By looking at Galaxy S10e, you can definitely say that great things come in small packages. Every time when Samsung releases a Galaxy S series smartphone, they typically launch it in two models. However, this year the company has not only released the 10th generation Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus, but along with that, they have introduced a third variant called Galaxy S10e.

Samsung released May 2019 security patch version XXU1ASE5. However, the update was taken off the air because of many bugs and issues.
