A couple of days after releasing it for beta users, Samsung has now begun rolling out the stable Android 10 update for the Galaxy Note 9 to non-beta users as well.
The update has been first released in Germany and is available over the air (OTA) to all Note 9 units running Android 9 Pie. It should be making its way into more markets over the next few days.
The new update for the Galaxy Note 9 bumps the firmware version to N960FXXU4DSLB. The OTA update size weighs in at a whopping 1900 MB as it packs all the features that are part and parcel of the Android 10-based One UI 2.0.
This update also carries the December 2019 security patch. The firmware version and update size may vary according to the market, though.
The Galaxy Note 9 is the third Samsung flagship to have received the stable Android 10 update. The Galaxy S10 series received the update in November last year, while the Note 10 series received it in December.
Samsung has also released the stable Android 10 update for a couple of budget phones, the Galaxy M20 and M30.
Next up should be the Galaxy S9 series, which is currently in the beta channel. Samsung isn't running an Android 10 beta program for any other Galaxy smartphone. So it shouldn't be long before the stable update is released for the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.
Galaxy Note 9 Android 10 update
Samsung kicked off the Android 10-based One UI 2.0 beta program for the Galaxy Note 9 back in November 2019. The handset received as many as five beta builds in some markets before making the move to the stable release.
Naturally enough, the OTA update size for beta users weighed only 100 MB as all the features that are set to arrive with Android 10 have already been seeded via those beta updates.
The Android 10-based One UI 2.0 brings a host of aesthetic and functional changes to Samsung smartphones. Built-in screen recorder and slow-motion selfie videos are some of those new features.
As said earlier, Samsung should soon begin rolling out the stable Android 10 update for the Galaxy Note 9 globally. If you own one, you can manually check for updates by tapping Download and install in the Software update menu of the phone's Settings app.
Do note that updates are released in stages and may not be available to all Galaxy Note 9 units straight away. You should get a notification once the update becomes available for your Note 9.
