The Galaxy Note 10 Lite started receiving the One UI 2.5 update, though the rollout appears to be a tightly controlled affair for now. More specifically, the new over-the-air release debuted in Spain on Tuesday, according to SamMobile‘s firmware archive, which also identify its build version as N770FXXU5CTH4. Nothing major happened ever since and it's currently unclear how many Galaxy Note 10 Lite units the OTA managed to actually reach. What's certain is that no other countries followed suit.
Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean anything, especially since the One UI 2.1 update for the Galaxy Note 10 Lite was also confined to Spain for the initial few days, so the rollout will hopefully grace more markets by the end of the week.
September 2020 Android security update is also here
Whatever the case may be, we can at least confirm the new firmware comes packaged with the latest Android security patch dated September 1st, 2020. Regarding user-facing features added to the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, the jump to One UI 2.5 may not constitute a move to Android 11 but it's still a pretty noticeable change to Samsung's custom OS. Well, it is on the select few devices that it graced so far.
Fortunately, we do have a same-generation point of reference for the Galaxy Note 10 Lite – the Galaxy S10 which is also joining the One UI 2.5 club this week. Based on that changelog, users can expect Pro Video improvements, longer photo selection periods in Single Take, Split Keyboard for landscape use, more informative interactions with select Wi-Fi routers, and a range of other quality-of-life changes. Not all of which have been decently documented, to be frank. We're still looking into the exact contents of this release and will report back with any developments.
