Samsung has officially started the One UI 2.0 beta program for the Galaxy S10, S10e and S10+ smartphones that’ll be expanded to other smartphones.
And for those who’re eagerly waiting to upgrade their S10 series smartphones, Galaxy S10, S10e, and S10+, to the latest One UI 2.0 beta can get full use of this guide.
Thanks to Xda member Cyber John for extracting the Update.ZIP file from the international variants of Galaxy S10, S10e, and S10+ (SM-G97xF). Also, thanks to another Xda member henklbr for sharing the build and guide to install this firmware.
Only proceed with the instruction after reading them through and we’ll not be held accountable for any issues occurred during or after the installation. Also, this is a manual installation process so you won’t receive further version upgrades until you are registered for the beta program.
- The following installation procedure is only for Galaxy S10, S10e, and S10+ models. So, do not try this method on other smartphones.
- Before the installation, we recommend you to take a backup of your smartphone to prevent any data loss.
- Do not disconnect or move the data cable or your phone or try to press any physical key during the installation process.
- This firmware version is only the BETA and not a stable update. It may also contain some bugs.
Download the beta firmware according to your smartphone listed below:
Samsung Galaxy S10: Beta1 (14 Oct) ASII – ZSJ8: G973F_ASII_ZSJ8
Samsung Galaxy S10e: Beta1 (14 Oct) ASII – ZSJ8: G970F_ASII_ZSJ8
Samsung Galaxy S10+: Beta1 (14 Oct) ASII – ZSJ8: G975F_ASII_ZSJ8
These are beta builds pulled off the German models (DBT) of the Galaxy S10, S10e, and S10+ running One UI 2.0 based on Android 10.
Here, the region code is DBT, but since Germans use the same device model numbers as the rest of the world that uses the Exynos variants, it is possible to install the new Android 10 beta on an Exynos variant of the S10 series.
The UPDATE.ZIP can be installed on devices with the following CSC’s: SM-G975F OXM multi CSC (ACR AFG AFR ATO AUT BGL BNG BRI CAC CAM CAU CHO COO DBT DKR ECT EGY EON EUR ILO INS ITV KSA LAO LUX MID MWD MXO MYM NEE NPL ORX PAK PEO PHE PHN ROM SEB SEE SEK SKZ SLK SMP THL THR TPA TPH TTT TUN TUR XEF XEH XEO XEU XEZ XFE XME XSG XSP XTC XXV)

Your smartphone must be running the latest build ASII in order to qualify for the Galaxy S10 series One UI 2.0 update. The device must be a multi-CSC OXM unit. To verify this, key *#1234# in the dialer and check if OXM is in the CSC-build.
