In the United States, updated ‘One UI 2.5’ is being rolled out to Galaxy S20 phones
One UI 2.5 Update released with new features – The second flagship line for 2020 – the Galaxy Note20 is being unveiled recently by Samsung – as part of One UI 2.5 with some exclusive features. A few of those features is being ported by the company to its older phones. The updated ‘One UI 2.5’ is being rolled out by Samsung to the Galaxy S20 trio with an expectation of more devices to join soon.
An enhanced Pro Video mode will be present in the native camera app in which cinematic 8K videos will be supported in a widescreen 21:9 aspect ratio. This enhanced Pro Video Mode, mentioned above, will be presented by the S20 owners, similar to the Note20.
The phone’s mic focus can also be picked for improved directional audio and the Galaxy Buds’ mic can be used as the source. Making a debut on the Galaxy S20 line is the Wireless Samsung DeX for pairing with compatible Smart TVs along with the option for the phone to be used as a multi-touch trackpad.
Also, for Wi-Fi credentials to be shared with nearby Galaxy devices quickly, away is added by One UI 2.5. The improved Samsung Notes app is featured with the neat Audio Bookmark where the user’s notes are synced with the audio recording, which is corresponding so that they can easily be skimmed through, later on.
A host of other features have been brought by the app, where handwritten notes that seem better suited for the S Pen-clad Note phones are involved. For gesture navigation, support has finally been added by the One UI 2.5 in third-party launchers on the Note20.
Why S20 won’t receive a similar treatment, there is no strong reason related to this, but this update needs to be tested, just to be sure. The rollout plan isn’t detailed by Samsung, except that it’s starting on 21st August 2020. If there’s anything to go by the previous record, the One UI 2.5 will be landing on European Galaxy S20 units, before it reaches the US and elsewhere.
