Galaxy Note 10 series now getting April 2021 security update

Select variants of the Galaxy Note 10Galaxy Note 10+, and the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G have already started receiving the April 2021 Android security update. More specifically, the over-the-air package was spotted in Germany earlier today. While it has yet to expand to more countries, expect that to happen shortly.

The update itself is identified by version number N97xFXXU6FUCD and carries more than just simple vulnerability fixes on board, based on the very name of the package. Stay tuned on what those are, exactly.

This news comes less than two weeks after the 2019 flagships began making the jump to One UI 3.1. They’re pretty early to the security update party this time around as the April 2021 OTA deployment was confirmed only moments ago on the Galaxy S21 series.

What’s new in this month’s update?

Given the timing of this release, we’re still in the dark regarding the actual contents of the April 2021 security update for the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+. Samsung usually releases detailed security bulletins at the beginning of every new calendar month, so expect more details to follow later this week.

Anyone who’s feeling impatient can try triggering the new update manually by launching the Settings app, scrolling to the Software update section at the bottom, and tapping the Download and install command on the following interface.

Alternatively, our firmware archives already have one set of full system images containing the April 2021 security update available for download. Able and willing owners of all compatible Galaxy Note 10-series devices can flash those manually to their smartphones as of right now, but everyone else is bound to follow them in the coming days.
