New updates are being added to this story…….
Original story (published on May 19, 2020) follows:
Google finally updated its Android distribution board with the latest details revealing what has become typical of new Android versions. Android 10, the latest stable version, still hasn’t hit a 10% market share nearly a year down the line.
As noted, though, it’s nothing unusual coming from the Android realm. Slow OS updates are what best describe the platform and while Google has been making efforts like Project Treble to speed things up, they’ve barely been felt by end-users.
One major reason new Android OS updates take ages to get hold of a significant market share is the speed at which big-name players like Samsung push the updates to eligible devices.
Since Samsung has the biggest market share, how fast it rolls out new Android OS updates will determine how fast the new OS spreads globally. That said, Android 10 is still below 10% because Samsung and co. are still rolling out the OS.
So far, the following Galaxy devices have picked up the stable Samsung Android 10 update, be it with One UI 2.0 or the newer One UI 2.1 skin on top of AOSP.

Note that while Samsung Android 10 update may have been released for these devices, the region-based rollout may be the reason your particular unit hasn’t picked up the OTA update. If anything, it’s only a matter of time before it arrives.
As for the remaining devices, Samsung should push the stable One UI 2.0 or maybe even One UI 2.1 updates by the end of Q3 2020 or thereabout, just in time for the release of Samsung Android 11 update.
