A huge list of Samsung Galaxy phones set to be updated to Android 10 just leaked

  A huge list of Samsung Galaxy phones set to be updated to Android 10 just leaked A leak earlier this week claimed that Samsung will soon release Android 10 betas for its 2019 flagships, including the Galaxy S10 series and the Note 10 series. That’s hardly surprising, considering that Samsung usually updates its latest flagships to Google’s most recent major Android version. If the rumor is correct, then the Android 10 update for the S10 and Note 10 models might drop a lot sooner than anticipated, maybe as soon as this winter. But a new leak gives us even better news: Samsung is apparently looking to update several other Android phones, although it’s unclear exactly when these devices will get Android 10.

Unless you own a Pixel, waiting for the latest Android release to hit your device can be excruciating, but anyone who picked up one of the latest flagship phones from Samsung this year won’t have to wait too much longer. On Tuesday, SamMobile reported that Google will have a beta for Android 10, and that the program will be announced toward the end of September. The first build will begin rolling out in the US and Europe in October.

We know that a wide variety of Samsung phones are slated to get Android 10 in the coming months, but the beta test should be available for Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, and Galaxy S10+ owners, as well as Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Note 10+, and Galaxy Note 10+ 5G users. We’ll know more once Google announces the beta.

Samsung phones now connect to Android Auto wirelessly

  Samsung phones now connect to Android Auto wirelessly If you've been waiting to connect your non-Google phone with wireless Android Auto, today's your lucky day. While Google initially said -- more than a year ago -- that Android Auto would work with any phone running Android 9.0 or higher, it's been restricted to its own Pixel and Nexus devices. Until now, it seems. As identified by Android Police, a Google support document has been revised to include a number of Samsung phones within Android Auto's ecosystem.The Samsung Galaxy phones now compatible with Android Auto Wireless include the Galaxy S8/S8+, S9/S9+, and S10/S10+. The Galaxy Note 8, Note 9, and Note 10 are also compatible. You'll need Android 9.

As SamMobile notes, the Galaxy S9 One UI beta with Android 9.0 Pie kicked off in November last year for the 2018 phone. Later that month, the Galaxy Note 9 was added to the beta program as well, and it seems likely that Samsung will follow a similar script this year, or possibly even add both the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 to the beta program at the same time. There’s still no evidence pointing one way or the other, though.

The beta only lasted about a month, as the first stable Android 9.0 Pie build rolled out to the Galaxy S9 on December 24th. That is as fast as a Samsung phone has ever received a new version of Android, so the hope is that Samsung will make this a habit rather than a one-time exception to the rule.
