Samsung has greatly improved its software support in the past two years. Since the arrival of One UI, Samsung decided to build a new software philosophy based in important features and constant software support. Shortly after the Android 11 release by Google, the Korean firm started work on its One UI counterpart. The first devices to get it were the 2020 flagships followed by the 2019 flagships. Now, the brand started to bring this update for some of its mid-range devices. The latest device to enter the Android 11 era is the Samsung Galaxy Note10 Lite.
The Galaxy Note10 Lite was introduced several months after the original Note10. The device is what we can call a “cost-effective” flagship bringing all the appeal of the Note 10 series to an affordable pricing point. The device came with Android 10 straight out of the box and is now getting the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update. The software has an N770FXXU7DUA8 model number and will get January 2021 security patch. Currently, the update is rolling out in France. However, we expect a broader rollout to come in the coming days. You can try your luck by force checking the update via the Settings >> Software update >> Download and Install menu.
As aforementioned, this is the first major OS upgrade for the Galaxy Note10 Lite. OneUI 3.0 brings a set of new goodies for the handset including a refreshed UI and more organized controls. Android 11 already brings its own goodies such as one-time permission controls, organized notifications, and more.
