After the current flagships, Samsung has started seeding the Android 11 update for its yesteryear smartphones. First of a probable bunch is the Galaxy Note 10 series of Smartphones.
According to Sammobile’s reports, Samsung is rolling out the One UI 3.0 based on Android 11 update to Galaxy Note10 (SM-970F), and Note10+ (SM-975F), Note10+ 5G (SM-976B) users. A firmware version N97xFXXU6ETLL is reaching countries like Germany for 4G variants while Spain and Switzerland are getting the N976BXXU6ETLL version for the 5G model.
Alongside the major Android upgrade, the update also brings the latest December 2020 security patch. Samsung has been updating its flagship smartphones with One UI 3.0 stable update from Early December. It started with the Galaxy S20 series and moved over to other devices of 2020.
Anyway, the Galaxy Note10 which launched back in 2019, gets the latest Android features like bubbles (conversations), media controls, improved permission management, and organized notifications. Additionally, you can also expect the One UI 3.0 features to land with this update.
Plus, Samsung hasn’t incremented the bootloader version which means downgrading is possible theoretically(but we won’t recommend doing it if you are new). It is also worth noting that this is for the Exynos variant and hence, Snapdragon users(US, Canada, China) should stay away from manually flashing it.
Samsung announced its One UI 3.0 beta (Android 11) back in August at the Galaxy Note 20 series launch. After the initial developer build, it expanded the beta to a lot of devices including the Galaxy Note 10 series but had to temporarily halt it due to a major bug.
