Note 10 Galaxy Note 10 isn’t supported by Android 13 as well so it won’t be getting the beta version.

Both phones will receive OneUI 5.0 as well as Android 13 once they are made available to the general public.
Samsung’s Galaxy Z fold 3, Galaxy Flip 4 and Galaxy Z flip Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3, Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip 5G are all compatible with One UI 5.0 therefore it’s likely they’ll receive the beta firmware too.
