Update 10/28/19 — Samsung's latest Android 9 Pie update with the October 2019 security patch also includes slow-motion selfies for the Galaxy S10. That means that slow-motion selfies isn't an Android 10-exclusive feature and is available right now on all Galaxy S10's that have received this update.
What you need to know
- Five countries in Europe now have access to the second Android 10 beta update for the Galaxy S10 family.
- Galaxy S10 owners can register for the Android 10 One UI 2.0 beta through the Samsung Members app on their phone.
- Android 10 brings about a ton of new changes and additions, including an enhanced dark mode, new gesture navigation, and tweaked UI elements for a better experience.
Samsung Galaxy S10 owners in even more countries can now participate in the One UI 2.0 beta, which is Samsung's version of Android 10, according to SamMobile. As of this writing, a total of five countries have seen the rollout of the second update of Samsung's Android 10 beta, including France, Ireland, Poland, Spain, and the UK. We're expecting South Korea, Germany, and the U.S. to be in the next round of countries to receive the update but that doesn't seem to have happened just yet.
One UI 2.0 brings about a slew of changes, including a new full-screen gesture control (that's in addition to the ones already available on these phones), tweaked UI elements that are less obtrusive in daily use (like smaller notifications and volume panels), and enhanced dark mode that better themes elements like text on the lock screen, and even the debut of Digital Wellbeing on Samsung Galaxy devices.
Additional tweaks have been made to the camera interface, including a brand new slow-motion selfie feature. This is just "regular" slow-motion and not the 960FPS super slow-motion that the rear camera can record, so keep that in mind.
Samsung also launched the same exact version of One UI 2.0 for the Galaxy Note 10 today as well, but it's only available in Germany at this time. That means no matter what Samsung 2019 flagship you own, you can opt into the beta and get all the latest features and goodies right now.
Navigate on over to the Samsung Members app and, if you live in one of the countries which Samsung is testing Android 10, you'll be able to opt into the beta right on the main screen. As can be expected for a big OS update, you'll need to download a large file, get your battery mostly (or fully) charged, and give it a bit of time to finalize the install before you can dive into the new hotness.

At this point, Google should just launch the Pixel 4a with the Pixel 5
With delay after delay pushing back the Pixel 4a's launch into July and possibly August, it would make a lot of sense for Google to simply call it the Pixel 5a and launch it alongside the Pixel 5 in October.
