According to the folks at SamMobile, the One UI 2.5 update brings Wireless DeX, an improved Pro Video mode, support for Bitmoji stickers on Always On Display, the ability to search for YouTube videos in the Samsung keyboard app, an easier way to share Wi-Fi credentials, pre-configuration for SOS messages, and a few other enhancements. The latest September 2020 Android security patch is also included.
