Early users, however, found that the phone had security patches in February. The Day One Update (ASBA), delivered with fingerprints, camera, and Bixby-related fixes, was quickly enforced, but the level of the security patch remained unchanged.
As part of their Security Maintenance Release (SMR), Samsung launched the security patches for March number of older devices: Good news is that their current generation flagship has just been added to the squad.
The global version of the Galaxy S10 family is currently receiving the security of March patches with additional fixes for wireless powershare and camera stability.
For security updates, the South Korean OEM included 11 Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) in addition to standard Google patches. Interested readers can take a look here to find out more.
The size of the incremental update is almost 500 MB. Therefore, it can be assumed that the Samsung engineers use additional corrections that are not mentioned in the official changelog. We decided to dig a bit and find something interesting.
The Exynos 9820-supported, global version of the Galaxy S10 has an unpleasant battery drain problem that can be caused by VoIP calls in particular.
There is a serious problem with the Galaxy S10 family, the Exynos variant. After calling the VoiP call (WhatsApp, WeChat call, etc.), the phone can not be put into sleep mode until the next reboot. It is a deadly battery in standby mode and would really help if you could bring this problem to light.

A rough translation into English has revealed the following:
After reviewing and analyzing the log file, Samsung has learned the battery drain problem. In Samsung Galaxy S10 +, our departments are working to release the next update (version G975FXXU1ASC1) as soon as possible.
The above-mentioned "ASC1" update at least does not exist publicly. However, the latest ASC8 build reportedly eliminated the annoying battery after VoIP calls.
Ok, guys installed the new firmware and cleared the cache. Usually it went into the deep sleep. Then I tried to make a WhatsApp call. ?????? Usually it went back to the deep sleep. Wooohoooooooo, I can confirm that the nasty bug is fixed

The following country codes are listed internally, so they eventually get the build.

Note that the US Galaxy S10 models have not yet received this specific update, interestingly, a Sprint employee cited hints Future update that could fix the data / LTE connectivity issues of S10 in the Sprint network.
As previously mentioned, an MR should be preloaded on the 27th if MR is pressed and you have updated and your device is always up This information is from yesterday, so who knows what has changed since then
As you can see, the preliminary date of rolling the update is March 27. It exists a high probability that Samsung and Spring push the network fix into the network upcoming March update (ASC8) for Snapdragon-operated S10 series Carrier-Lock models.
