Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ Star Wars Edition theme/icons issue after Android 10 update gets acknowledged

A month before Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premiered on the screens, Samsung announced a brand new smartphone called the Galaxy Note 10+ Star Wars Special Edition.

That’s a pretty huge name for what is equally a massive handset, coming in with a unique black and red color scheme, the latter also highlighting the S Pen while the former dominating most parts of the device itself.

The Galaxy Note 10+ Star Wars Edition is packed to the brim with premium hardware themed around Kylo Ren and interesting Star Wars-inspired software tweaks such as wallpapers, sounds, animations, and more.

Out of the box, the special edition Note 10+ runs Android Pie as the base OS. And like other Note 10 devices, the device has already received its stable One UI 2.0 update based on Android 10.

But it is now emerging that after receiving the update to Android 10, the Galaxy Note 10+ Star Wars Edition is experiencing an annoying issue where parts of the Star Wars-inspired theme have been changed and even some icons deleted. This happens when the Dark Mode is enabled.

Hey so not sure where to post this, I @ the samsung help twitter account and they told me to come here but with the Android 10 update a small part of my theme, the icons, were changed and were deleted. I’ve attached two photos showing the now grey folder bubbles vs the hexagonal black themed icon bubbles that are now no where to be found.


Several other affected owners of the Note 10+ Star Wars Edition have aired their dissatisfaction, forcing a Samsung representative to come and acknowledge the issue, further confirming that the company is now looking into the matter.
