Exclusive: Samsung Android 10 beta details for Galaxy Note 10 and S10

It’s that time of the year when Samsung launches a beta program for the upcoming major Android update. Google has decided to no longer name its Android versions after desserts so this year’s update will simply be called Android 10. We already have a detailed page for those who want to check if their Galaxy smartphone or tablet will get the Android 10 update.

There’s going to be a beta program before the update is released to the public. We have received some exclusive information about the Samsung Android 10 beta program for the Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy S10.

Samsung Android 10 beta details

We have it on good authority from sources who have a solid track record that the Samsung Android 10 beta program is going to be announced towards the end of this month. It won’t be long before the first beta build is released. The first Samsung Android 10 beta build is going to start rolling out in the United States and some countries across Europe in October.

Some of you may recall that the Galaxy S9 One UI (Android Pie) beta was launched in November last year. The company also opened up the beta for the Galaxy Note 9 later that month. There’s no reason to believe so far that the Galaxy Note 10 will be excluded from the program this time around. Samsung ended up opening the beta to the Galaxy S8 duo and the Galaxy Note 8 as well. However, since those devices aren’t eligible for the Android 10 update, there’s no use hoping for a miracle.

Samsung went through the motions of the One UI beta program fairly quickly. The first stable Galaxy S9 Android Pie build was released on December 24, 2018. It was the fastest rollout of a major Android update from Samsung. Hopefully, we’ll see a repeat of that for Android 10 as well.

Stay tuned as we’ll be sure to bring you the latest information about the Android 10 beta for Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 as soon as it comes in. Who’s excited?!

A mi me gustaría, que bajaran el teclado al usar los gestos ya que queda una franja demasiado grande y queda muy feo.

The one thing I want from Android 10 is the new navigation gestures, which make far more sense than the ones Samsung introduced in OneUI 1.0 (or was it 1.5?)

One other thing – hopefully they’ll *FINALLY* set it so the navigation gestures rotate with the screen, as the navigation bar does. Currently this is a major shortcoming in OneUI

I actually like the navigation gestures in OneUI. I think they are pretty intuitive. But I do wish that they would rotate with the display also…

Having so few actual features for a whole version upgrade, Google should consider naming point increases again. Personally, I am looking forward to the granular permissions being added. Nothing else seems worthy of a whole version update.

Most replies here are narcissistic and biased. My other comment which the usual trolls do, was cur to pieces and it was typed in clear english comprehension. Is there a loss in translation here? Earlier response I have seen android 10 reviews and see nothing to get too excited about except many may complain on the incremental changes coming. Same going Oreo to PIE. No one likes changes, but change is good and reduces stagnation. YES, a few features will be nice, but the concern is the major update and how perfected it is not to do bizzare things to… Read more »

It’s not as major as the PIE transition.
I will delay the update as long as I can to see any adverse effects from others.

Finally, one person who is not a sheep 🐑. I absolutely agree with you. There’s nothing to be excited about Android 10. It brings almost nothing new to the table.

I hope Samsung will introduce some of their own new features and refinements, otherwise Google’s Android 10, from reviews so far, is nothing noteworthy.

I hope the list of countries in Europe will be bigger than last year. (Praying for CZE)

I haven’t been excited about a new Android version since Marshmallow. The next Android seems to generally be the last Samsung UI with a few bells and whistles added. And I can speak from experience. The phones I had before S9 plus and Note 10 plus were Pixels!

The next Android from Google is usually copies of several years old version of Samsung UI. Infact every EOM version of Android is more advanced than Google’s version.

Considering One UI 2.0 represent a much smaller update to Samsung’s version of the software than what OneUI 1.0 was; and considering Android 10 ads little to almost nothing that Samsung doesn’t already have; there’s very little reason why Android 10 on the S10 and Note 10 lines couldn’t be released even faster than Android 9.

You’re right there generally as I was just commenting on how the next Android is generally a copy of the previous Samsung UI, more so this year. However, I’ve had Pixel phones before moving to Samsung last year and many people may not realise it, but every year the new Android starts out with more bugs than a homeless man’s underpants. Lol. I kid you not, it’s usually the end of October before the bugs are cleared out and some of them can have quite serious and detrimental consequences for your everyday phone usage experience. I feel better about the… Read more »

You speak the truth. Pixel gospel preachers are either delusional or dishonest or maybe just ignorant.

Owning a Pixel is always a headache and Google is notoriously unresponsive to issues you have. It’s just not worth it. They release beta or even alpha products. If you don’t mind a software teeming with glaring bugs, then avoid the garbage pixel.

The thing is that Android 10 is not nearly as advanced as Samsung’s version of Android Marshmallow.

The situation of One UI 1.x and 2.x is similar to Samsung Experience 8.x and 9.x.

This article is all fluff, let me know when you guys have real information.

How about taking our word for it…. And we can’t leak the real dates because of the risk exposing our source…

So if I said that the first Android 10 beta would come out in October you guys would believe me?

Wow, what a lame excuse… So you’re telling me that your source is the only person at Samsung who knows the date and if you’ve revealed it he’ll be compromised? More like “it has to be october or november so lets make something up and call it a day saying it’s from reliable source. Worst case scenario we’ll blame “the source””. Like samsungfan99 said, this article is full of fluff writen to score those all important clicks.

THAT’s what you got from this? It’s much more likely that if they reported a specific target date as told to them by their T-Mobile or Samsung source, that MIGHT be a date that a limited circle of people actually know. In other words, a lot of people inside the company may know that the release will be “end of the month” but a much more limited number know a specific date.

You do know that Samsung tends to send out wrong info around to see where it originates from. So if they said to T-Mobile FW department it will be 25 December and to AT&T FW department it will be 26 December and the actual release is on 28 December. Then you see that leaking real dates is quite risky. Like a whole team could be fired or something. We just do not want to risk that.

This. People rarely understands that sometimes too much details will potentially put in “danger” the source and pinpoint him or narrow the group of people that the info can come from and create problems for them.
