Samsung Galaxy Note10 gets Android 10-based One UI 2.0 beta in India


Samsung rolled out the Android 10-based One UI 2.0 beta update for the Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy Note10+ in a few countries last month, and it's finally time for Note fans in India to get a taste of it.

Those interested can enroll in the beta program by heading to the Notices section in Samsung's Members app, tapping the "Registrations for One UI Beta Program (Note10/Note10+)", and then registering by tapping on the One UI Beta Program banner.

Once you've registered, you can download the One UI 2.0 beta update on your device by heading to the Software update section in the Settings menu.

But, what's new with OneUI 2.0? Well, a lot. From less notification or pop-up distractions, a strict separation of the viewable and interaction areas, more high-contrast and hearing aid accessibility features, as well as new apps for Dark mode to reign in, OneUI 2.0 is much more polished than the previous version, and it is arriving on Galaxies as we speak.

Samsung now includes a newly redesigned Device Care Menu. The app presents more detail about the state of the device's battery, storage, and memory usage, for starters. But Samsung also includes a new section covering device security. In each case, a click on the features provides easy access to controls for optimizing or fixing any issues.

Samsung also changes how its lock screen handles notifications and text via a feature called Smart Lock. Galaxy S-branded smartphones will now automatically detect the colors shown on the lock screen wallpaper. That information will be used to adjust the color and formatting used for the clock and on-screen notifications.

For instance, if the wallpaper is recognized as having a white tint, the text will be shifted black. Icons and associated text from notifications will follow a similar shift and darken accordingly. On a black wallpaper, the effect would be the opposite.

Similar features can already be found in Android 9 Pie-based OneUI but this will be more extensive.
