T-Mobile clarifies stance on Android 10 update for Galaxy S10 and Note 10
It's been almost a week since we reported that Android 10 updates for T-Mobile's Galaxy S10 and Note 10 are closer than we might think. Unfortunately, the US carrier has refreshed the support pages and added new information about the upcoming Android 10 updates for Samsung's flagships.

Although T-Mobile claimed last week it was already testing Android 10 for Galaxy S10 and Note 10 series, the Un-carrier now says that the update is in “development.” This means that the update has been pushed back by at least a few months, a rather disappointing turn of events for Samsung fans.

Development is the first stage of preparing a major Android OS update before it goes live, and almost always it takes many months until the update reaches “testing” status. Even though we hope T-Mobile will work fast on this one, we doubt Android 10 for Galaxy S10 and Note 10 will be released by the end of the year.

Currently, Android 10 is available for Google's Pixel phones and, surprisingly, the Essential Phone. OnePlus is trying to deliver the update to some of its flagship killers as well, but it's not quite there yet.

It wasn't pushed back, they just had the wrong phase posted. The beta will come out soon and final will be out by January. It has been this same timeline for Galaxy for the last few years...

Did Tmobile actually make the claim? I don't remember any official statement, and it was silly to think any carrier would have accelerated their update cycle by six months. I called it when the "news" was first reported: December/January at the earliest.

Just get a Pixel device and skip your carriers crappy update policies.

Have you seen the issues Pixel owners are having with the update? Not everyone needs to be a beta tester.

When I had the S9, I used to think "No, they are working on it to be better and bug free (or something like that)", But I actually was pissed because it took a lot to receive and there's always some bugs here and there. But now I have the Pixel 3 and I am actually happy to receive it faster. Android 10 is the best update so far.

No good rushing the update out if its buggy, i predict update before end of year. Lets face it most people will not notice much difference anyway.
