Update, November 14, 2019 (5:06AM ET): Samsung has quietly pushed out the Android 10/One UI 2.0 beta to some Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus devices in the US.
Original article, October 22, 2019 (8:04AM ET): The Samsung One UI 2.0 beta for the Galaxy S10 series has already launched in several countries, giving users a taste of Android 10. Fortunately, it seems like owners of the Galaxy Note 10 series don’t have to wait too long either.
An official post on Samsung’s Korean-language community forum (via XDA-Developers) confirmed that the One UI 2.0 beta is “coming soon” to the late 2019 flagships. Check out the announcement image below:
The post specifically mentions looming beta access for the 5G models, with no word on 4G devices in the image or post. But SamMobile previously reported that the beta initiative for 4G devices in Germany may have been delayed until October 24.
Samsung later confirmed that the One UI 2.0 beta for the Galaxy Note 10 series will come the US and Germany as well. A community post confirmed the beta program for the former region.
Unlike the South Korean beta, the US rollout seems to be restricted to the regular Note 10 and Note 10 Plus models, with no mention of the 5G variants. Only unlocked phones are compatible too, so if you bought your phone from a carrier you might be fresh out of luck.
If it’s anything like the Samsung One UI 2.0 beta for the Galaxy S10 series, then we can expect an improved dark mode, Google’s navigation gestures, and a focus mode on the Galaxy Note 10 devices.
