Over two days ago, we heard the first tidbits about the upcoming Android 10 update for the Galaxy S10 series. This update will come in the form of One UI 2.0. Currently, One UI is Samsung’s most successful attempt in making an enjoyable Android skin. According to initial reports, all Galaxy S10 devices enrolled in the beta program would start to receive the referred update today. However, seems that it won’t be the case at all. According to a Samsung representative, the One UI 2.0 launch date has been pushed back to mid-October. If that is indeed the case, it also means that the international release will also take some time.
