Samsung Preps Android 10 One UI 2 Beta For Galaxy Note 10
Lest there be any doubt about the Android 10 One UI 2.0 beta landing on Galaxy Note 10 devices in the near future, including the Galaxy Note 10+ and Galaxy Note 10 5G, Samsung Korea confirmed it is "coming soon." This is actually the first time Samsung has come right out and said an Android 10 beta is bound specifically for the Galaxy Note 10+ and Galaxy 10 5G.
Google released the initial shipping version of Android 10 (for Pixel phones) on September 3, but as is typically the case, it takes some for its hardware partners to adopt a major new build. As it pertains to Samsung, the company announced two weeks ago that it would also be arriving "soon" on its Galaxy S10 family, including the Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10e.
We mentioned at the time that it was interesting Samsung excluded its Galaxy Note 10 family from the list. That has now been rectified, though it remains to be seen if Samsung will limit the beta initially to South Korea, or if it will roll out to Galaxy Note 10 owners in the US and other parts of the world at the same time (or shortly after). Rumor has it the beta will program will be available in China, Germany, France, India, Poland, South Korea, the US, and the UK.
According to Sammobile, Samsung originally intended to make available the Android 10 One UI 2 beta to Galaxy Note 10 owners on Monday, October 21. However, that day has come and gone, and apparently customer care representatives are now telling users the new date is Thursday, October 24. We'll have to wait a couple of days to see if that's true—Samsung's official announcement (shown above) does not list a specific date.
After the beta program goes live, Galaxy Note 10 owners in supported regions will be able to enroll using the Samsung Members app. It's not clear how long the beta program will last before Samsung rolls out Android 10 One UI 2 to the public at large.
