The July 2020 Android security update is now rolling out to unlocked variants of the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+, i.e. models SM-N970F and SM-N975F, respectively. These over-the-air upgrades can be identified by build numbers N970FXXS5CTFA and N975FXXS5CTFA. No other changes or additions are bundled with this release which bumps the security level of your device up to July 1st.
While security updates from Samsung are always rolled out in a gradual manner, the company seems to be wasting no time on getting the newest OTA release to eligible customers. Namely, the deployment started with Southeastern Europe on Wednesday and has since then expanded to about a dozen other European countries.
OTA download already available to Galaxy Note 10 owners throughout Europe
Of course, just because the rollout began in your territory doesn’t mean the update is already available for you to download. Still, you can always trigger a manual check by opening the Settings app, tapping Software update, and selecting Download and install on the following screen. Alternatively, visit SamMobile’s firmware archives for the latest official system images from Samsung. With the Exynos variants of the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ now being in the process of receiving the latest security update, their Snapdragon 855-powered counterparts should be next in line for this upgrade.
Meanwhile, Samsung is believed to be wrapping up preparations for another Galaxy Unpacked event taking place in early August. The happening is near-guaranteed to result in the announcements of the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Fold 2 series, with the Galaxy Tab S7 tablet range also being likely to make an appearance for the occasion.
