Galaxy Note 10 November security update released in the US
November is just starting, but at least one carrier in North America has released the security patch for the month for the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+. Comcast’s Xfinity Mobile is rolling out an update for the Galaxy Note 10+ that includes the November security patch. The Galaxy Note 10 doesn’t seem to be getting the same update yet, but that is likely to change in the next few hours. The build number accompanying the new update is N97*USQS2ASJ8.
The November security update for the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ was released earlier this week for the Exynos-powered models in some markets, and it doesn’t bring any new features. The November security patch, meanwhile, is a mystery, as it won’t be detailed by Google or Samsung until sometime next week. For Galaxy devices, the November patch may include a fix for a critical Android OS vulnerability that is fixed in Google’s version of the October security patch but did not make it into the October patch released for Galaxy devices, at least if we go by the details for the patch published by Samsung on its security bulletin.
It may be the reason why Samsung has been quick to roll out the November patch for both the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy Note 10, even going as far as releasing the Galaxy S10’s November update in Switzerland just a day after it released an update with the October patch for the S10 series in the country. The Galaxy Tab S4 also received this month’s security patch a couple of days back, although it remains to be seen if Samsung will maintain the same pace in bringing the November update to other devices in its lineup.
Those on the Xfinity network on the Galaxy Note 10 or Note 10+ can check for the update from the Settings » Software update menu on their device. The firmware for the latest update can also be downloaded from our firmware archive (Note 10 | Note 10+). Got the update on a different carrier variant of either device?
