Do you have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10 or Note 10 Plus? These two high-end models are already receiving the update to Android 11 and One UI 3: what’s new and how to download.
Samsung is meeting its update schedule. When the company announced the news of Android 11 and One UI 3, they revealed a list of Galaxy devices that would receive this version throughout the end of 2020 and next year 2021. Some terminals set for an update during the month of December have already received the update, like the Galaxy S20. Other models, such as the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus, had to receive the update during the next year, but Samsung has advanced it.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10 or a Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus, you can now update to Android 11 and One UI 3. It is about the new version of Android and the new layer of customization from Samsung. These two models are already receiving the update in Europe, so all compatible models will start updating from today and in a phased manner. The update has the number N97xFXXU6ETLL and in addition to Android 11 and One UI 3, it also includes the security patch for the month of December 2020.
To update you just have to go to Settings> Device information> Software update. There you should check if there are new updates available. Don’t worry if they still don’t appear, as the new version could take a few days, or even weeks, to reach all users. Of course, you must take into account different points before updating.
Update with enough battery, more than 50%. It is best to keep the terminal connected throughout the update
Make a backup of your data. The terminal will need to restart, and if there is a problem with the update (it is unlikely) you can reinstall a previous version without losing your images, contacts, applications, and more.
Connect to a stable Wi-Fi network. It is not recommended to update with mobile data, so it is best to connect to a stable WiFi network, which also does not have problems during the download of the software.
Check the storage. Although you should not have problems, since the update does not weigh more than 5 GB, you should check if you have enough internal storage. If this is not the case, free up space by deleting those apps you don’t use or cleaning your photo gallery.
ANDROID 11 AND ONE UI 3, WHAT NEWS COMES TO THE SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 10
The news is the same as we see in other Galaxy terminals that have already received the update to Android 11 and One UI 3.0. One of the most important changes is the new design for the notification bar. Now it shows a more minimalist and neat look. This includes one of the novelties announced by Google in the launch of Android 11: notifications grouped by categories. Until now, notifications appeared in order of arrival. Now they are grouped by categories: message notifications, system, priority…
A new design is also added to the block screen or, where we see some of the new features of the notification bar. The widgets are redesigned with a more minimalist and colorful look. On the other hand, some of Samsung’s own applications receive new functions. An example is the video call app, which implements AR Stickers and the ability to view the call in full screen.
And for the Samsung Galaxy Note, there is also news, since those terminals with S Pen receive a new feature. With One UI 3, it is possible to customize the actions of the digital pen. We can also customize the shortcuts that are displayed when removing the S Pen from the Note 10.
