Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and S9 series confirmed to receive One UI 2.5
Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 20 earlier this month, with phones running a new form of its skin—One UI 2.5. As is typical, Samsung will roll out the One UI 2.5 update with all its features to its older devices. Surprisingly, some of the devices that will get the update are the two-year-old Galaxy Note 9 and S9 series.
The company had this to say in its official press release for the One UI 2.5 rollout:
Updates available on following devices: Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, S20 Ultra, S20+ 5G, S20+, S20 5G, S20/S10 5G, S10+, S10, S10e, S10 Lite, S9, S9+/Note10+ 5G, Note10+, Note10 5G, Note10, Note10 Lite, Note9/Z Flip 5G, Z Flip, Fold 5G, Fold. For other Galaxy devices, Samsung is committed to providing the latest update until the hardware specifications allow to provide the optimized mobile experience for our users. Supported features may vary by devices.
It's a pleasant surprise that the Galaxy Note 9 and S9 will receive the update, as there were doubts months back regarding their chances of getting the One UI 2.1 update. That update has since rolled out for the phones, though. It's unknown when the S9 and Note 9 will receive the One UI 2.5 update. The rollout just started with the S20 series; following that should be the S10 and Note 10 series, then the Note 9 and S9 lineup.
