  • "Added ability to use Android 10's navigation gestures in third-party launchers." Does this mean Nova Launcher Prime is included on this list?! Edited**Nevermind I can confirm it does work 100% with ONEUI 2.5! (Finallyyyy)
  • I have the S9+ and from what I understand the S9+ won't receive UI 2.5. Bummer....for I use Nova Launcher and love it.
  • Verizon just pushed this update as well
  • Canada is waiting Samsung (and respective mobile carriers). Can you please hit the magic switch that makes it available?
  • Hopefully the S10 series also receives support for wireless Dex
