Samsung rep hints at One UI 2.1 for Galaxy S9 being on the cards, again


Last updated: April 17th, 2020 at 15:22 UTC+01:00

The Galaxy S9 series may yet receive the One UI 2.1 update, at least according to a new screenshot revealing a discussion between a Samsung India representative and a Galaxy S9+ user. It claims there’s still a chance for the S9 series to receive One UI 2.1, but the representative was unable to confirm an exact date.

This new statement follows another recent ‘confirmation’ about One UI 2.1 still being in the works for the Galaxy Note 9 series. And if you’re wondering, we have to use quotation marks because Samsung representatives have contradicted themselves before, even as far as the 2018 flagships are concerned. Not long ago, a notification was sent through the Samsung Members app in South Korea, informing Galaxy Note 9 (and implicitly Galaxy S9) owners that there are no plans to release One UI 2.1 for these devices. That was after the update was initially ‘confirmed’ to be on its way.

The recent Galaxy Note 10 Lite update might be a sign of things to come

While Samsung’s forum moderators haven’t always been right about the availability of firmware updates, there seems to be some hope that One UI 2.1 will eventually be released for the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 lineups. Particularly, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite just received the One UI 2.1 update, and the aforementioned device uses the same chipset as the one found inside the 2018 flagships. This throws any excuses Samsung might have for the SoC not being able to handle One UI 2.1 out the window. Then again, it doesn’t guarantee a release for the S9/Note 9 either.

We still advise you to remain skeptical and not get your hopes up too high based on these recent occurrences. Nothing seems to be set in stone just yet, but we will keep you up to date as soon as we learn more on this front. Stay tuned.
