T-Mobile Galaxy Note 10+ 5G will launch with Android 10 out of the box


Thinking about buying a Galaxy Note 10+ 5G this week? If you do, you’ll be greeted by a nice little surprise when you boot it up.

T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note 10+ 5G comes with Android 10 and Samsung One UI 2.0 out of the box. Confirmed by T-Mobile’s Des Smith, this news is notable because it means the T-Mo Note 10+ 5G is the first Samsung phone to ship with Android 10 in tow.

It’s expected that Samsung will begin updating the regular Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ will to Android 10 in January, but there’s no word yet on when that update will arrive on T-Mobile devices.

The OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition that’s coming to T-Mobile will also ship with Android 10 out of the box, so no matter which of T-Mo’s new 5G phones you choose, you will be on the latest version of Android.

Both the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G and OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition are now available for pre-order from T-Mobile. They’ll launch in stores this Friday, December 6th.

    What new band does this have over the regular note 10 plus?

        Is N71 only good for low-band 5G or good for millimeter wave 5g also?

        • Yonatan Ben Magen

          No phone supports both yet. T-mo only has low-band 5G ATM -thus the new phones launch to Tx/Rx low-band 5G

  • Ron Kinsey

    I wonder if they will ship early? I ordered one today the 4th.

  • James B

    I wonder if this 5G version will be available via Samsung. And come with Android 10 as well?

  • 256gb only? Wtf. I’ll wait for next year’s note.

  • David

    Does this include both UWB 5g and 600 Mhz 5g?

    • Yonatan Ben Magen

      No -Tmo doesn’t support UWB i.e. nnMw no phone does yet either or for now.

      But nnMw is limited anyways. But Sprint merger will add mid spectrum 5G which is more useable but the 1Gbps dl speeds are mostly vaporware in 99.999% of US locations.

    Ordered the McLaren since I’m using the Regular Note 10+ now. Looking forward to doing speed test around the city when it arrives. Wonder if we should update our sim cards to the one that comes with the phone

    • Ron Kinsey

      Customer service says my old Sim will work fine.

  • Jesus the price tag is wheewwww

  • Aaron A.

    I preordered it yesterday, Half off with Note 9 trade in.

  • NardVa

    The regular Note 10 is $950 (which is overpriced), but the Note 10 5G is $1300. Does T-Mobile and Samsung think their consumers are stupid? Why would anybody pay an extra $350 for a phone that’s only adding 5G capability.

    • Gary

      Note 10 Plus 5G is buy one get one free on T-Mobile.

      • dcmanryan

        True. But that doesn’t change the MSRP is WAY over priced. Samsung has almost caught up with LG in how quickly their phones are discounted and anyone who buys one for MSRP out the gate is either dumb or that person that has to have the latest and greatest on release day and then complains when the price goes down.

      • Waboo

        BOGO with adding a new line.

    • g2a5b0e

      It’s the Note 10+ 5G, so you should be comparing it to the Note 10+ which is $1,100. You’re paying an extra $200 for 5G. I still don’t think it’s worth it, but it’s the accurate comparison.

  • TheRealKingSen

    Can’t believe people are paying over $1000 for cell phones these days

    • riverhorse

      Well, not all top flagship buyers are. The sly ones only paid high on their very first flagship years back. Then every year or two they pay half price with the best trade in and/or port in and/or retail deal available… Rinse, lather, repeat… About the same price as those who avoid the top flagships end up paying for lesser phones but without the perks of the faster modem/storage/memory/mst/XPay/etc.
      It hurt the first time only, then momentum took over and has kept the good times rolling.

      • Yonatan Ben Magen

        Agreed, last December I traded in a S8+ that was BOGO ($790) deal at Costco June 2017 (include two free 32″ Samsung TV and free TYLT cell accessory pack, portable batt, cables, 12v auto charger and dual wall charger).

        Note 9 with Citi Costco visa card promo + executive membership 17% cashback and S8+ trade in my net cost after trade-in and promos = $37.50 but I did have to pay for phone up front (credit and cash back came later). S9+ Spring 2018, Costco deal bill credit on EIP two phones net cost $220/ea after promos – no trade-in.

        Note 9 Trade-in credit ($650) toward unlocked Note 10 or 10+

      iPhone pro max start at $1050 for 64GB and everybody wants it

    Funny how T-mobile can launch with Android 10 and they can’t seem to get it on there other Flagship Phones the S10 series. Explain this T-mobile?
