Galaxy S10 series starts getting One UI 2.5 update
Six months ago, we had reported that Samsung is developing One UI 2.5 for its smartphones. The new software debuted with the Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, and the Galaxy Tab S7 series. On the launch day of these devices, the South Korean firm released One UI 2.5 to the Galaxy S20 series and the Galaxy Z Flip. Now, the company has started rolling out the One UI 2.5 update to the Galaxy S10 series.
The Galaxy S10 has started receiving the One UI 2.5 update in Germany. It’s a 963.49MB update that carries firmware version G973FXXU8DTH7. The firmware versions for the Galaxy S10e and the Galaxy S10+ are G970FXXU8DTH7 and G975FXXU8DTH7, respectively.
The new software update brings along the September 2020 Android security patch. The One UI 2.5 update includes Wireless DeX, which debuted on the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Tab S7 series. It lets you mirror your smartphone’s DeX UI screen wirelessly to any TV that features Miracast. There is now a quick setting toggle for the Wireless DeX mode and options to adjust screen zoom and font size.
The new update also comes with an enhanced Pro Video Mode in the camera app, an easier way to share Wi-Fi credentials with other Galaxy devices, and the ability to search for YouTube videos in the keyboard app. The Pro Video Mode allows the selection of video resolution and frame rate, mic selection (front, rear, all, USB, or Bluetooth). The Galaxy S10 series also gets Single Take duration selection (5 seconds to 15 seconds).
Other features that are a part of the new software update for the Galaxy S10 are support for Bitmoji Stickers for the Always On Display mode, split keyboard in the landscape mode, SOS message pre-configuration, and the ability to send SOS location messages every 30 minutes for 24 hours. Bug fixes, security enhancement, and performance improvements are also a part of the update.
