Just a few days ago, we brought news about the deployment of the fourth Android 10-based beta update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Now, all of sudden, the South-Korean giant is rolling out the fifth OneUI 2.0 firmware release for the 2018’s flagship. The former king of phablets was released with Android 8.1 Oreo. Some months later, it received Android 9 Pie update. The device debuted with the old Samsung UX interface and evolved with the arrival of OneUI. Now, the 2018 flagship will receive a new overhaul thanks to the changes brought by One UI 2.0.
Worth noting that this update is currently limited to the South-Korean stronghold. However, we expect to see a broader rollout in the coming days covering other regions such as India and Europe. The quick advancement of the Galaxy Note 9 update program is ensuring that all bugs are squashed for a final stable released early in January 2020. For that reason, the latest update brings just two minor bugfixes. The first one aims to tackle a problem with Quick Panel Icons. The second fix is all about improving the fingerprint authentication in Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass.

If no critical bug is found during this rollout, then the Fifth One UI 2.0 beta can be the last one.

According to the company’s roadmap, owners of these 2018 flagships will be running Android 10 stable release until the end of January.
