Update: January 3, 2020 (02:00 AM ET): The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 has started receiving the January 2020 security patch. It’s a big deal for Samsung since Google’s own Pixel 4 series has not received the patch yet. Samsung’s update game has been on point lately and the Note 10 is its sixth device to get the latest security patch. 

This is the first update to the Galaxy Note 10 since it jumped to Android 10. Sammobile notes that the new update is currently rolling out in Germany. The software version is N970FXXS1BSLD and it does not bring any other features apart from the latest security patch.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus update

  • Current stable version: Android 10
  • When will the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus get Android 11? December 2020 (estimated)

The Galaxy Note 10 line launched in August 2019 with the then-latest version of Android, Android 9 Pie. Like most Android flagships, these are expected to receive at least two major updates in their lifetimes.

The first confirmed major update is Android 10, which publicly launched toward the beginning of September. Soon after, Samsung began a beta program for its flagships, including the Note 10 line. This beta program lasted for a few months before Samsung started rolling out Android 10 in a stable form.

At this point, nearly every device in the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 family, including the Star Wars model and the Sprint version, should have the Android 10 update. Any stragglers should get it by the end of January 2020. That update will include One UI 2.0, based on Android 10.
