Optus Australia Samsung Galaxy Note 10 One UI 2.1 update hits devices

Samsung has taken one of the best decisions when they decided to ditch the buggy and cartoonish, TouchWiz UI and replace it with the One UI. It was launched alongside Android 9 Pie and it was very well received by its users.

After the launch of Android 10, Samsung brought in the next version of its custom skin, the One UI 2.0, that provided the users with some subtle changes paired with some added features for the Samsung devices.


And it seemed like Samsung wanted to continue with the provision of new and extra features with some tweaks, and for that reason, the company released a bumped version of the One UI, in the form of One UI 2.1.

The One UI 2.1 is meant for Samsung Galaxy phones that are already running on Android 10. To give you an overview, One UI 2.1 packs in truck-load of features like AR Emoji, Pro video, 4K 60fps out of the front camera, Quick Share, Music Share, etc.

A bunch of phones from Samsung has already picked up this new One UI 2.1 update and now as per the latest reports, Optus, which is the second-largest telecom company in Australia, has released the One UI 2.1 update for its Galaxy Note 10 variant.
