Samsung is on fire right now, as the company has released next month’s Android security patch for the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ here in late October, after rolling out the November update for the Galaxy Tab S4 and for the Galaxy S10 series. Like the Galaxy S10, the Note 10 and Note 10+ are getting the update in Switzerland, but the update does not include a slow motion mode for the front camera, which came to the Galaxy S10 lineup with an update released yesterday.
However, we shouldn’t be surprised that there are no new features onboard this update. Its build number is N97*FXXS1ASJG, and the letter ‘S’ after ‘XX’ indicates this is only a security update. Updates that add new functionality or change things other than the security patch usually have a ‘U’ in that position. It’s also worth noting that the Galaxy S10 family is mostly just getting features that already exist on the Galaxy Note 10, so Note 10 owners will likely have to wait for the Android 10 and One UI 2.0 update to see any new features on their device.
The latest update can be downloaded over the air – open the Settings app on your phone, select Software update, then tap Download and install. You will receive a notification about the update once it’s live in your country, although it is likely to take a few days for the update to be available more widely (especially for the Snapdragon-powered models in the US). As always, you can also grab the latest firmware for your country from our firmware archive to manually upgrade your device.
