Verizon has started rolling out the Android 10 update for the extremely popular Galaxy A10e and Galaxy A20 phones (via SamMobile). Unsurprisingly, however, the update for the Verizon variants of the two phones has arrived a few weeks after the unlocked variants made the jump to Android 10. AT&T, too rolled out Android 10 to the Galaxy A10e last month. T-Mobile, however, is yet to roll out the update for the budget-friendly A-series phone.
The stable Android 10 update for the Galaxy A10e arrives as version A102USQS6ATC2 and comes with numerous new features. Some of the highlights include Smart Reply, Focus Mode, a system-wide dark mode, Live Transcribe, gesture navigation, Sound Amplifier, and an updated camera UX. It also brings the May 2020 Android security patch to the affordable smartphone.
In case you haven't received a notification on your Galaxy A10e yet, you can manually check for the software update by going to Settings > About Device > Software updates and tapping Restart & install.
For the Galaxy A20, the Android 10 update arrives as software version A205USQU5BTE6 and brings the same set of features as the Galaxy A10e.
Samsung's affordable Galaxy A10e offers a modern design, an octa-core processor, expandable storage, and decent battery life. The phone is also compatible with most major U.S. carriers.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus hands on: Unfulfilled potential
Samsung refuses to lets its dream of Android tablets die, and the latest example of this is the Galaxy Tab S7+. It's an incredibly well-built gadget with premium specs galore, but is it enough to overcome the state of Android on a tablet in 2020?
Did you pre-order the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra?
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is a seriously impressive device, and as of right now, pre-orders are open. Have you splurged for the phone yet?
If you're a true Note fan, the Note 20 Ultra is the only phone to get
The little differences may seem superfluous to the general smartphone buyer, but they mean a lot to someone who's historically been attracted to the Galaxy Note. Samsung itself reiterates constantly that the Note line is for the "power users" and the "Galaxy fans" — the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is the only model that still embodies that mindset.
These cases provide all the protection your Galaxy A11 will need
If you want to go with Samsung but don't want to get a flagship like the S20, why not go with a more budget-friendly option like the Galaxy A11? This phone gives you the look of a flagship smartphone at just a portion of the cost. But even though you're saving some dough, you'll want to make sure that your investment is protected, so why not get a new case?
