Verizon Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10e OTA Update Now Arriving

Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus and Galaxy S10e are now receiving a new software update. Verizon is rolling out its second OTA (Over-the-air) update today and is the first major carrier in the US to update the Galaxy S10e whereas S10e wasn’t receiving much attention before, compared to other versions of Galaxy S10.

This update improves the issues which came along the first update. Some select cases reported issues with the fingerprint sensor and the camera performance. Hopefully, the second update is going to sort these issues out so if you’re a Verizon Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e or Galaxy S10 Plus user, you can update immediately and resolve any persistent bugs.

Verizon Software Update - Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10e

Verizon Galaxy S10 / Galaxy S10+ / Galaxy S10e Software Update

New software being pushed to Verizon Galaxy S10 series phones brings in performance improvements, enhanced reliability and greater security. There aren’t any major changes except for bug-fixes and enhancements. Further, security patch level for this update is March 2019. We expect another update to arrive for April later this month.

Verizon is on top in the US according to subscriber count in 2018. It is also the first major carrier delivering this update to its users for Samsung Galaxy S10e. Further, in terms of network connectivity, only two cities: Chicago & Minneapolis, in the US, currently run 5G network provided by Verizon. The bad part is that it will only be available on devices like Moto Z3 with 5G Moto Mod or Galaxy S10 5G, the fourth in line. For Samsung Galaxy, S10 5G pre-orders are opening on April 18, 2019 whereas deliveries will start on May 16, 2019, the official date of release for the public.

By the end of this year, Chicago and Minneapolis would not be the only cities running Verizon 5G. The brand is planning to spread 5G to 30 cities in 2019. To get onto the 5G network, there is a $10 additional cost on top of Verizon’s unlimited data plan.
