Several Unlocked Note 10 and Note 10 Plus users on Reddit reported receiving the update that brings the October security patch to the device, weighs about 322.59MB, and shifts the build number of the device to ASJ3 — with the full software version being N970U1UEV1ASJ3 for the Note 10 and N975U1UEV1ASJ3 for the Notre 10+.

The changelog on the Unlocked models states improvements in camera picture quality and better stability in Keyboard sound. The update also comes with the latest October 2019 Android security patches. Besides the changes mentioned above, the update doesn’t seem to bring any new features.

It’s important to note that this could be the last update to Note 10 and Note 10 Plus before Samsung starts rolling out Android 10-based One UI 2 software to its recent-most flagship devices. However, the company did release an update with November 2019 security patch to Note 10 units in Europe earlier this week. Last week, the company started seeding the Note 10 and Note 10+ units in Europe with the One UI 2 beta update and November 2019 security. A similar update was later pushed to Note 10 devices in the US.
