Samsung has pushed out a new software update for the Galaxy S10 family. It means the new software version is available for the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus, and even the Galaxy S10e. This new update brings June 2019 security patch and also adds native QR code scanning support.
The build numbers for the new update on the three Galaxy S10 models are G9700ZHU1ASF1, G9730ZHU1ASF1, and G9750ZHU1ASF1. The biggest addition to the update is June 2019 security patch which is the latest monthly security patch from Google. It is good to see Samsung improving its update rollout track record with the latest flagships. Other than this, there are a bunch of bug fixes and under the hood performance improvements.
The update also adds native QR code scanning to the camera application. It will prevent Galaxy S10 users from installing a third-party application or relying on offerings like Bixby Vision and Google Lens. From now on, they simply need to launch the camera application, point the camera at the QR code, and that's it. It should be noted that QR code scanning is an optional feature which means it can be enabled or disabled via camera app settings anytime a user wants.
Lastly, it is an over the air (OTA) update which should arrive on your Galaxy S10 device anytime soon. You will be receiving an update notification as and when it will happen. You can also choose to check for the update manually by visiting system settings and software update section.
