One UI 2.1 update rolling out to Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 users
Technically, Samsung's Galaxy S20 series did launch with Android 10 out of the box. There were some new features added to it, which is why Samsung called it One UI 2.1 instead of One UI 2.0. The Korean telecommunication behemoth promised that One UI 2.1 would make its way to older devices.
Now, some Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 users have begun receiving it on their devices. Scattered reports from users based in Germany and Switzerland indicate that the One UI 2.1 update is making its way to a host of devices including the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus, Galaxy Note 10, and Galaxy Note 10 Plus. Even the Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite have received the update, sans a few features.
It is a reasonably hefty update that weighs in at a little over 1.5GB. Let's take a look at what it has in store for us. One UI 2.1 brings forth a highly-sought-after feature in the form of Quick Share. It lets you share files with other Samsung phones via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi direct. Android's default file-sharing system is in shambles, and it's good to see OEMs like Samsung develop solutions for the problem.
Most of the other One UI 2.1 features are camera-centric. It adds a new Pro Video Mode and Night Hyperlapse Mode and improves the existing Night Mode. Lastly, there's a new Single Take option in the camera app that automatically shoots photos and videos of an object with all available camera lenses. You can then pick the images and videos you liked from the lot.
The One UI 2.1 update comes with the yet-to-be-released April security patch and will be available to all eligible devices in the coming weeks.
