The first Galaxy S20 units are already receiving the July security patch in Korea, but in the US, the slow carrier rollout of the June update continues to arrive on many people's phones. S10 and Note10 owners on Verizon and Note9 users on T-Mobile can look forward to the patch, which is only now starting to roll out to them. Along with the security enhancements, the phones are getting smaller system and performance improvements.
When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note10, it also introduced a new game streaming platform called PlayGalaxy Link albeit with very little by way of concrete information. We learned soon after that it would be launching in September, and so it's come to pass. The Playgalaxay.com site is now live and the Android app is available for download.
T-Mobile has officially turned on its 600MHz-based 5G network, claiming 1 million square miles of coverage across urban and rural areas with service possible to more than 200 million people. With the launch, the carrier has summed up what customers can expect from the new spectrum.
You don't need to pay $1,000 to get a terrific phone. In fact, you don't even need to pay $1,000 to get one of the best Android phones on the market right now. Case in point: Microsoft is selling a whole bunch of Galaxy Note10+ on eBay for $700.
Hot on the heels of pumping out the final stable build of Android 10 One UI 2.0 for its Galaxy S10 series, Samsung has released the third Android 10 beta update for the Galaxy Note 10 in India and Germany, curiously skipping over South Korea. Besides fixing a whole bunch of bugs, the third beta brings up the Note10 family to the December Android security patch level.
Even though AT&T was the first in the United States to boast a 5G network, as yet, its millimeter wave service has only been available on to enterprise customers with a Netgear hotspot. But after Sprint put out its wider-reaching next-gen towers and with T-Mobile waiting in the wings, Ma Bell has now decided to allow regular consumers to use a phone on a new, low-band 5G grid in five markets over the next few weeks and ten more by mid-2020.
It's about showtime for Samsung as we find out just what has been true about the Galaxy Note10 and Note10+ (and, not likely, but maybe, just maybe, the Note 10 Pro). If you've made it here and don't want to shuffle through YouTube to get a view of the Unpacked livestream, lucky you: we've got it right here.
