New Galaxy Note 10 update improves face recognition, navigation gestures

Samsung has released a new software update for the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+, one that brings improvements other than enhanced security for the first time after the two phones were updated to Android 10 and One UI 2.0. This new update, sporting software version N97xFXXU2BTB5, was released in Malaysia a little over a week ago and is now available in Germany. It will likely be released in more markets in the coming days.

The improvements in the new update are focused on facial recognition and full-screen navigation gestures, though Samsung doesn’t go into detail about exactly how these features have been improved. The update doesn’t include the March security patch, which is somewhat surprising as Samsung had recently gotten into the habit of releasing the next month’s security patch for its flagships before the preceding month was over. However, it’s possible that in some countries, Samsung will bundle the aforementioned improvements with the March patch.

If you own a Galaxy Note 10 or Note 10+, you can check if the update is available for your phone over the air by opening its Settings app, selecting Software update, and tapping Download and install. You can also update by installing the latest firmware, which you can download from our firmware archive, on your phone using a Windows PC.

Currently in “settings” when you swipe up to return to the home screen, it scrolls up the settings menu at the same time.
This also happens in other applications, it is the only correction that I suppose possible in gesture mode.
I can’t wait to get the update.

For me it is really necessary that I go very slowly at the time of the movement so that the menu does not scroll up and that I start the movement at the bottom of the screen.
Happy for you. 😁

Weirdest thing happened. After getting this update, my S Health app updated out of the blue to an older non dark mode version. Update came from the Galaxy Store… Had to reload the latest apk to get dark mode back.

For me too

Yes, I updated to the latest S Health and everything else is perfect. So, back to normal. I don’t know about the other improvements. I never used face unlock as my watch keeps my phone unlocked, and gestures always worked fine for me.

Just arriving for me as I write this. 221.07mb. Includes February 1 patch which is ok as I was still on January. It was a bit later as I got the January update in late December. But it’s within the month so I won’t moan about it. Good to get improvements beyond the security patch.
