The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Android 10 update is pushing to devices around the globe which means it’s time to prepare yourself, and your device, for the move from Android Pie.
It took awhile, but Samsung’s pulled the highly anticipated Galaxy Note 9 Android 10 update out of beta testing. The update is currently rolling out in a variety of countries including Germany, India, and Turkey.
In the United States, the Galaxy Note 9 update is available for devices locked to carrier-locked models on carriers like AT&T and Xfinity Mobile.
We expect the software to other Galaxy Note 9 models in the near future so owners should keep a close eye on the roll out as we push deeper into the month.
Now that the roll out is picking up the pace there are some steps those of you on Android Pie should take before the update arrives.
The Galaxy Note 9 Android 10 update is chock full of new features including a new improved Dark Mode, full-screen gestures, and a brand new user interface dubbed One UI 2.0. It’s pretty substantial and it’s an update that most people will want to install soon after it arrives.
The software went through a lengthy beta, but some Galaxy Note 9 users are running performance issues and bugs.
It’s hard to predict how Android 10 and One UI 2.0 will run on your Note 9 so you’ll want to do some prep work before you start the download. This should help you avoid major headaches.
In this guide we’ll walk you through the steps we typically take before we install new Android software on our Galaxy devices. Keep these things in mind while you wait for your update to arrive.
Make Sure Your Data is Backed Up
Before you install Android 10 on your Note 9 you'll want to make sure all of your data is backed up properly. There are a few ways to do this.
Samsung Cloud also allows you to manually backup the important data you store on your phone.
To access Samsung Cloud, head into your Galaxy Note 9's Settings and go to Accounts and Backup . If you don't have a Samsung account you'll need to create one in order to use the service.
If you'd prefer to go with something else, there are a bunch of solid third-party applications out there. Super Backup & Restore is still one of our favorites.
