Update [April 02, 2019]: The same build ASC8 is also available for the Galaxy S10 and S10e and it carries the same changelog for both devices, meaning you get the March 2019 security patch alongside plenty of bug fixes and system-wide optimizations. Original article continues below…
Sprint this week promised to release a software update to address signal strength and LTE connectivity issues for Samsung Galaxy S10+ users in the U.S. While the carrier is already pushing a new update to the device, the changelog doesn’t mention anything specific about fixing these issues.
The update started rolling out yesterday and is arriving as version G975USQU1ASC8. As per the changelog, a new March 2019 security patch has been included in the OTA alongside bug fixes, stability improvements, and performance optimizations.
However, going by the weight of the update, which clocks in at 536MB, there is more to it than just the typical security patch, bug fixes, and system optimizations. If anything, it’s possible that Sprint has also addressed the wireless network connectivity issues that S10+ users have been experiencing.
Although the connectivity issues were mostly reported by Galaxy S10+ users, some S10 and S10e users are also victims not just on Sprint, but also on other carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T. So far, its only Sprint that has a ready update, but we still don’t know when other carriers will release their bug-fixing updates.
Samsung is also expected to address these issues with an update of their own, especially since some unlocked units in the S10 series are also affected.
Do let us know if this Sprint update fixes LTE issues on your S10+.
