What you need to know

  • T-Mobile users are finally getting their taste of One UI 2.1.
  • First released back in April for the S10 series, the update brings many of the S20 series features to Samsung's previous generation of flagships.
  • New features include Single Take, Night Hyperlase, Custom Filter, and more.

Nearly two months after Samsung released the latest version of its custom skin in the U.S., the magenta carrier is finally getting onboard the One UI 2.1 train for the Galaxy S10 series. As TmoNews notes, the Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e have all started receiving the update.

Alongside a whole host of features, the update also ups the phone's security patch to April 2020. The most significant of these changes is the trickle down of various Galaxy S20 camera features to the Korean giant's last generation flagships. For stills, this includes Single Take, an improved Night Mode (including Night Hyperlapse), and Custom Filter. The videographers among you, on the other hand, will likely appreciate the Pro Video mode as well as the ability to shoot in 4K/60fps via the front camera.

The Gallery has also received a bit of love, and the company has made it easier to share both your pictures and music with others.

  • Took them long enough.
  • I won't switch to any other browser except for Safari on iOS, I'm comfortable using Chrome on Android and not interested in any other browser which I think is inferior to Chrome.
  • They kinda late ain't they
  • I like the update BUT, now I keep getting a notification that tells me to
    "Select keyboard". I cannot figure out what it wants. I've selected, unselected an still keep getting the notification. What's up with that?
  • Still waiting for it on the Note 10 + on T-mo
  • Finally got the update and now the fingerprint scanner has a new unnecessary animation that makes it lag every time. I've even tried reregistering my prints. Seems less responsive too.
  • NOTE 10 UPDATE IS LIVE!
