The October 2019 Android security patch rolled out to Exynos variants of the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus on October 7. The patch brought with it some camera quality enhancements and keyboard tweaks.
Later, Samsung accidentally rolled out the One UI 2.0 beta program for the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus. The company pulled the update soon afterward, telling users it would be rolled out later on. Eventually, Samsung officially released the One UI 2.0 beta update. SamMobile reported that it initially began rolling out to Note 10 users in Germany before rolling out to other markets (not including the US).
In early November, Samsung started rolling out several security patches to Verizon Galaxy Note 10 devices. This update brought minor bug fixes and a patch for the critical fingerprint flaw that affected many flagship Samsung Galaxy devices. Verizon advised all users to install this update and re-register their fingerprints without a screen protector to ensure effective biometric security.
By mid-November Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus Android 10 beta in the US. According to SamMobile (via the XDA forum) and users on reddit, the beta measures 1.8GB to 2GB in size. The US rollout followed the likes of Germany, India and South Korea.
You can register for the beta initiative via the Samsung Members app.
