Select Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ models are already receiving the new Android security update dated August 1st, 2020. The rollout began on Wednesday with the international variant of the Galaxy Note 10+ (SM-N975F). It still appears to be limited to Germany, but with August being just around the corner, Samsung will likely ramp up its deployment efforts in a matter of days.

The August 2020 Android security update for the Galaxy Note 10 series is identified by build number N97xFXXS6CTGA. No other changes or additions are part of this over-the-air release.

As always, you can attempt to initiate a manual installation by launching the Settings app, navigating to its Software update subsection, and then tapping the Download and install option which will greet you on the following interface. Alternatively, just wait for a notification prompting you to download the OTA release, assuming you haven’t previously disabled auto-updates on your device. Full system images from Samsung will also be available for download from SamMobile‘s firmware archive shortly after they’re released.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy Note series is scheduled for its annual refresh on Wednesday, which is when Samsung will be officially announcing the Galaxy Note 20 range. The new smartphones have already been in a mass-production phase for a while now, so if you end up being among their early adopters, there’s no guarantee they’ll be running this particular security patch out of the box. However, it’s essentially a guarantee the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will at the very least be able to download the August 1st update from day one.
