Back in June, Samsung started rolling out the One UI 2.1 update to its three-year-old Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 lineup. While everyone was expecting this to be the final major update, Samsung did the unexpected. The chaebol has now listed both the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 lineup as the devices that are eligible for the One UI 2.5 update. This comes after the South Korean giant decided not to include both the lineup to its new three-year-update policy.
Galaxy S9 and Note 9 made the list of eligible One UI 2.5 update!
The One UI 2.5 update is the company’s latest One UI software that has already started rolling out to the Galaxy S20 trio. As expected, the trio has received the update initially in the European market. The list of the eligible devices that will receive the One UI 2.5 update is given below.
- Galaxy S20 trio (already started receiving)
- The Galaxy S10 lineup
- Galaxy S10 Lite
- Galaxy Note 10 series including Note 10 Lite
- The Galaxy Fold
- Galaxy Z Flip
- Galaxy Note 9
- Lastly, Galaxy S9 duo
While the device owners are rejoicing with the inclusion of their three-year-old devices, there is a solid chance that the contrary can happen. Samsung might have ended up including these two lineups accidentally. It makes sense considering how reluctant it was at first to roll out the One UI 2.1 update. In fact, the Galaxy S9 duo and Note 9 users had to wait for a solid amount of time.
With that that said, the owners should not have high hopes in the first place. We might see some more concrete information surfacing on the web soon. Considering it is on the list, for now, it is safe to say there is still small hope for the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 lineup.
What the new One UI 2.5 update will bring to the table?
Since Samsung has now started rolling out the One UI 2.5 update to the Galaxy S20 series, we now know what the new update brings to the table. We’re looking at wireless DeX, enhanced Pro video mode along with the ability to change Single Take duration. The new update also focusses on improving the “Note” capabilities. For instance, the notes will now be stored in a new file format because of newly added features. The Note app will also come with an improved user interface.
