New Samsung Galaxy Note 10 August update goes live with updated modem & camera firmware
Tracking software updates for Android powered devices is a tricky job. Not all companies are like Google, thus you should not expect a proper release portal featuring detailed changelog of every available build out there. This is the reason we began working on our own OnePlus 7 family update tracker.
Besides OnePlus, Samsung also did a similar hotchpotch with the recent most software update for the international Galaxy S10 lineup. After rolling out the August security patch for this particular variant with ASH1 build, they secretly pushed another incremental OTA.
The new software version is tagged as ASH6, and it reportedly improves the UI smoothness and brings stability related fixes. Samsung is now distributing the new build in different regions, and looks like they are planning to take the same stance with Galaxy Note 10.
While the first and foremost update for global Galaxy Note 10 series bumped the security patch level and brought multiple software enhancements, the Korean OEM has silently made a handful of changes in the codebase. You may think it as a new build, but there is a catch!
The primary build number is still ASH5, but Samsung engineers are now shipping a new modem (ASH6). Moreover, they also updated the camera firmware, which means end users should have a better photography experience.
– August security patches
– Camera Firmware update
