Galaxy Note 9 One UI 2.1 update is now rolling out!


Last updated: June 10th, 2020 at 11:45 UTC+02:00

Galaxy Note 9 owners are in for a treat this week, as Samsung has released the One UI 2.1 update for its 2018 Note flagship. It was expected that One UI 2.1 would hit both the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy Note 9 in Korea first, but the update has made its debut in Germany, where it is rolling out with firmware version N960FXXU5ETF5 and the June 2020 security patch.

Galaxy Note 9 One UI 2.1 features

So what’s new in the Galaxy Note 9 One UI 2.1 update? Well, as you would expect, it does not bring all of the features that debuted with One UI 2.1 on the Galaxy S20 series. From what we can see, you get the Quick Share and Music Share features, which let you share files and your Bluetooth audio connection with other devices respectively.

In the Camera app, Samsung has added the Single Take mode, which captures a series of pictures and videos when you tap the shutter button, along with the ability to create custom filters. Pro video recording is making a return after it was removed with the One UI 1.0 update. It’s the full-fledged version that lets you control the shutter speed in addition to other parameters such as ISO and white balance. Finally, there’s AR Zone, which puts all augmented reality features — such as AR Emoji and AR Doodle — in a single location.

One UI 2.1 for the Galaxy Note 9 is likely going to take a few days to reach other markets, though we can expect Samsung to not take too long to make it available globally. The Galaxy S9 and S9+, meanwhile, could start getting One UI 2.1 from next week. German Galaxy Note 9 users can download the 1.2GB update over the air from the phone’s Settings » Software update menu; the One UI 2.1 firmware is also available for download in our archive.
