Samsung introduced One UI 2.0 based on Android 10 at the end of last year, offering exciting new features and a more modern interface. Because of the sheer breadth of devices on offer around the globe, Samsung takes several months to roll out platform updates to its entire portfolio.

The flagships are usually the first to receive the updates, with the Galaxy Note 10 series and the S20 series making the switch to the stable Android 10-based One UI 2.0 build in December and January. Samsung is now updating its mid-range phones in the Galaxy A series to One UI 2.0, with the rollout scheduled to run through the next three months.

One UI 2.0 brings a host of new features, including an enhanced system-wide dark mode, new navigation gestures, welcome changes to usability, better accessibility controls, and so much more:

Samsung rolls out updates in phases, and as such not all phones across the globe receive updates at the same time. That's particularly true for unlocked versions in the U.S., which usually take a few extra weeks to get the same update over the carrier variants.

List of Samsung phones waiting to get One UI 2.0 (Android 10) update

Samsung is set to update a lot of budget and mid-range phones in the Galaxy A, Galaxy J, and Galaxy M series to One UI 2.0 over the next three months. I'm using the update schedule posted by Samsung India (opens in new tab) and Samsung Middle East (opens in new tab) as basis for the timelines quoted below.

Most of the phones listed below are limited to these regions, so the timeline should give you a decent estimate as to when your phone will get the One UI 2.0 update based on Android 10:

  • Samsung Galaxy A6: May 2020
  • Samsung Galaxy A6+: May 2020
  • Samsung Galaxy A8 Star: May 2020
