Samsung is pretty fast when it comes to pushing the latest security patches. It has consistently beaten Google in rolling the latest security updates.

However, the carrier variants are not able to match the pace of the OEM. Fortunately, the AT&T Galaxy S10, Note 10, and Galaxy Fold users can update their devices to the latest security patch.
