Samsung launched its flagship S20 series early last month, offering some impressive hardware specifications. These included the 100x Space Zoom camera on the S20 Ultra, the 108MP primary shooter with Nona Binning, and up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM. On the software front, the devices rolled out with One UI 2.1 based on Android 10 that included a couple of additional features like Spotify support in the Clock app. Other than the Galaxy S20 series, the Galaxy Z Flip is the only Samsung smartphone that runs One UI 2.1 right now. However, according to a recent report from Sammobile, the company will soon roll out One UI 2.1 to the Galaxy Note 10, S10, Note 9, and S9.
The report cites a post from a Samsung community moderator on Samsung’s Korean community portal which confirms that Samsung has planned to roll out One UI 2.1 not only for last year’s Galaxy S10 and Note 10 series but also for the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 series. As of now, Samsung has not revealed a timeline for the One UI 2.1 rollout, but it’s safe to assume that the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 device will get the update before the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 devices. In terms of software features, One UI 2.1 brings relatively fewer features, including Screen Zoom, Samsung Quick Share and the aforementioned Spotify support in the Clock app. It’s also worth noting that hardware-related features like the option to switch to 120Hz refresh rate won’t be making it to older devices even after the update due to obvious lack of hardware support.
