Every year around September, Samsung releases the beta version of the next version of Android OS for its flagship devices. This year, the Android 10 beta update is coming to the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 devices. Google finally ran out of dessert names this year and decided to call the next version Android 10.
Samsung is going to announce the beta program for the Android 10 release for the Galaxy S10 and the Note 10 by the end of this month. The first beta version will be soon released thereafter and Galaxy S10 and Note 10 users will be able to update their phones to Android 10.
Samsung Android 10 beta details
The first beta build will be released for the users in the United States and Europe in October this year. The users in other regions will receive the beta build shortly after. This year, the beta version will also be released for the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 devices but only after the beta releases of S10 and Note 10 devices.
The Galaxy S8 and Note 8 will not receive the Android 10 update with One UI. Last year, the stable release of the One UI Android 10 was released fairly quickly in December. We hope that they maintain the same pace this year too.
Android 10 Update Features
Android 10 is the successor to Android 9 (Pie) and most of the upcoming features are either leaked or rumored to be present in the latest version. Here are some of the confirmed features in Android 10:-
Finally, Android 10 will come with a system wide Night mode which will be available in all the apps natively. The Dark Mode can be enabled in Settings>Display. However, not all the apps have been configured to work with the Dark Theme as of now.
The new version of Android will have native support for themes. You read it right, now users won’t have to install a launcher to customize their Android experience.
Similar to iPhones, Android 10 will have Gesture Navigations to switch between applications and to go to the home screen. We can already see this type of navigation in One UI and in the Oppo launcher.
4. Adaptive Notifications:
Android 9 came with Adaptive Brightness, Android 10 has Adaptive Notifications. It will sort the notifications based on their priority levels and accordingly choose to display them on the screen.
5. Live Captions:
- Android 10 will come with native support for live captions which will display text of the sounds on the screen in real time.
These are some of the confirmed features of Android 10 which will be included in the Android 10 Beta for Samsung Galaxy S10 and Note 10. Of course, the One UI will add more features to the mix which will greatly improve the user experience and feel of the OS.
