Samsung pushes new update to Galaxy Note 10 in the US

Samsung‘s Galaxy Note 10 smartphones are receiving a new software update in the US. The company is pushing last month’s security patch to the 2019 Note phones. The February 2023 SMR (Security Maintenance Release) has already reached the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ in most international markets.

Galaxy Note 10 series gets the February update in the US

The latest update for the Galaxy Note 10 duo is available to both 4G and 5G models in the US but is currently limited to carrier-locked units on a handful of networks. The updated firmware build numbers are N97*USQU7HWB2 and N97*USQU5GWB2 for the two models, respectively (via SamMobile). Samsung should soon expand the release to all carriers and unlocked variants of the phones across the nation.

The official changelog for this update mentions some stability improvements along with last month’s vulnerability fixes. However, don’t expect anything major here. The Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ are on their last legs. They will only get a few more security updates before disappearing from Samsung’s official support list. At best, the company may be pushing some optimizations to the devices today.

The February SMR contains plenty of vulnerability fixes, though. Samsung’s monthly security bulletin mentions seven Galaxy-specific patches and around 50 Android OS patches. The Galaxy-specific issues exist in Secure Folder, Fingerprint TA, Contacts, Phone app, and other system services. The Android OS patches, on the other hand, contain at least five critical flaws. Some of those could lead to remote code execution.

If you’re using the Galaxy Note 10 or Galaxy Note 10+ in the US, these vulnerability patches will reach your phone within the next few days. As usual, you can check for new updates from the Settings app. Go to the Software update menu and tap on Download and install. If an OTA (over the air) update is available, you can download it right away. If not, wait a few days and check again.

Samsung has discontinued the Note lineup but the S Ua is nothing less

Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 10 series in 2019 and followed it with the Galaxy Note 20 in 2020. But it has since stopped making Note phones. Instead, the company has brought over the best of those S Pen-wielding big phones to the Ua model in the Galaxy S series. If you’re looking to upgrade your Galaxy Note 10, you’ll feel right at home with this year’s Galaxy S23 Ua. It’s an almost perfect smartphone.
