The Samsung Galaxy S9, S9 Plus and Note 9 receive One UI 2.5 updates in another region
One UI 2.5 has reached yet more versions of Samsung's former flagships. The OS update will be the end of the road for handsets before the Galaxy S10 series, even if it is only update 2.5 for those that Samsung released in 2018. Nonetheless, Samsung has now committed to providing three years of software updates to its newer devices, which is good news. The Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 series should receive another year of security patch updates.
Unlocked versions of the Galaxy Note 9 started receiving One UI 2.5 last month, albeit in Germany. Samsung then began updating the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus shortly afterwards, again starting in Germany. Apparently, One UI 2.5 has not reached unlocked versions, though. In fact, German owners of the Galaxy Note 9 should now be seeing an update that contains the November 2020 set of security patches.
T-Mobile and Verizon editions of the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 series must make do with the October 2020 security patches, but at least the update also contains One UI 2.5. Samsung has incorporated a few new features into One UI with version 2.5, including wireless DeX. Samsung has also made changes to the stock camera and keyboard apps. If you have not received a notification to download One UI 2.5 on your Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus yet, then you could try searching for updates manually.
