List of Samsung Phones Getting One UI 2.1 Update Based on Android 10

The update may bring more extended access to Screen Zoom

Samsung just launched their 2020 flagship S series models, the Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+ and  S20 Ultra. All of them are running on Android 10 with One UI 2.1 on top. As of now only, these three devices have One UI 2.1 running on them but we have heard the news from Samsung about older models also receiving the new update soon. This does not mean that only the S10 and Note 10 devices will receive the update, the S9 series and the Note 9 series phones will also receive the OneUI 2.1 update.

One UI 2.1 Update Samsung Phones List

  • Galaxy S20
  • Galaxy S20+
  • Galaxy S20 Ultra
  • Galaxy Z Flip
  • Galax S10
  • Galaxy S10+
  • Galaxy S10e
  • Galaxy S10 Lite
  • Galaxy Note 10
  • Galaxy Note 10+
  • Galaxy Note 10 Lite
  • Galaxy Note 9
  • Galaxy S9
  • Galaxy S9+

Note: The above list includes both confirmed and unconfirmed devices, so take it with a pinch of salt. Please wait for the official announcement.

This news came in from a Samsung community moderator via the South Korean portal, so this is confirmed for sure. Now we don’t know for sure as to when we will see the older Samsung flagships receiving the One UI 2.1 update but it will be in order. Firstly we will see the last year’s flagships Samsung S10 and Note 10 devices receiving the update, Tech leaker Max Weinbach also claims via Twitter. Following them would be the older S9 and Note 9 series. This is kind of expected though, considering the age of the S9 and Note 9 devices over the S10 and Note 10 devices. However, one thing is sure though, and that is the update on the S9 and Note 9 devices won’t be an early one. It will probably take a long time considering how long it took for Samsung to roll out One UI 2.0 update for the S9 and Note 9 devices. It was only a couple of weeks ago that the update was pushed out by Samsung.

What’s new with One UI 2.1?

Now with the One UI 2.1, we see a new setting option of switching up to a 120Hz from the normal 60Hz rate. However, we won’t see this change in the S10 or the S9 series devices as this feature is limited by actual screen hardware. The higher refresh rate is not something that can be pushed out via an OTA update. Besides this though, the S9, S10, Note 9 and Note 10 devices will receive the One UI 2.1 with the new screen zoom and Samsung Quick share feature.

Conclusion

As of now, not even a single S10 device has received the update. But it won’t be long until Samsung pushes out the new update for their one-year-old flagships. Whatever may be the case, S9 and Note 9 users will probably have to wait a couple of weeks before this new update rolls out. Going out Samsung’s track record, this will be a slow rollout.
