung in the premium segment and this is the first update for this phone from Verizon. The only change being brought about with this update is the latest (June) security patch for the Android OS.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 & Galaxy Tab A 8.0
This 9th Verizon update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 also has only the June Android security patch and nothing else. Mid-range 8-inch galaxy tablet, Tab A 8.0 is getting its 5th Verizon update, which also includes only the security patch update dated June 1, 2019.
As usual, all these are OTA updates and if you own any of these models, check if the updates have been received and installed. You should ensure your phone has sufficient battery life left. You are also advised on each occasion to make sure there is a Wi-Fi connection available.
