Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Android 10 update (One UI 2.0) arrives in the U.S. in beta

Samsung software updates roll out to Exynos models sold in Europe first before finding their way to the Snapdragon models in the U.S. This was the case with the ongoing Samsung One UI 2.0 beta program for the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+.

The first One UI 2.0 beta update arrived on the Galaxy Note 10 in Europe towards the end of October. In fact, this region has already picked up its second One UI 2.0 beta update on the Note 10 duo.

A week after the first beta went live in Europe, the Galaxy Note 10 Android 10 beta testing program for the U.S. market was announced by Samsung. At the time, the update was said to be coming soon.

Today, reports are coming in thick and fast, that Android 10 beta update is now available for the two Note 10 models in the U.S. In case you missed it in the image above, this update is only targeting the U.S. unlocked models and not carrier variants.

Interestingly, the Galaxy S10 One UI 2.0 beta program for the U.S. market has room for select carrier variants. Its likely Samsung is just taking precautions with the numbers taking part in the beta program so as to keep things manageable.

The Galaxy Note 10 Android 10 beta update is arriving as version N970U1UEU2ZSK3 while the Note 10+ is receiving it as version N975U1UEU2ZSK3, weighing in at about 2GB. For those experiencing issues getting into the program, try clearing the data/cache of the Samsung Members app before you register.

Even better is that Galaxy Note 10+ owners can already pick up the firmware from Firmware Science via the link below, where you should also find the guide to install it manually, just in case you don’t. But be sure you are coming from build ASJ8 that recently brought November patches.

  • Device: Samsung Galaxy Note 10+
  • Codename: SM-N975U1
  • Channel: USA Beta
  • Version: One UI 2.0 (ZSK3)
  • Android: 10

The Galaxy Note 10 download link is not up on Firmware Science, but it should be pretty soon. We will update this post when we get it. But be warned that this being beta software, it’s unstable and not suitable for use as a daily driver.
