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.

A few phones can now get the Android 10 update , the newest of Google's operating systems, including the Google Pixel handsets, several OnePlus phones , and a few more devices that have Android 10 betas available. However, it looks like that list could get a whole lot larger by the end of

The Android 10 update is very close to being ready for non-Pixel phones . Let's take a look at when you should expect it to arrive on your device. The OnePlus 6T launched with Android 9 Pie pre-installed, while the OnePlus 5, 5T, and 6 received the update by the end of the year .

We know this because Google has confirmed a list of manufacturers who will have Android 10 on at least some of their devices by the end of 2019. It did so in an Android Developers blog post, which discusses Google's efforts to increase the speed at which people update their Android version.

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.

The list includes lots of companies we'd expect. The fact that some Samsung phones and Sony phones will be updated to Android 10 shortly is no big news, given that they're popular manufacturers of flagship handsets, and since many people own LG phones and Motorola phones, it's no wonder they're on the list too.

There are a few notable omissions too. Xiaomi and Essential aren't on the list because they've already got Android 10, or its beta, on their devices, but it's noteworthy that there are no Huawei phones mentioned. We were expecting some Huawei phones to be getting the Android 10 update very soon, but according to Google this isn't the case.

Google finds Android zero day that can take control of Pixel and Galaxy devices

  Google finds Android zero day that can take control of Pixel and Galaxy devices Affecting devices from Samsung, Huawei, and Google itselfInstances of the exploit being used in the real world were discovered by Google’s Threat Analysis Group, which suggests that the exploit may have been used or sold by the NSO Group, an Israeli-based spyware vendor which was most recently behind a piece of spyware that can be injected into a phone via a WhatsApp call. The Verge has contacted the NSO Group for comment and will update this piece if it responds.

Samsung may not want to say it to its customers officially, but if we are to be believe Google, the Korean giant will release the stable Android 10 update for some devices before 2020. Google, in a post on its Android developers blog about how Project Treble has helped make adoption of newer

There's also no mention of Nokia phones in the list but that's likely because the Nokia 8.1 has just started getting the update. Nokia claimed some of its handsets would have the Android 10 update from day one, but that turned out not to be the case – still, at least one is now getting it.

Bear in mind that while all the listed manufacturers will have phones running Android 10 by the end of the year, that doesn't mean all their phones will have it, so if you've got a device that's a few years old now, you might be waiting longer for the newer operating system (if you get it at all).

Android 10 is finally starting to roll out for Galaxy S10 and Note 10 devices .
When Samsung started rolling out its Android 10 beta for the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 earlier than expected, everyone speculated that the final Android 10 upgrade might come sooner than ever before -- maybe even before the end of 2019. Then, a leak a few days ago said Samsung might do the unthinkable and update several Android devices to Android 10 in early January, including 2019 flagships and other popular phones. That sounded just like aThat sounded just like a regular schedule for Samsung, with the added benefit that a bunch of different devices would run Google’s Android 10 as early as next month. And then Samsung started quietly rolling out the final Android 10 update to Galaxy S10 and Note 10 owners in several markets.
