In October, Samsung released the One UI 2.0 beta update for German Note 10 users. However, Samsung Note 10 and Note 10+ owners in India didn’t receive the update. It’s finally time for the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ units in India to get the beta update for the Android 10 based One UI 2.0.
The update is likely to be made available in other countries like France, Poland, Spain, and the United Kingdom today or later this week.
Samsung One UI 2.0 Features and Changelog
The beta One UI 2.0 update has the software version G97*FXXU1ZSK4 and is available for Unlocked Note 10 and Note 10+ devices in India only. The changelog includes all the features that come with Android 10 and One UI 2.0 along with a few additional changes.
The new features mentioned in the changelog for the One UI 2.0 update are full-screen navigation gestures and One-handed mode which can make navigating and exploring the already size optimized One UI 2.0 much easier for the massive screens of the Note 10 and Note 10+ smartphones.
One UI 2.0 follows a design convention that makes the top half of the display reserved for viewing items like folder names and descriptions while the bottom half of the display is reserved for functional items like buttons and navigation items. This makes one-handed operation easier throughout the UI regardless of whether the user is in the Settings app or on the Home Screen.

People who are interested to join the Beta program to get a taste on the Android 10 based One UI 2.0 can now register by going to the Samsung Members app which comes preinstalled in Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ units.

Beta Update Warning
The One UI 2.0 update is currently in its beta stage, so Samsung has recommended the users to back up all of your data before starting the update process. The update is also most likely to have some production bugs which can be expected in beta builds, so you have to keep that in mind before installing the update.
If you just want to have a taste of One UI 2.0, it is recommended to install the beta update on a secondary phone instead of your daily driver or wait for a stable version before updating.
