What you need to know
- Samsung has announced that the Android 10-based One UI 2.0 update has been delayed in India due to the nationwide lockdown that is currently in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
- Several popular Galaxy A-series phones were previously slated to receive the Android 10 update in India in May.
- The company has assured users that it is doing its best to roll out the update as soon as possible.
Samsung was expected to roll out the Android 10-based One UI 2.0 update for a number of popular Galaxy smartphones in India this month. Unfortunately, however, the company has now announced the rollout has been delayed due to the nationwide lockdown imposed in the country to reduce the spread COVID-19.
Samsung has informed its customers through a notice on the Samsung Members app that it is "experiencing a slight delay" at its end to roll out One UI 2.0 updates in the country due to the complete lockdown mandated by the Indian government. While Samsung has assured its customers that it is doing its best to release the updates as soon as possible, there is no word yet on the extent of the delay.
As noted by the folks over at SamMobile, the list of devices that are expected to receive the One UI 2.0 update this month includes the Galaxy A9 (2018), A8 Star, A10, A10s, A20, A30s, A70, A6, A6+, Galaxy Fold, and the Galaxy Tab S6. While some of these devices will likely receive the One UI 2.0 update later this month, the rollout could possibly be delayed for a few models. The lockdown in India is expected to end on May 3.
Nah Samsung is using Covid 19 as an excuse because they're getting battered by OnePlus in India and don't see India as a priority for their already slow rollout of Android 10.
