We've already seen Samsung roll out its One UI 2.1 update to devices like the Galaxy S10 and Note 10, and now another former Samsung flagship is getting the update.
The Galaxy Note 9 has begun receiving its own update to One UI 2.1. The folks at SamMobile have spotted the update rolling out in Germany as version N960FXXU5ETF5 and weighing in at a whopping 1.2GB in size.
There's no word yet on when or where else in the world we'll see this update starting hitting Note 9s. Now that it's begun going out in Germany, though, we could see more rollouts begin in the coming weeks.
As for what's included, the update doesn't bring every new feature of One UI 2.1 but it does have some new goodies for Note 9 owners to check out. Quick Share is like Samsung's version of Apple's AirDrop, making it easy for nearby Samsung users to beam a file to your device, as well as the Music Share feature that enables you to extend your Bluetooth audio connection with another device.
The Camera app is getting new features with this update, too. Single Take captures a photo with multiple lenses and modes and then uses AI to recommend the best one to you. Pro Video is a new mode that'll let you do things like change the ISO, shutter speed, and exposure level while recording video, and the ability to make a custom filter based on one of your photos is in the update as well.
Lastly, this update includes the June 2020 Android security patches.
The Galaxy Note 9 is coming up on its second birthday, and so it's good to see Samsung continue to support this device not only with security patches but with new feature updates.
