Key One UI 2.0 features and improvements highlighted, beta still elusive

Samsung was supposed to release the Android 10 beta for the Galaxy S10 today. It emerged earlier today that the beta was going to be delayed. Samsung later confirmed this to us as well. It now expects to release the beta by mid-October.

It could be at least a week before it starts rolling out the beta firmware. However, it appears that at least one device got the beta firmware, so we now have some details about the key features that Samsung is introducing with this major firmware update.

One UI 2.0 features and improvements

The device in question belongs to PhoneArena. It’s a Galaxy S10+ which is now on firmware version G975FXXU3ZSJ6 which brings Android 10 with One UI 2.0 and the October 2019 security patch.

One UI itself was a very significant redesign of Samsung’s user interface when it was introduced last year. It was evident from the beginning that this wouldn’t be the case for One UI 2.0. So there won’t be any major differences, visual at least, when trying out One UI 2.0 for the first time.

As One UI 2.0 is based on Android 10, it brings Google’s new gestures for navigation, which allow you to swipe from the sides and the bottom. The back gesture sensitivity option will help those who use a bulky case that makes it difficult for them to do the Back gesture at the edge of the screen.

Device Care has received an upgrade as well with One UI 2.0. Some of the sections have been redesigned to show the information in a cleaner manner. Accessing the One-handed mode now requires you to swipe down from the bottom of the screen.

The Wireless Powershare feature gets battery percentage limits. You can set any battery level between 30 and 90 percent. When the phone’s battery reaches that level, the PowerShare feature will be disabled automatically. It previously used to do that only when the phone’s battery reached 30 percent.

Some subtle changes have been made to the user interface as well. The native apps have been updated with Contacts getting a Trash option, much like Gallery did with One UI 1.0, to store deleted contacts for up to 15 days before they’re deleted for good.

We expect to hear more about One UI 2.0 in the coming days. Samsung will hopefully be rolling out the Galaxy S10 Android 10 beta sooner rather than later. Like what you see so far?
