So Android 11 OneUI 3 beta was announced for your Note10+ N975F in the UK.
I was able to capture the link after enrolling to the beta.

Short guide:
If you do not understand how to install it, please stick to the stable version.
Betas are usually filled with bugs and a user with not much knowledge on these stuff, will frick out if anything goes wrong

After downloading it, rename it to ota.zip to get rid of the .bin extension
Reboot your phone to "Recovery Mode" and sideload the new "ota.zip" through your pc using adb tools to do so
ADB Tools are available here

SD-card method: by @henklbr
1. Download the bin file and rename it to update.zip (by going to file options in win10 you can select to view the file extensions. This makes the renaming process much easier and safer, and avoids renaming the file to update.zip.zip)
2. Copy it to the root directory of your SDcard.
3. Shut down your phone.
4. Hold simultaneously Power+volume up buttons to get into stock recovery.
5. Using your volume keys navigate to "update via SdCard" and press power button to select it.
6. Again using volume keys navigate to the file "update.zip" and press power button to select it.
7. Update will start. Leave it till it completes. It will take some time.
8. Phone will reboot by itself and load android.

Links:
Beta1 ONLY FOR TJ4 stable!!
Please install it over TJ4, not older or newer stable versions
Make sure that you have installed the European version and NOT the StarWars themed one
Here is the link
Here is the mirror on GDrive, which is already renamed to BETA1.zip

Beta2
It MUST be flashed over Beta1
Link here

Beta3
It must be installed over Android 10 TL3 and NOT over Beta2
Link here

Warning:
Unfortunately, you wont be able to receive ANY more OTAs after installing this specific update UNLESS you are enrolled to the beta programme!!!
ONLY N975F, NO 5G, NO ANYTHING ELSE APART N975F
After installing the beta update it isn't possible to reboot in to recovery via the VolUP+power button.
You will have to use ADB for that: "./adb reboot recovery"

let someone say if it is possible to upload only the file without using ADB
@t-shock Could you add this to the instructions?

SD-card method:
1. Download the bin file and rename it to update.zip (by going to file options in win10 you can select to view the file extensions. This makes the renaming process much easier and safer, and avoids renaming the file to update.zip.zip)
2. Copy it to the root directory of your SDcard.
3. Shut down your phone.
4. Hold simultaneously Power+volume up buttons to get into stock recovery.
5. Using your volume keys navigate to "update via SdCard" and press power button to select it.
6. Again using volume keys navigate to the file "update.zip" and press power button to select it.
7. Update will start. Leave it till it completes. It will take some time.
8. Phone will reboot by itself and load android.

Adb is the only way? What about update.zip through the recovery mode?

ADB installation worked just fine. I really dont know about sd card method

There is no problem. I reinstalled A10 and then applied the update through ADB to verify that everything is ok and yes everything is ok, despite that message

Adb is the only way? What about update.zip through the recovery mode?
ADB is the only tested method by me. I havent tested sd card so I cant tell you for sure

You are on the correct build

SD-card method:
1. Download the bin file and rename it to update.zip (by going to file options in win10 you can select to view the file extensions. This makes the renaming process much easier and safer, and avoids renaming the file to update.zip.zip)
2. Copy it to the root directory of your SDcard.
3. Shut down your phone.
4. Hold simultaneously Power+volume up buttons to get into stock recovery.
5. Using your volume keys navigate to "update via SdCard" and press power button to select it.
6. Again using volume keys navigate to the file "update.zip" and press power button to select it.

    Hello friends. For those who are now on beta2 and do not want to dump data, upgrade to beta3 then:
    1. Flash odin to N975FXXS6DTL3 with home_csc, remove "Auto_reboot".
    2. Reboot into recovery and update from SD or adb to beta 3.
    Everything works, the data is in place.:cowboy:
