Galaxy Note 9 receiving fifth Android 10 beta update in South Korea

It’s not just the Galaxy S9 that’s getting a new Android 10 beta update today. Samsung has also released another beta update for the Galaxy Note 9. This is the fifth beta release for the year-old Note 9; it’s available in Korea at this time but should soon be making its way to markets like India and the UK.

Unlike the new Galaxy S9 update, the latest Galaxy Note 9 beta is pretty small and fixes only two bugs. It improves the display of quick panel icons in the notification shade and fixes an error with fingerprint authentication in Samsung apps like Samsung Pass and Samsung Pay. The previous beta for the Galaxy Note 9 was even smaller – it had just one bug fix, so there’s a high chance the Note 9 will start getting the stable Android 10 update in the next week or so, at least for beta users.

Nothing is certain, however, and we would recommend remaining skeptical until the stable update actually starts rolling out. For now, if you are using the Galaxy Note 9, you can download the fifth beta update over the air from the Settings » Software update menu. Do leave a comment and tell us if you’re getting the update in a country other than South Korea.
