The launch of the successors to the Galaxy Note 10 series and the Galaxy Fold is around the corner. Earlier in the year, Samsung released the Galaxy S20 lineup of devices that bring 5G support and of course, better specs. The S20 series also brought an updated software experience which is Samsung One UI 2.1. As Samsung is moving towards its latest One UI skin called One UI 2.5 for its plenty of supported devices, check out the Samsung One UI 2.5 Update: List of Supported devices to receive it.
This latest skin over Android 10 brings a few improvements and enhancements over One UI 2.0 which was made available with the Android 10 update. And it seems Samsung isn’t slowing down on improving their Android skin. New reports suggest that the upcoming Galaxy Note 20 series will come with One UI 2.5 running the show.
Samsung has not yet confirmed or denied the reports nor has it released an updated roadmap for One UI 2.5. One UI 2.5 is going to be based on Android 10, we do expect to see it become available on all Samsung devices that support Android 10. Although, at the time of writing, this is pure speculation.
One major feature that will arrive via the update will be support for Android 10 gestures in third-party launchers.
