Here's how to get Samsung Galaxy Note 10 One UI 2.0 stable update right now (Exynos models)

Samsung has been full of surprises recently. Besides turning the tables when it comes to timely Android security patches, the Korean company has also been pushing the stable One UI 2.0 update based on Android 10 to various Galaxy phones ahead of schedule.

No Samsung phone was expected to get the stable Android 10 update before 2020. This is at least according to not one, two or even three official One UI 2.0 update roadmaps, but based on schedules for multiple markets where Samsung sells phones.

To everyone’s surprise, Samsung beat the scheduled Galaxy S10 Android 10 release date by a full month, kicking off the rollout late last month.

The stable One UI 2.0 update has since been made available for the likes of Samsung Galaxy M30, Galaxy M20 and more recently, the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ models on LTE. FYI, none of these devices had been earmarked to receive Android 10 stable this December.

As usual with major software updates, not everyone has received the OTA download notification to install the One UI 2.0 update on their devices. Sure, owners of the Galaxy S10 family can already install it manually rather than wait for the OTA thanks to Frija.

Similarly, those who own the Exynos variants of the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ and are yet to receive the notification prompt to install the new OS can grab the updated firmware from Frija and install it manually with the help of Odin.

The update you get from Frija is official Samsung firmware, so KNOX and your warranty will remain intact. But if this hassle is too much for you, how about you sit back and wait for the OTA download notification to arrive in a few days’ time?

If you are up for the task, though, feel free to follow the same guide for manually installing Android 10 on the Galaxy S10 using Odin to get the new firmware on your Note 10 or Note 10+. Details can be found here. You can also visit this XDA thread for further assistance.
