The Galaxy S10 Android 10 and One UI 2.0 beta program is currently underway in South Korea, Germany, and the US, and Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+ owners in other markets have been wondering whether they will get the chance to test out the One UI 2.0 beta as well. Samsung made the original One UI beta program available in quite a few countries, and we now have it on good authority that the company will do the same for the One UI 2.0 beta.
The One UI 2.0 beta program will be launched in France, Poland, Spain, the UK, India, and China in the near future, for both the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 series. These are the same markets where the Android Pie-based One UI beta was launched last year for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9. The Galaxy S10 5G will also be getting an Android 10 beta, but it will only be available in South Korea. We have not been told if Galaxy Note 10+ 5G owners will be able to participate, but we hope they do. After all, the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G is more widely available than the Galaxy S10 5G and also is pretty much the same device as the LTE variant of the Galaxy Note 10+.
Samsung hasn’t revealed a date for when the beta program for the Galaxy S10 series will expand to the markets mentioned above, nor when the Galaxy Note 10 beta will kick off. Samsung’s customer representatives have said that the Note 10 beta should start on October 21, and if that turns out to be accurate, we can expect the Galaxy S10 beta program to get a wider launch on the same day. However, nothing is final until Samsung makes an official announcement.
