In the official post, Samsung has declared that the Galaxy S9, S9+ & Galaxy Note 9 smartphones will get the latest One UI 2.5 update. The date wasn’t mentioned by the company, but it is now confirmed that anytime soon Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+ & Galaxy Note 9 will get the One UI 2.5. Now, the Samsung representative at South Korea has cleared that the company has started to work on the next firmware. When the customers asked about the release date, then he said the work is in progress and the company is reviewing which functions should launch on these old flagship models.
Yes, it may be true that both Galaxy S9 & Note 9 might miss some of the key features of One UI 2.5, which we have seen on Galaxy Note 20 & Galaxy S20 smartphones. In the clarification representative said, some features might not support these old devices and in the final review, Samsung will decide which function should be released. It had also happened with One UI 2.1 version, where the company holds some features due to hardware limitations and some other reasons. Below you can see the part of a conversation and the reply from the Samsung rep.
I am in charge of Galaxy Note SW. Currently, it is in the review phase for the application of One UI 2.5 to the 9 series. Following the instructions from the management to prepare customers to experience various SW, we are reviewing the functions that can be installed and re-identified the current memory situation. Thank you.
There is no official date for the release of One UI 2.5 for the 2018’s flagship phones. The Galaxy S10 series & Galaxy Note 10 series devices have still in the waiting line to get the upcoming version. It is true that Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+ & Note 9 will get One UI 2.5, after when Galaxy S10 & Note 10 receives it, and September could be the month when both devices might get it.
