Galaxy Note 9 gets new Android 10 beta update

The Galaxy Note 9’s One UI 2.0 beta program is moving ahead today with the release of a new Android 10 beta update. This is the third beta update for the Galaxy Note 9 (fourth if we count the hotfix update that followed the initial beta release) and comes with a rather short list of bug fixes, suggesting that the stable Android 10 update for the device isn’t far away.

In fact, Samsung’s beta team has even said in the South Korean community forums that the company is focusing on getting the stable update out quickly by fixing existing bugs instead of introducing new features. That suggests that features like Bixby Routines, which are missing from the Android 10 beta for both the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9, could arrive with minor software updates after the initial stable update has been rolled out.

Issues fixed in the latest beta update — software version N960FXXU4ZSL7 — include an app crash in Samsung Pass, unstable mobile hotspot connection stability, iris recognition not working in Secure Folder, and a couple of others. We can confirm that the third Note 9 beta is available in India at this time, and owners of the phone in the UK and South Korea should be getting it as well. You can check if that’s the case by going into the Software update menu in the device settings and selecting Download and install.
