Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and 10+ get their first update ahead of August 23 launch
Both Galaxy Note 10 and 10+ are set to hit the shelves on August 23, but before that happens, Samsung is updating the flagships with a handful of enhancements that should further improve some of the phones' component.

The update spotted by SamMobile is now making its way to some European markets and India. We did not receive it yet, but we should get it as well by the time the Galaxy Note 10 and 10+ make their retail debut.

As far as the changes go, firmware version N97*FXXU1ASH5 improves quite a lot of things, including the fingerprint sensor, performance of touchscreen, the stability of the camera, and camera picture quality.

Also, the update includes the August security patch, the latest security update released by Google. The update weighs about 310MB, so it's not too big, but it's nice to see Samsung improving these devices before they even hit the stores.

If you've already placed a pre-order for either of the two Samsung flagships, make sure to check for the new update once you get your phone.

This is why you don't do reviews before launch of a phone. You guys are a joke honestly!

It's ok for reviewers to do an early review once they get their phone in their hands. I wish they fix their battery tests though.

But you don't post a full review less than 24 hrs of unboxing the phone.

How about you don't frequent a website in which you don't agree with the review standards? EZ solution lol

Or you can call them out on their bogus review standards. Easier solution. Lol.

I think they knew it will get updated soon, maybe just the day of release as sometimes Samsung does, so they rushed the review...unlike the case with iPhone where they waited 5 days after the release ;)

But everyone does reviews, so how are they any different from anyone else? Phones are always gonna be updated regardless of when you do a review.

Yeah jumped the gun with the review big time. Wanted to be the 1st review on the web for those clicks. Quite sad tbh pre sale software installed.

I think as long as reviews are updated after the official release it's fine.

Well this site doesn't do that, for Samsung phones. They do for iPhone though.

Let's go ahead and bump the "score" to 9.3, and change the "camera to barely beats pixel and iphone" to what it should read to just "beats" ( which I dont think occured...pixel all day). I'm glad to see they are updating the phone makes me happy to have re-ordered my pre-order.

PA, why was the review done so quickly? Why not wait till after a couple weeks of real world usage?
