A Portugese YouTuber called Dudu Rocha has demonstrated what may be Samsung's next major software upgrade on camera. This ROM, which was shown in comparison to a second phone running One UI 1.0, exhibits an About page that clearly shows Android 10 as its OS version. If valid, it indicates that some Galaxy Note 10 features are coming to older flagships with this update.

A YouTuber called Dudu Rocha claims to have downloaded a build of One UI 2.0 onto his Samsung Galaxy S10+. This OS is likely to be the next major iteration of mobile device software from this OEM, based on Android 10.

The video appears to show that the Galaxy S10+ is indeed working on an updated version of both One UI and Android, especially compared to the Galaxy S9-series device running an official build next to it. In terms of functions, it appears to use the Android 10 gesture-based navigation seen in other preview ROMs, as well as its localized privacy features.

Moreover, it appears to show One UI-specific features, such as a notification slider that occupies more of the screen, and yet has a more compact time and date, in the alleged 2.0. One shot also seems to indicate that the phone has Link to Windows, a new PC-connecting option that was introduced with the Galaxy Note 10 series.

Therefore, it appears that One UI 2.0 will transfer features from Samsung's new flagships to slightly older ones. Then again, it cannot be said for sure that this apparent demonstration is genuine. For one thing, the vlogger does not offer a download link to this apparently leaked ROM anywhere. Secondly, the Galaxy S10+ in the video seems to reboot itself spontaneously at one point.

On the other hand, this could be expected from an unofficial, unreleased beta. Otherwise, the vlogger seems to assert that some aspects of the phone, particularly its ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, run faster in this OS compared to that on the S9. This software is discussed in detail on Rocha's video; however, it should be noted that it is entirely in Portuguese.
