Galaxy Note 10+ 5G gets standalone 5G support on T-Mobile’s network
T-Mobile is now rolling out a new software update to the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G on its network. Apart from the August 2020 security patch, the new update brings support for the carrier’s standalone 5G network to the smartphone. It means that users would get higher quality 5G and better 5G signal strength on their Galaxy Note 10+ 5G.
The new software update carries firmware version N976USQU3BTI5 and is about 395MB in size. It also brings a new disclaimer for location services and additional improvements to the phone’s security and stability. If you’re a Galaxy Note 10+ 5G user on T-Mobile’s network, you can check for the update by navigating to Settings » Software update on your device and tapping on Download and install.
T-Mobile launched its standalone 5G network in the US last month. Galaxy Note 10+ 5G users had access to the carrier’s 600MHz 5G, but the access still relied heavily on mid-band LTE signals. It meant that 5G was limited to the range of 4G signals. With the new update, the smartphone gets access to standalone 5G and customers can get lower latency and higher signal strength inside buildings.
Last year, T-Mobile launched the Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G on its network and then released the Android 10 update to the two phones one month later. The previous software update for the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G brought the July 2020 security patch. Have you received the new update yet? Let us know in the comments section below.
