After what seems to be an eternity, Samsung Malaysia is finally rolling out the OneUI 2.5 software update for Galaxy Note10+ devices in the country. The update comes with some new features but more importantly, it also introduces some improved functionality over the previous version of OneUI.
For starters, OneUI 2.5 brings Wireless DeX connection support, enabling the Note10+ to connect directly to a TV that supports Wi-Fi Direct or compatible with Miracast. However, a small disclaimer in the notes recommend that this feature be used with Samsung Smart TVs that launched after 2019.
Moving down the list, OneUI 2.5 also brings improvements to the Wi-Fi of the Note10+. Now when you search and attempt to connect to Wi-Fi points, the phone will now inform the quality of the Wi-Fi router as Very Fast, Fast, Normal, or slow. Of course, the feature can be switched off; simply search for the “Network Quality Information Display” settings, tap on it, and you’re done.

The default keyboard of the Note10+ has also been given a bump up, chief among which being a new feature that allows users to search YouTube. Without having to switch over to the app. Moreover, OneUI 2.5 also introduces the split keyboard support whenever you enter landscape mode.
An update for the Note10+’s camera is also available with the OneUI 2.5 update. Specifically, it enhances the Pro Video mode of the phone, but it will also undoubtedly provide additional refinement to the mode’s existing features, including Single Take.
Messages is also being improved with OneUI 2.5. One such update is the ability for users to send SOS location-sharing messages on a 30-minute interval, for a period of 24 hours.
The size of the update is approximately 1.15GB in size and is currently being rolled out as an OTA. If you own a Galaxy Note10+ but have yet to receive it, do be patient. You’ll eventually get it.
Thanks for the tip, Seow Tze Chian!
