Second Galaxy Note 10 One UI 2.0 update rolls out to U.S. beta testers as Note 9 gets Android 10-based hotfix

A week ago, Samsung rolled out a new Galaxy Note 10 software update in Europe for beta testers of One UI 2.0 that brought several bug fixes and performance improvements.

Today, those participating in the One UI 2.0 beta program from the U.S. are now receiving a new software update on both the Galaxy Note 10 and the Plus variant. In case you didn’t know, this exercise is only limited to the U.S. unlocked models.

Like their Exynos counterparts, the incoming Galaxy Note 10 One UI 2.0 update is the second Samsung is rolling out to the U.S. unlocked models. It brings a bunch of bug fixes and performance enhancements – the same ones that Samsung pushed to the Exynos models.

Bugs that have been fixed

  • The screen flickers
  • When returning from some app to the home screen, the background can appear to be blurred
  • The status bar disappears when turning the screen off, while some app is opened
  • When taking a screenshot, and opening Recent window after that the screenshot of recent window is captured
  • Keyboard is cut at the bottom
  • Keyboard can’t be resized
  • Two contacts app display after update
  • Application that has been removed from the folder and placed on Home screen disappears
  • After update, app shape changed to Android app shape
  • AOD doesn’t appear while charging
  • A noise can be heard when connecting a Bluetooth device
  • Improved gestures interactions, some problems have been fixed.

The update is arriving over the air to those who already signed up for the Galaxy Note 10 One UI 2.0 beta program. It weighs in at 550MB and has software version N975U1UEU2ZSKH for the Note 10+ and N970U1UEU2ZSKH for the standard Note 10.

Even though Samsung has so far released seven Galaxy S10 One UI 2.0 beta updates, it’s unlikely the Galaxy Note 10 will also get a similar number of beta updates.

Given this incoming One UI 2.0 update for the Note 10 duo has the same changes as the fourth One UI 2.0 beta that rolled out to the Galaxy S10, it’s likely the stable update for the Note 10 could arrive shortly after the S10. Or maybe at about the same time.

Elsewhere in Korea, the Galaxy Note 9 is also receiving its second One UI 2.0 beta update. Arriving as build ZSK7, the update, which is basically a hotfix, brings a couple or so bug fixes and performance improvements.

To be honest, the translation of the changelog from Korean to English by Google Translate is quite poor. But we can still pick out that the new ZSK7 build addresses issues with unintended installation of apps and unlocking the phone after rebooting it.

□ Bug Fix
– Unintended issue of installing the app
– Unlocking after reboot

Since the Galaxy Note 9 One UI 2.0 beta program is also live in Europe, the new Android 10-based hotfix should also find its way to these models pretty soon.
