Samsung has released some details about the September 2023 security update that will soon start rolling out to Galaxy smartphones and tablets. With this software update, the company has downgraded or ended the software update status for some of its older smartphones, including the Galaxy Note 10 series.
Galaxy Note 10 series downgraded to biannual security update schedule
The Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10+, which were getting one security update every quarter (three months), have now seen a sudden end to their software update support. It means these smartphones will not get security updates any longer. If you can remember, the Galaxy Note 10 series was launched in the second half of 2019, which means it has been four years since the release, and Samsung has finally stopped offering updates to these phones.
The Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10+ will not get security updates in the future. The Galaxy Note 10 Lite, which was launched in January 2020, is still on the quarterly update schedule.
Samsung debuted the Galaxy Note 10 series with Android 9 onboard. The phones in the lineup received the Android 10 update in early 2020, the Android 11 update in late 2021, and the Android 12 update in late 2022. The Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10+ did not get the Android 13 update.
