Last month, Google officially announced its latest Android 10 software with improved features for its Pixel devices. Sooner, various smartphone makers such as OnePlus joined the suit offering an early taste of the new software. Surprisingly, Samsung is now among those brands which managed to deliver the latest Android update in a relatively less time period. Well, the South Korean giant is known for delivering slower software updates, generally taking a couple of months. It seems like the smartphone maker wants to fix that bad reputation this year.

Gizchina News of the week
This report comes courtesy of PhoneArena which, earlier today, posted a tweet showcasing the changelog of the update. As per the tweet, Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus has now started receiving Android 10 with One UI 2.0 on board. This is the first time that the brand was kind enough to roll out a new Android version in just one month and one week since the official release by Google. Furthermore, the changelog mentions the latest October Security Patch along with One UI 2.0. The update weighs around 1.8GB in size and comes with the version number G975FXXU3ZSJ6. You can see the other two versions in the image above.
Back to the changelog, the Android 10 One UI 2.0 update brings the following new and improved features:
- Full-screen gestures
- Enhanced one-handed mode
- New Media & Devices
- Enhanced Biometrics
- New Battery usage graph
- Improved Digital Wellbeing
- Enhanced Samsung Internet, Contacts, Calendar, Reminder, My Files, Calculator
- Android Auto is now preloaded
- Removed Android Beam
Sadly, there is no word on the region where this new Android update is rolling out. Since one of the version numbers contains OXM which is a European multi-CSC suggesting that the update has started hitting the European market. Furthermore, the version number also contains Z which suggests that this is indeed a beta update. Looking at the previous trend, we’re speculating Germany as the region since the country has always been the first one to receive Android updates in Europe.
