Samsung is killing it in the security updates department. It has been months that we have heard or came across a news report where Google has pushed the security updates faster than Samsung. The Korean OEM is very much adamant for its update policy. Moreover, the company has recently announced with the launch of the Galaxy Note 20 series that it will now provide three years of software updates for eligible Samsung Galaxy models. Not all the devices are eligible for this policy, but it is a welcome change. Samsung users, especially the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ users are more concerned whether their devices will pick up the One UI 2.5 update or not.
Now, since we are fast approaching the month of September, Android users are bound to get excited as Android 11 is going to launch somewhere in that month. One UI 2.5 is the company’s latest iteration of the custom UI, which many devices are waiting to get updated with. Though the One UI 2.5 does not bring any new changes to the devices, it improves on the existing features of One UI 2.1. The updates are based on Android 10.
