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

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, which discusses Google's efforts to increase the speed at which people update their Android version.

The list includes lots of companies we'd expect. The fact that someand 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 and , 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 nomentioned. We were expecting some Huawei phones to be 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
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.

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).
Smartphone market: Nokia wants to get back to the top
goal is 3rd place in three to five years. The reconstruction of the brand is intended to finance, among other things, the business with feature phones. HMD Global CEO Florian Seiche considers the Nokia brand to be "very lively" and "extremely well-known".
The Nokia brand has not only reported back in the past week with a new flagship smartphone, but also with a challenge to the competition. In an interview with the, Florian Seiche, head of HMD Global, the Finnish licensee of the Nokia brand, announced his return to the ranks of the world's leading smartphone makers in five years at the latest.
"Our goal is to be back among the top 3 smart phone manufacturers within the next three to three years," the newspaper quotes the manager. "Together withand with our brand, we can do it."
For this, however, HMD Global and Nokia would have to overtake numerous other and now also partly established brands worldwide. These include Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi. Currently, Nokia should also sell less smartphones than/ Motorola or LG and Sony. But other less well-known Chinese brands would probably leave Nokia behind to catch up with the two top dogs and .
The expansion wants to finance HMD Global, among other things with the sale of feature phones. This business continues to be profitable. "As long as we start up the smartphone business, these feature phones finance much of our business," added Seiche. He also sees in emerging markets, the feature phones as a springboard for a later switch to the Nokia smartphones.
Nokia is considered one of the inventors of the smartphone or at least pioneer of the smartphone market. With the launch of the iPhone, however, began the descent of the Finnish company, which met neither with the development of its own mobile operating system Symbian, nor with the switch toof the competition by Apple and the numerous providers. However,
Seiche denies that Nokia's lack of competitive smartphone products has seriously damaged the brand in recent years. "The brand is very lively, it's extremely well-known."

Founded by former Nokia employees, HMD Global has been trying to re-enter the market since the beginning of the year with a nowproduct line. To differentiate itself from other Android providers, HMD Global, like Motorola and now also its mother Lenovo, relies on a virtually unaltered stick Android - the Android, as offers its ex-factory partners. The absence of a custom interface allows manufacturers to deliver new versions of Android faster, as well as monthly security updates, a criterion that is increasingly important to consumers. The newly created cooperation with the German optics specialist Zeiss should also build on the success story of earlier camera phones from Nokia. They were always considered the measure of things in terms of photographic technology. High-quality cameras are among the standard features of at least premium smartphones.
In addition, Seiche announced that for the time being to offer no tablets or smartwatches under the Nokia brand. "First of all, we concentrate on getting our smartphone selection complete and offering a lot of accessories. If we want to be one of the top smartphone manufacturers in the market in three to five years, we need to focus. "

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.
