T-Mobile rolls out Android 11 update for Samsung Galaxy S10, Note 10 series


It’s a pretty busy week for T-Mobile. Aside from the immense success from its Q4 2020 and full-year 2020, the wireless carrier has been working hard to update devices to the latest Android OS. 

Just recently, T-Mobile revealed that they are updating a number of devices from Samsung. The devices that are getting updated to the new OS include the Samsung Galaxy S10 series, Galaxy Note 10, and Galaxy Note 10+.

T-Mobile is actually late in releasing the update for the Galaxy S10 series. Samsung already deployed the update to these devices late last month. But T-Mobile is one of the carriers that took some time to test its own version and make sure it is working properly. The devices under the series include the following:

  • Samsung Galaxy S10
  • Samsung Galaxy S10+
  • Samsung Galaxy S10e
  • Samsung Galaxy S10 5G

The Android 11 update comes with One UI 3.0 features with the January 2021 Android security patch. You will need to have at least 2.2GB free storage on your device so the update will install smoothly.  

The update is not available immediately to all devices since there is a daily limit on downloads. For Galaxy S10 series phones, the limit will be lifted on February 13. The daily download limit on the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ devices will also be lifted on February 15. You can check if the update is available on your device by going to Settings > Software Update > Download and Install.

    • John Young

      yep, note 10+updated today!

  • Bemi

    I like it on my Note 10+! I hope the Note21 looks good. I’m ready.

  • JB

    I wonder why the Tab S7 tablets got One UI 3.1, Where as the Note 10 series only received just 3.0… If I was to guess, to sell more S21s

    • JiGSaW525

      S20 versions just got 3.1 update. Hopefully the T-Mobile versions will be updated to 3.1 as well.

  • Sayahh

    Weird how my news submission (this time that S9 January updates are available) wasn’t picked up. Granted many have probably used it to trade for a S21, but not everyone has.

  • pda96

    The Android 11 updates for the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 series appear to have been pulled/stopped. If you do a Google search for T-Mobile your phone model Android 11 then you’ll find the T-Mobile web page for your phone model that tells you it’s either in the development or testing phase. For example if you search for “T-Mobile Galaxy S10 Android 11” you’ll find the T-Mobile page that says it’s in the development phase.

    I tried posting all the links to all the T-Mobile Galaxy S10 and Note 10 Android 11 pages yesterday but my comment went to moderation and wasn’t released.

    • Eric A

      Something’s definitely broken about the update or the rollout or both.

    • beachmike

      Today a T-Mobile rep told me not to expect Android 11 to come to the S10 series until mid-July 2021. They admit they are completely incompetent.

      • Austin8480

        I think we have a difference in opinions on who the incompetent one is here. First of all, do you honestly expect us to believe you “spoke” to a T-mobile rep and they knowingly bash their companies engineers? These are the same engineers that are working on the 5G we will experience one day. Second, if you want Android 11 so bad, get the S21 that came out. Will be a waste of money, but you can have your precious Android 11. I personally can wait. I would rather they fix all the bugs before sending it out. If it takes all summer, so be it.

  • Madden8021

    Are we being lied to?

    I’m still waiting for it to come out and nothing has happened.

  • Austin8480

    It sounds as if the blame game is being played between Samsung and the wireless companies. Samsung tells you to call your wireless company. Wireless company tells you to call Samsung.

    T-Mobile admits they are totally clueless and incompetent with 2nd rate engineers. They say don’t expect Android 11 to come to the S10 series until mid-July at the earliest. If you are a former Sprint customer, don’t expect Android 11 until the end of 2021, if ever.

  • Loco Mole

    S10e finally got OTA this morning in Washington DC area. Checked every day since Feb 11.

    • Eric A

      Same here. DC area got OTA today.

    • Sam_K

      Thanks for this. After seeing your comment this morning I checked again and my S10+ also finally got the Android 11 update.

  • mavricxx

    Finally got mine last week. I’m loving it on my S10+. It is smooth and I like the new feel but the one thing annoying me is they changed the app folder layout, before it was like 6×6 now it’s 4×3 apps. I’m also not too crazy on the volume being on the left side of the screen now. I like the updated notifications, that is a really good upgrade.
