Another day, another Galaxy device is getting updated with the May 2021 security patch. The unlocked Galaxy S10 Lite (SM-G770U1) in the USA is now receiving a new firmware update with the May 2021 security patch in tow, joining dozens of other Galaxy devices that have already gotten this treatment over the past couple of weeks.
As expected, the new firmware update — or rather the security patch — addresses numerous vulnerabilities affecting Android OS and Samsung’s proprietary software, but as yet, we don’t have a clear answer as to whether or not the new firmware update includes any other features and / or enhancements.
Camera and Quick Share improvements might be included
It’s worth noting that the May 2021 security update was accompanied by Camera and Quick Share enhancements for a few Galaxy devices that have been updated in recent days, though we’re not certain that these improvements were also included in the Galaxy S10 Lite’s update. In any case, Galaxy S10 Lite owners in the USA will be able to identify the new update by firmware version G770U1UES3DUE1.
At the very least, the firmware version suggests that the new update consists of more than just a security patch, but then again, it’s difficult to tell given that Samsung hasn’t been very consistent with its firmware numbers lately. If you do happen to own the Galaxy S10 Lite in the USA and you’ve updated the device with the latest update, feel free to let us know in the comment section if you’ve noticed any other changes and / or additions.
Eligible Galaxy S10 Lite variants can be updated from the phone’s Settings app by checking the Software update section, but owners can also download the update files from our firmware archive and install the package manually without having to wait for Samsung’s OTA release.
