Samsung is on a roll this year as it has pushed the latest security updates quite faster than the preceding years. For example, Galaxy Note 10 family of phone have already received the November security patches.

Not only this, but the company has also pushed in the fixes for the “fingerprint-gate” issue on the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 devices. And in a recent development, three major US carriers – Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile – are reportedly rolling out the November 2019 security patch for Galaxy S10e/S10/S10+.

Let us take a look at the updates received for Galaxy S10, one by one.

Verizon Galaxy S10

Verizon has pushed in the November security update for the Galaxy S10 that carries version number G97xUSQS2BSIV. It also tags along fingerprint performance enhancements as well.

Below is the screenshot and the official changelog of the update:

What’s changing:

This software update improves fingerprint recognition performance and gives you the most up to date Android security patch on your device.

Fingerprint Recognition Update

If you’ve used a screen cover, such as a silicone cover with a textured surface on the inside, your device may contain incorrect fingerprint information that may cause recognition issues.

All users should install this fingerprint update. If you’ve registered or scanned your fingerprint with a screen cover on your phone, remove all of your fingerprints and register them again without using a screen cover. Scan your fingerprint in its entirety, including all corners. If you have used a Samsung approved or a factory applied screen protector you will not need to re-register your fingerprints.


This update seems kinda similar to the one received on the Verizon variant for the Galaxy Note 10 that was pushed a couple of days back.

Sprint Galaxy S10

Another major US carrier network, Sprint has pushed the same November security patch for the device. Notably, this also brings in some improvements for the fingerprint recognition algorithm for Galaxy S10.

The new update carries the same build number (BSIV) and is based on Android 9 Pie. You can check out the screenshot from the official tracker as well as the changelog of the same, below:


· The security of your device has been improved.
· Improved fingerprint recognition algorithm


The update is being pushed via OTA in batches and will arrive for all the devices soon. Users on Reddit have also confirmed that the update is now live for Sprint Galaxy S10 units:


T-Mobile Galaxy S10

T-Mobile has also made the November update live for its Galaxy S10 users with identical build number. Below is the official changelog and the screenshot of the same:


· The security of your device has been improved.
· Improved fingerprint recognition algorithm


Note that the Exynos variant of the Galaxy S10 has already been served with the November security update that also brought in the fingerprint improvement fix via new firmware.

If you have not received the update on your device then, you head to Settings>>Software update>>Download and install to check for the update manually.

Happy installing!
