Oh, you thought Samsung would be the first with Google's latest Android 10 operating system on its Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy Note 10, and Galaxy Note 10+ smartphones -- oh and we can't forget the Galaxy Fold, but nope -- ASUS is the first with its ZenFone 6.

ASUS has updated its interesting ZenFone 6 smartphone with Android 10 in its latest October 2019 security update for the ZenFone 6 smartphone. Android 10 will give the ASUS ZenFone 6 gesture controls like Google's newly-released Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones which come with Android 10 out of the box.

There's new themes and my personal favorite -- a system-wide dark mode, something I love on my Pixel 3 XL with Android 10, and miss dearly on my Samsung Galaxy S10+ 5G smartphone. The big interesting note here is that ASUS and not Samsung, were first with Android 10 on their smartphone.
