The One UI 3.0 update based on Android 11 is now rolling out to select Galaxy Note 10 Lite units. Samsung started the deployment within the last 48 hours, bundling the update with the January 2021 security patch, which was to be expected. The next series of vulnerability fixes for the Galaxy Note 10 Lite almost certainly won’t arrive so late in a given month than what’s been the case here.
In the meantime, the Android 11 update at hand, designated as release version N770FXXU7DUA8, has already been spotted in France earlier this week. We’re still waiting to confirm a wider rollout but you can always try searching for the new over-the-air package manually by navigating to Settings > Software update > Download and install on a compatible Galaxy Note 10 Lite.
Will the Galaxy Note 10 Lite get Android 12? How about Android 13?
If you’re unable to trigger an OTA installation on your own, there’s always the option of downloading full system images containing the new update from our firmware archives. Just make sure to create a full backup of your device before proceeding, assuming you have some idea of what you’re doing.
This is the first major operating system upgrade for the Galaxy Note 10 Lite since the smartphone debuted a year ago. And Samsung doubled down on its robust software support policies the following summer by promising three generations’ worth of OS updates for the vast majority of its contemporary mobile devices. This pledge encompassed the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, which is consequently guaranteed to receive both Android 12 and Android 13, whenever Samsung’s smartphone portfolio starts transitioning to those OS versions.
