The Samsung Galaxy S10 line is already receiving the Android 10-based One UI 2.0 OTA but the update so far is limited to Exynos-powered European models. Samsung's update roadmap says Snapdragon models won't get the update till January but a surprise is on the cards, as certain North American units will get theirs in a few days.

We happen to think Android OEMs are getting better with updates—at least with the speed of rollouts—and there looks to be some truth to it. Samsung has sent out the Android 10-based One UI 2.0 update to the Exynos-powered European Galaxy S10 phones and is now set to do the same for North American Snapdragon models soon. 

According to Samsung's own One UI 2.0 rollout roadmap, Snapdragon-powered S10-line phones are penned down to get the update in January. However, it seems that the update could be coming quite a bit sooner. 

Canadian carrier Telus has confirmed that the One UI 2.0 OTA will be coming to its S10 phones on December 16. That's three days away, and at least two weeks earlier than the official roadmap claimed. The best part, of course, is the fact that the update will likely get to the US around the same time. No US carrier has come out with a similar date so far—or any date at all—but we'd be surprised if US models didn't start getting the update before the year runs out.
