Samsung is rolling out a new update to the Galaxy S10 series that brings June security patch as well as haptic feedback for the navigation gestures, which was introduced as a feature on the Android 9.0 Pie. Thanks to the update, the device will now vibrate every time users navigate using the gestures, but not whenever they tap the screen.

It recently pushed out a camera update with a host of new features including the ability to click Night Mode pictures with the ultra-wide camera and more.
