Recently, Google announced that they are going to break the tradition of naming its Android OS after deserts. This tradition started way back with the Android 1.5 OS and till Android 9 Pie, we have got all the Android OS named after deserts. But with the release of the logo and the simple name for the Android Q which will be now called the Android 10, Google has put all the rumors to rest. Moreover, the clarification that Google gave is that the names of the OS after deserts, causes a lot of confusion in the global community and henceforth, the names will be simple.
But, in a recent turn of events, as we are closing in for the release of the latest Android Q or the Android 10, a leak has surfaced the internet showing Samsung Galaxy S10+ running on Android 10 with the One UI 2.0. There is a video of 11 minutes length that shows the Android 10 running on the Samsung Galaxy S10+ in its full glory with the latest version of the One UI 2.0 which is rumored to arrive with the Android 10 update. The video which is leaked is from a Portugues YouTuber, Dudu Rocha. You can check out the leaked video below;
What’s in the Video?
In the leaked video, the Portuguese YouTuber takes the viewers in a comparison between Samsung’s One UI 1.0 and the One UI 2.0. However, for comparison, he is running the One UI 2.0 on the Samsung Galaxy S10+ and the One UI 1.0 on the Samsung Galaxy S9+. But, it is still not sure whether the video is legitimate or not and the YouTuber is actually running the Android 10 on the Samsung Galaxy S10+ or not. As there is no official confirmation from Samsung, we will have to wait and watch the developments on this matter.
Moreover, you can see various new features in the Android 10 running on the Samsung Galaxy S10+ with One UI 2.0 on top. Below is the list of new features and enhancements that the video shows;
The first thing that the YouTuber shows off, is the new navigation gestures. These are the same navigation gestures that Google recently revealed for the Android 10. For those of you who are not aware of the new navigation gestures that Google is going to introduce with the Android 10 is that now you can swipe from either left or right to trigger the back button gestures. Moreover, the swipe up will take you to the home screen as you would normally do.
Personally, if you would ask me, I am pretty habitual now with the navigation gestures which is already there and do not understand the need to introduce such changes in the navigation gesture system. However, it is great to see that OEMs are now working in tandem to bring the same features for the users as rolled out by Google.
The second feature that the YouTuber, Dudu showed off in the video is the new quick settings. Now, you can see in the video that there are new tiles for the quick settings icons. This might be one of the aesthetic changes that the One UI 2.0 brings in. Moreover, this time the quick settings will take up the entire screen of your device and fill it up with the quick settings tiles. The adjustment is done by shifting the clock to the upper position and all the remaining space is taken up by the tiles. Again, if this video is legit and Samsung do add this feature of quick setting tiles taking up the whole screen with the new version of the One UI, I will be its biggest critic.
For a simple reason, Samsung brought the One UI for its devices to make their devices more easy to use with one hand. But, now with this new aesthetic change, the tile is spread all over the screen making it difficult to reach for the tiles positioned at the top and just putting to ashes the very existence of the One UI. We will have to wait and see whether this is actually implemented or not.
Next feature that the YouTuber shows off is the new security settings. The two new security features are “Local” and “Privacy“. These two sections will now include all the new security features that Samsung will be adding on with the Android 10 on its devices. However, these options were not explored by Dudu in the video, so we are unclear about these. But, it will allow the user to have more privacy control and permission control. These features are Android 10 specific and are not the exclusive features of Samsung devices.
Galaxy Note 10 Features
If you watch the video closely, you will notice that there are quite a few features that Samsung is going to bring to the Galaxy S10 from the Note 10 devices. For instance, in the quick settings menu, you can see the Note feature of Link to Windows on the S10 which is an exclusive feature between Microsoft and Samsung. Moreover, the native screen recorder is also been brought over from the Note 10 to the S10. If this is true, then it is a nice move to pass on some of the new features from the latest Samsung phones to the previous generation devices.
So, that is it what we could learn from the video and thanks to XDA developers for sharing this piece of information with us. Moreover, Xda Developers believe that this video is legit and shows off the real deal on the S10+. If this is true then, the One UI might have to go through some scrutiny as the quick settings tiles are already looking like a sore on the thumb. We will have to wait and see what plans Samsung has for Android 10 as well as for the One UI 2.0.
