Samsung is still offering supports for its older Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy M51 as both will be receiving the One UI 3.1 based on the current Android 11 OS.
Samsung has the reputation of constantly updating its devices’ operating systems and security patches as often as possible which is a great thing from the Korean smartphone maker and the update will bring about the newest features of the new software to the older devices.
The Galaxy M51 for example was announced back in the September 2020 and came with the Android 10 OS with One UI 2.1 out of the box and the jump to the current One UI 3.1 is a good move by the company and that’s a great news for those who are using these devices.
The update, version M515FXXU2CUB7, also comes with the March 2021 security patch.
As for the Galaxy S10 Lite will also be getting the update which will bring the device close in terms of software capabilities to the current Galaxy S21 series.
Samsung already released the same update for the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus, and Galaxy S10e, so it’s nice to see the S10 Lite get into the mix.
According to SamMobile, wireless DeX support is not included with the One UI 3.1 update for the Galaxy S10 Lite. The feature was thought to be available on all devices with One UI 3.1, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.
The updates is being rolled out globally but it’s definitely going to be regional which mean some users might get it before others.
For example, the update to Android 11 with One UI 3.1 is rolling out to the Galaxy S10 Lite in Spain. Meanwhile, the update to Android 11 with One UI 3.1 is available for the Galaxy M51 in Russia. Both updates will likely be available in more regions in the coming days. You can visit your device’s Software update page in the Settings app to see if you’ve received the update yet.
