Samsung introduced several new features in their One UI 2.5 system, which is included in the recently launched Galaxy Note20 series. As it turns out, this latest update is currently making its way for the Galaxy S20 family as well – with those in select European countries already receiving the latest version on their devices.
According to a report by SamMobile, Samsung has started releasing firmware updates labeled as G981BXXU4BTH5, G986BXXU4BTH5 and G988BXXU4BTH5 for the standard Galaxy S20, the S20 Plus, and the S20 Ultra respectively. They added that all of the latest features of One UI 2.5 from the Note20 are now made available for the S20 series – save for those exclusively made for the former, of course.
The new features that are carried over include the ability to use Samsung DeX wirelessly, improvements and added customisation in the camera’s Single Take mode, support for Android 10 navigation gestures in third-party app launchers, among many others. The S20 series’ Pro Video mode is also upgraded, now enabling users to manually switch between the phone’s different mics for audio input – with the addition of using the Galaxy Buds Live as a remote mic.
As mentioned earlier, Samsung is in the process of rolling out the new update to various regions outside of Europe. However, it did not specify a time frame for when the One UI 2.5 will be available in certain countries. Additionally, the company also mentioned that this new firmware upgrade will “gradually” arrive to other flagship phones from the brand, including the Galaxy S10, Note 10, Galaxy Fold, and the Galaxy Z Flip.
