Samsung India launched the Galaxy S10 Lite back in January, almost a year after the original Galaxy S10. The company actually offered a solid package in the sub-Rs 40,000 price range competing with the likes of OnePlus, Xiaomi and Realme. The handset is now reportedly getting the latest One UI 2.1 update.
Samsung had announced that it would be delaying the release of Android 10 and One UI updates for its smartphones and tablets due to the COVID-19 lockdown. The company now seems to be getting back on track and recently rolled out the Android 10 update for the Galaxy A50. The company has also started pushing out One UI 2.1 in the country for the Galaxy S10 Lite bringing some new software features.
The new firmware version rolling out in India (G770FXXU2BTD2) is the same one that was released for the smartphone in other countries a couple of months ago. Expect features like Quick Share, Music Share, Pro video mode all of which debuted on the Galaxy S20 series. The update should also bring new camera features such as Single Take, My Filters, and nighttime Hyperlapse recording. The security patch, for some weird reason, is from April. Hopefully, the company will roll out a small patch with the latest security update later in the month.
The update is not available over the air (OTA) as of now, but that should happen in the coming few days. If you don’t want to wait, you can download the update for your Galaxy S10 Lite using Samsung’s Smart Switch software.
