Samsung Will Update Its 2018 and 2019 Flagships to One UI 2.1

  • A moderator for Samsung Korea’s community forum has mentioned that the company will send out the One UI 2.1 update to phones like the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 9, as well as the Galaxy Note 10.
  • Unfortunately, there’s no word on when the update will be sent out to the aforementioned phones.
  • Among the notable changes that One UI 2.1 will bring is Quick Share which is Samsung’s version of Apple’s AirDrop file transfer tool.

Samsung’s One UI 2.0 was part of its update cycle last year with flagships like the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy Note 10 getting it. The company has also sent out the update to 2018 flagships like the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy Note 9. The company recently introduced a marginally improved version of the UI, known as One UI 2.1 with phones like the Galaxy Z Flip as well as the recently unveiled Galaxy S20 lineup.

Well, as per word shared by a moderator for Korea’s Samsung Community forum, the company will soon send out the One UI 2.1 update to phones like the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S10, as well as the Galaxy Note 9 and the Galaxy Note 10.

It’s worth mentioning here that One UI 2.1 doesn’t introduce any radical changes to the user interface or performance. One of its biggest inclusions is the company’s AirDrop clone known as Quick Share. This feature lets you share documents and media to nearby Samsung Galaxy devices at a rapid pace.

Unfortunately, the moderator failed to mention when the updates will reach the aforementioned devices. But if history is any indication, it’s safe to say that the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy Note 9 may have to wait a while as 2019 flagships will likely get the update first. We’re hoping to hear more about this from Samsung over the coming weeks.

Among the other changes that One UI 2.1 brings is official support for 120 Hz displays, which only applies to the Galaxy S20 lineup as of now. However, customers will certainly welcome the addition of the Quick Share feature.
