One UI 2.1 for Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 could arrive next month

When a new Galaxy S or Note flagship arrives, it comes with a newer version of Samsung’s software than preceding flagships. For example, the Galaxy S10 series introduced One UI 1.1 while the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 were running One UI 1.0, and the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ introduced One UI 1.5 while the Galaxy S10 was running One UI 1.1. Similarly, the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra come with One UI 2.1 out of the box while the Galaxy S10, Note 10, Galaxy S9, and Galaxy Note 9 are all running One UI 2.0 at this moment.

And, traditionally, users of those older flagships would have to wait until the next major Android update before their device would receive the updated version of One UI. That is not the case this time around. Samsung recently revealed that an update to One UI 2.1 is in the works for the Galaxy S and Note flagships from 2018 and 2019, and it looks like that update could arrive before the end of April. A Samsung community moderator has revealed that the company is aiming to release One UI 2.1 for at least the Galaxy S10e, S10, S10+, and S10 5G in the next three weeks.

There’s a good reason for Samsung to bring One UI 2.1 to these existing flagships as soon as it possibly can, as the usefulness of one of the best new Galaxy S20 features depends on more and more users having access to One UI 2.1. The Galaxy S20 and Z Flip come with Quick Share, a feature that allows users to quickly send across files to owners of other Galaxy device owners over a Wi-Fi connection. Quick Share is a One UI 2.1 feature, however, so without devices like the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 running the newest version of the software, it’s more or less useless right now for anyone not owning a Galaxy S20 or Galaxy Z Flip.

One UI 2.5 will arrive with the Galaxy Note 20

Samsung’s community moderators have also revealed that the company is working on One UI 2.5, which will probably debut with the Galaxy Note 20 in the second half of this year. One UI 2.5 will no doubt come to the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy Note 10 as well, but only with the Android 11 update. Not a lot is known about One UI 2.5 at this time, except that it will enable the use of Google’s navigation gestures in third-party launchers, though more information is likely to show up in the future, either through Samsung’s community forums or through Galaxy Note 20 leaks that are guaranteed to happen as we get closer to the device’s launch.

Have you guys considered the Note 10 a “downgrade” of sorts compared to the Note 9? As someone who has not owned a Note device is the Note 9 still a great choice as a productivity machine?

I am owner of N9750 on android 10 came last update on 10.012020, and never came another update till than. It came on other note 10 + models. This smartphone cost so much and you can give us updates on time? Update doesn’t come already 3 month to fix bugs on games and on optimization

I have n9570 Hong Kong and I have the same problem.
I never buy Samsung smart phone. I am really disappointed. It is illegally and Samsung should release update for all flagships every month up to 2 year’s at least.

Has anyone noticed that the animation on the s10 series has start to lag and stutter after march security update.
Even factory reset doesn’t solve it.
You can notice it when switching apps, scrolling through homepage and app screen.

Hope Samsung isn’t doing this on purpose to boost the sales of S20.

sounds like a problem with your phone. on my s10 plus exynos everything has been completely smooth since the March update. Try out to optimised your phone with the app booster. otherwise your phone is broken. However, I can only speak for exynos models

I didnt had this issue before the march security update.
there is only stuttering in the animation.
the phone itself is giving the same performance speed as before, its as fast as it was brand new.

Nope…honestly, at least on mine. Try to factory reset your phone and checking every app installed by you during the restore process.
