The Galaxy S10 is still a mighty flagship even though the Galaxy S20 has superseded it, and so is the Galaxy Note 10. And both of Samsung’s 2019 flagship lineups also started receiving the One UI 2.1 update recently, bringing them a lot closer to the Galaxy S20 series in terms of software functionality. The One UI 2.1 update was initially released in just a handful of markets, but it has now started rolling out worldwide.
One UI 2.1 is chock full of new features
One UI 2.1 brings a lot of new features. Galaxy S20, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy Note 10 owners can now share files with each other with a single tap through Quick Share, and they can also share their Bluetooth audio connections through the Music Share feature. On the camera front, the update brings the ability to record 4K 60 fps selfie videos, a Night Hyperlapse mode for capturing timelapses of cars streaking by at night, an improved Night mode, and the new Single Take mode that captures a series of photos and video clips with just one tap of the shutter button.
The update also introduces a Pro mode for video recording, the ability to switch between front and rear cameras while a video is being recorded, and the option to create custom filters using your personal photos through the My Filters feature. The Gallery app has also been improved. The Gallery app’s Clean View option lets you group similar photos together, and the Quick Crop lets you crop images quickly by zooming in on them. Oh, and Good Lock users will find that the NavStar module works without any issues on One UI 2.1.
The One UI 2.1 update includes the April 2020 security patch and comes with firmware version G97xFXXU4CTC9 and N97xFXXS2BTA7 for the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 lineups respectively.
