Samsung has started distributing the One UI 2.5 personalization to Galaxy S9, S9 + and A51 phones. The update should be the last major feature addition to S9 devices, originally launched in 2018. With version identification G96xFXXUCFTJ2, the new system for the old line tops is already being made available for models in Germany and highlights the Dex mode without thread.
In August, Samsung added its top-of-the-line two years ago to the list of devices that would receive customization, contrary to expectations.
The One UI 2.5 customization debuted with the Galaxy Note 20 line in the second half of 2020 and brought different news, according to the specifications of the compatible models. On the Galaxy S9 and S9 +, the update allows you to use the DeX wireless mirroring system on compatible TVs, turning the phone’s screen into a touchpad like notebook computers.
The phones also received an improved Samsung keyboard, with the option of separating the keys into two blocks when typing in landscape (horizontal) mode and a search feature on YouTube.
It is here (DBT), the last feature update… from r/GalaxyS9
The camera application may not have received as much news as in the models of the Galaxy S20 line, but even so it offers more controls for resolution of videos recorded in Pro mode and duration in Single Take mode (which takes photos during video recording).
Finally, the SMS application can be configured to send SOS messages asking for help to a contact every 30 minutes for a period of 24 hours.
There is no forecast for the distribution of One UI 2.5 to devices sold in Brazil, which have just received the monthly security update with the October 2020 package. In addition, the model sold in Europe is equipped with the Exynos processor, while the Brazilian model has the Snapdragon 845, which can impact the development time and customization test.
Even without the prospect of new feature updates for the Galaxy S9 and S9 + after One UI 2.5, Samsung should continue to distribute security fixes for the models, even though they are not included in the three major update policy announced for the S10 line onwards .
A51 also enters the queue
The intermediate A51 has also started to receive the new customization, in this case for models sold in Russia. The update identified as A515FXXU4CTJ1 is being distributed for the SM-A515F model, 4G version similar to the one sold in Brazil.
In the case of the Galaxy A51, apart from the October 2020 security package, there is no further information on the news of One UI 2.5. And just like on the Galaxy S9, the distribution of the update can take weeks to reach all devices, depending on adjustments made to the model in different markets.
