What you need to know
- The stable Android 10 update for the Galaxy S10 has reportedly started rolling out.
- For now, it appears the update is only available in Germany for users who had enrolled in the One UI 2.0 beta program.
- Along with all the new One UI 2.0 features, the update brings the December security patch as well.
Earlier this week, Samsung began publishing its Android 10 update roadmap for users in different countries. According to the roadmap, the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 series phones are slated to be upgraded to Android 10 in January 2020. Surprisingly, however, the folks at SamMobile are reporting that Samsung has already started pushing the stable Android 10-based One UI 2.0 update for the Galaxy S10 series phones.
The update is now rolling out to users in Germany, although it is currently available only for those who had enrolled in Samsung's One UI 2.0 beta program. As per SamMobile, the new software update weighs in at around 140MB in terms of size and brings the December Android security patch.
If you live in Germany and have the latest One UI 2.0 beta build installed on your Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, or Galaxy S10e, you can check for the update manually by heading over to Settings > Software update.
Unless the update was pushed out accidentally, we expect it to soon become available for beta users in the U.S., France, India, Poland, South Korea, Spain, and the UK. However, it remains to be seen if Samsung will release the stable One UI 2.0 update for users who hadn't enrolled in the beta program before the end of the year.

Amazon Echo Frames review: Alexa comes for your eyes and ears
When I reviewed the Amazon Echo Buds in late 2019, I commented that they were a solid first attempt to help get Alexa out of the house and make her more useful on the go. The Echo Frames, which were announced at the same time as the Echo Buds, are the latest of Alexa's steps into the wider world. I'll tell you what I thought of them after my first few days with them.
