The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite has been issued with a new software update. It confers a fresh build of One UI 2.1 on the phone, which comes with a range of camera and AR Emoji enhancements. It also changes its security patch level to the most recent one.

Samsung is reportedly pushing a new software update to the recently-released Lite variant of the Galaxy S10. This new OTA leaves the phone on Android 10; however, this OS is now skinned with One UI 2.1 rather than 2.0 in the mid-ranger. Therefore, it contains certain new features not found in the older version of this interface.

This upgraded version of One UI 2.1 can be downloaded and installed onto the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite as the G770FXXU2BTD2 firmware. It includes a number of additional options for its default camera app, including new filters, Selfie Tone, a low-light timelapse mode, Single Take and My Filters. There is also now a Pro video mode for the S10 Lite.

This software update also allows for improved AR Emojis, with an improved ability to replicate facial expressions, manually edit the resulting cartoon avatar and add accessories to it. This version of One UI 2.1 should also come with an updated Samsung Keyboard, Music Share and Quick Share.

The Galaxy S10 Lite's new OTA may be apparent on checking for updates in the relevant area of the phone's Settings. Then again, users in Spain only have reported actual access to it thus far.
