The new Scan QR codes option has been added in camera app with quick toggle switch. Instead of using third party QR code apps, now the users can directly scan QR codes from camera app. This firmware will also update the build number of Galaxy S10 series to PPR1.180610.011.G975FXXU2ASF3 (the model number will vary by device).

Apart from these changes, this update didn’t carry any other new features to these devices. Usually Samsung will roll out the software updates in stages via OTA, so if you own any of these devices S10 / S10+ then switch on WiFi or mobile data to get automatic update. If it’s not available try to check for manual update from Settings > Software update > Download & Install. Don’t skip the security patch updates, because it will fix the critical security issues and bugs that are located in android and Samsung.
