The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 receives One UI 2.5 update
Samsung has started rolling out One UI 2.5 to the Galaxy Note 9, the third version of One UI that the company has brought to the former flagship. Samsung confirmed in August that it would be bringing One UI 2.5 to the Note 9, but it has taken a while longer for the update to arrive than it did for the Galaxy S10 series.
Currently, the update has reached handsets in Germany, where the update has been assigned the build number N960FXXU6FTJ3M. This will not be the final update for the Note 9 though, as Samsung will continue to furnish it with security patches for another year. However, One UI 2.5 will probably be the last major update that the Note 9 will receive. Consequently, we do not expect Samsung to upgrade the Note 9 to One UI 3.0 and Android 11.
One UI 2.5 introduces quite a few changes to the Note 9, despite its incremental name. One new feature is wireless DeX, as is the ability to vary resolution and framerates in Pro video mode. Additionally, One UI 2.5 adds Single Take mode to the camera app, while the Samsung Keyboard app can now operate as a split keyboard in landscape mode. You can now search YouTube from within the default keyboard, too. That list of changes in not exhaustive, but Samsung will include all the changes that it has made with One UI 2.5 in the changelog.
