When it comes to flagship smartphones, Samsung doesn’t have a worthy contender. Not that the devices from other companies lack adequate specifications! But, users tend to have special interest in the South Korean tech giant simply for their brand value.

Huawei did challenge Samsung with their top-of-the-line Mate and P series. However, the US government decided to put a question mark on the destiny of the company. As a result, we now have the all-new Mate 30 series without Google apps. It will certainly evoke a second thought among the buyers.

As for Samsung, their latest is Note 10 series. Though both the phones carry the same chipset, they differ in memory expansion, screen size, and resolution. There are two SoC variants for each of them, though.

In the USA and China, their processor of choice is Snapdragon 855 whereas in other markets like the Europe, Middle East, and Africa, the Note 10 series packs in Exynos 9825. Above all, different carriers have their own variants into which they themselves rollout OTA updates.

Talking about updates, AT&T already rolled out September security patch to Note 10, so did Sprint. Those who bought directly from the manufacturer already received the same on the fourth day of this month.

In case you are wondering when Verizon does the same, it’s time to stop pondering and start installing. Yeah, they have untied September update for both Note and Note 10+. Apart from bumping up the patch, it hardly brings anything new.

The software version for Note 10 is PPR1.180610.011.N970USQU1ASHB and on the other hand for Note 10+, it’s PPR1.180610.011.N975USQU1ASHB. So, it is evident that the build number is a bit older considering AT&T released ASI2 yesterday.

The new package doesn’t seem to have adversely affected the users. While it’s too early to judge, we’ll get the whole picture in the upcoming days. If and when any bugs pop up, we will update this story with enough details.

Wait! Didn’t you get the update? First, make sure you have a Verizon-branded Note 10 or Note 10+. Then, you can follow Settings > About phone > Software updates > Check for Updates to manually examine the availability of the OTA. No luck? Well, wait for a few days and you’ll have it.
