Galaxy Note 10 and Note 20 series receive October 2020 security update

Samsung began rolling out the October 2020 security patch last week. The first Galaxy device to receive it was the Galaxy A50 but the update’s availability continues expanding to additional models. The Galaxy S10 and S20 series picked up the update earlier today, and next in line for the October 2020 patch are the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 20 series.

The unlocked Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ are getting the latest update in the USA where it carries firmware version N97xU1UES4DTI1. You can refer to our firmware archive for the Galaxy Note 10 / Galaxy Note 10+ to download the latest update for your device or you can wait for the official update notification to arrive on your phone. The update is also being released on the Galaxy Note 10 in Germany carrying firmware version N97xFXXS6DTI5.

While all this is happening to Galaxy Note 10 users, Samsung is also releasing the October 2020 security firmware update for the unlocked Galaxy Note 20 (SM-N981U1) and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra (SM-N987U1) in the USA, carrying firmware version N98xU1UES1ATID.

As always, you can download the latest firmware from SamMobile’s archives directly to a Windows PC and install the update on your smartphone at any time. You can also try to trigger the update manually by opening Settings on your phone, navigating to Software update and tapping Download and install. Samsung has yet to detail the October 2020 security patch but it should disclose the changelog in the coming weeks.
