After the Galaxy S10-series, Samsung has started rolling out the Android 10-based One UI 2.0 beta update for the Galaxy Note 10 phones in India. The One UI 2.0 beta update is now available for both the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ phones in India. The said update is already available for the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e in the country.
Samsung rolls out its major beta releases differently from other brands. The update needs to be manually installed by heading over to the Samsung Members app that comes pre-bundled with high-end Samsung flagship phones like the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10. Once inside the app, users need to register for the update (you'll need an Indian SIM card inside the phone to be able to do this). Once the registration is complete, the update can then be downloaded by heading over to the phone’s software update settings.
The Android 10-based One UI 2.0 beta update for the Galaxy Note 10+ weighs in at just under 2GB. “One UI 2 brings you Android 10, with exciting new features from Samsung and Google based on feedback from users like you,” the update brief reads. As is customary with such beta updates, Samsung recommends users to back up their important data to keep it safe during the upgrade. Also, because this is a beta update, it’s highly likely to have bugs and issues, so be warned.
At its annual developer conference 2019 keynote, the company demoed One UI 2.0 (based on Android 10) and how it seems to have been designed with a special emphasis on large-screen and foldable devices. Much like the first-generation One UI. Samsung has added new navigation gestures, focus mode in digital wellbeing and other key Android 10 features in One UI 2.0. We still don’t know when it’s going to be out with a stable release, but chances are this could be by the end of this year.
To refresh, the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 were launched with Android 9 Pie-based One UI.
