Best Galaxy S20 features will be out soon for the Galaxy S10 and Note 10

Samsung recently confirmed that it’s working on One UI 2.1 for existing flagships like the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy Note 10. This wasn’t surprising as Samsung’s new flagship series come with the latest iteration of One UI that eventually makes its way to other devices as well.

However, it seems that Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 owners may not have to wait until One UI 2.1 is released to get the new features that are part and parcel of this update. Samsung today confirmed that it’s going to bring all of the best Galaxy S20 features to the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 soon.

Galaxy S20’s best features coming to existing flagships

Samsung was always going to bring the Galaxy S20’s best features to other devices, it was only a matter of when it got around to doing that. Samsung Netherlands sent out a press release today to confirm that all of the best Galaxy S20 features will be released for the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 via a software update at the end of this month.

The features will include Single Take, a new camera mode that Samsung introduced with the Galaxy S20. It has become quite popular since it lets you effortlessly capture the perfect moment. Single Take can capture a mix of ten photos and four videos so you can choose which ones you’d want to keep and share, instead of having to decide whether to take a photo or record a video of the moment.

Pro Mode for Video will also be coming to existing flagships. It will allow you to adjust shutter speed, ISO and exposure for videos. The ability to switch between the front and rear cameras while a video is recording will also be brought over. This will be a very useful feature for those who tend to vlog with their smartphones. Night Hyperlapse is another new camera feature that’s arriving on the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 lineup.

This software update will bring some of the other best Galaxy S20 features as well. Quick Crop will let you easily cut images exactly to the size you want. Clean View will bring all photos of the same subject together automatically while Bixby Integration will let you create albums with voice commands.

Quick Share, Samsung’s AirDrop alternative, is headed to the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 as well. It lets you share photos, videos and large files directly with multiple people around you. Music Share will enable you to share your phone’s Bluetooth connection to a speaker so that you don’t have to disconnect before your friends can play music. They can just piggyback off of your phone’s Bluetooth connection to the speaker.

It seems Samsung is doing the same thing it did last year when it rolled out the Galaxy Note 10’s features to the Galaxy S10. The Galaxy Note 10 came with One UI 1.5 yet all of its features were released for the Galaxy S10 while it was still on One UI 1.1 through a software update. So while One UI 2.1 will arrive for existing flagships in due course, we’ll be able to take advantage of all of these best Galaxy S20 features on our 2019 flagships starting later this month.

What about the most useful new camera feature: the 4K mode in Super Steady? The cheaper S10 Lite has this from its inception. Oh, and also include the Google Live Translation for videos and FullHD Google Duo.

The Note 9 had the pro/manual video mode that was inexplicably taken away with the very long awaited Android 9 update. It was a feature I used frequently; hence, this will probably be my last Samsung device.

They’ll add it again with one ui 2.1 which is coming in May or June I thinks.

So they are adding a 120hz screen and a daily 5G GPS bug that makes navigation unusable?

120Hz is “Hardware”-related, and can’t be added by Software…

Yeah, I know. That and 5G are the biggest differentiators from the S10’s. So it’s silly to say they are bringing it’s best features to last year’s model.

Pro video & smart selfie. Not sure about Bixby Routines and the single take

That’s great. Looking forward to the single take and video pro mode in particular. It will add more to the great camera on my Note10 plus and of course on the S10. Looking forward to seeing it!!

Honestly the only thing I need is the new version (11.0.50.xx) of Samsung launcher, already existing on One UI 2.1. This one adds a news contextual menΓΊ inside multitasking and maie the gestures more fluid.

Especially nothing new of those crap on S20 really need πŸ™‚ for me update about nothing

Actually the S20 devices really are crap. Huawei and Xiaomi have been using liquid cooling or graphite to keep their phones from overheating but Samsung has only been using a small amount of thermal paste which is not even close to sufficient for dispersing the heat generated by faster charging standards or Snapdragon chips with an external modem. Samsung already knew this from the overheating issues with its 5G models from last year but still did zip. Now there are widespread reports of overheating issues across the entire S20 line that owners think will be fixed with a future software… Read more »

I don’t know what are you talking about πŸ™„ 1) My S20+ is not even overheating. The only time I got it overheated was when I watched a movie online on a site which used a poor video player. I’m a heavy user and not even games are overheating the phone. You shall reach us things after you have tested the phone yourself for days. 2) We have liquid cooling… Seriously, look at the teardowns and you’ll see it. S10 had it, Note 10 too and S20 has it too. “overheating issues across the entire S20 line” πŸ˜‚ big words.… Read more »

Also there’s no thermal paste as I can see 🀣 Your information is partially correct. On my S9 yes, there’s a lot of overheating! It lacks a liquid cooling chamber. Fortunately, now I’m not burning my hands with the GS20+ πŸ˜…

The truth hurts what? that this update will be a lot about nothing πŸ™‚ njn so keep whining the kid

I think the update that we are talking about and the 1 UI 2.1 update is same.

Does look like it. Unless not sll components of One UI 2.1 will be included initially. Good news anyway.

How many people are wondering about some better sharing ONLY among the galaxies? No one and work with video? This is the same spout in the chin: X

If it works for Apple and iPhones, which have a lower number of devices sold compared to the Galaxy line, why not having something similar for the 300 million devices Samsung sells each year? ‘ONLY’ in this case is an understatement.
