The update is rolling out with the N97xFXXS4CTD1 software version and it is currently available in Europe. The list of countries getting this update includes France, Germany, Poland, and Switzerland. However, this update is only reaching the Exynos variants, in other words, the Global variants. The 5G version is excluded for the initial rollout, for uncertain reasons. Galaxy Note 10 latest update is an incremental update including some small bugfixes and performance improvements. The biggest add-on is the May 2020 security patch. This is the first update to come after One UI 2.1 has been rolled out for the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ devices. Interestingly enough, the OTA build includes a new bootloader (v4). That means that users won’t be able to perform manual downgrade after getting this update. The OTA is rolling out in a gradual form. So it may take a few days to reach all eligible smartphones. Worth noting that owners of the Galaxy Note 10 with the Snapdragon 855 will have to wait a bit longer. After all, this update can’t be cross-flashed between the two variants. SourceRead More…

iQOO UI will reach older smartphones in the coming months

The brand grew in popularity and this made Vivo free iQOO from its ties. The next step would be launching a new exclusive software for iQOO smartphones and that happened with the iQOO 3 5G. Today, the company revealed the iQOO Neo 3 as the world’s cheapest Snapdragon 865-powered smartphone and it runs iQOO UI straight out of the box. The good news is that older iQOO smartphones will also receive the new interface through a future software update. According to iQOO’s announcement, the company will start to update the older handsets in mid-June. However, this seems to be covering only the Chinese market. The Global variants will likely receive it a few months after the Chinese versions. The iQOO UI will be based on Android 10 and should reach the iQOO Neo, Neo 855, Neo 855 Racing, and iQOO Pro. Although the 5G variant of iQOO Pro is absent of this list, we see no reason for the company to not update it.

Vivo is not the best company when it comes to updating its software, however, it is trying to improve with the FunTouch OS 10 update. Let’s see how iQOO will operate in this aspect. Read More…
