The latest version of Android
is out in its stable form
(at least in theory
), but unsurprisingly, only a grand total of nine devices, including a single non-Pixel model
, can currently get a taste of the first OS build not named after a dessert
. That's right, despite its best efforts
, OnePlus wasn't able to deliver the Android 10 update
at the same time as Google, and with the exception of Xiaomi over in China as far as a handset called Redmi K20 Pro is concerned, no other manufacturer could pull off this rare feat.
But T-Mobile is apparently already "testing" Android 10 for the Galaxy S10 series
and Note 10
, which means the "Un-carrier's" official rollouts could be right around the corner. Of course, this "testing" phase could also go on for a while longer, but what's important to keep in mind here is that the updates have already moved beyond the "development" stage where the manufacturer is still "working on it."
Hence, it's possible that Samsung's work here is altogether done and now the ball is firmly in the court of the big four US carriers. If that's the case, we could see the Galaxy S10
, S10+, S10e, Note 10, and Note 10+ upgraded to Android 10 in a matter of weeks in unlocked variants available across European shores, followed by major OS promotions stateside before the end of the fall.
That's obviously just an educated guess (combined with plenty of wishful thinking), so you may want to remain cautious and skeptical of everything while waiting for confirmation from Samsung and America's largest wireless service providers.
