Samsung updates the Galaxy S10 Lite with One UI 2.1 and April 2020 patches
Shortly after the launch of the Galaxy S20 series earlier this year, we learned that the company was also planning on rolling out One UI 2.1 to older flagship devices. Towards the end of last month, the update finally hit the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 series, bringing some of Galaxy S20’s software features to the two devices. Now, according to a recent report from Sammobile, the company is rolling out the One UI 2.1 update to the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite.
The One UI 2.1 update (firmware version G770FXXU2BTD2) for the Galaxy S10 Lite is currently rolling out to users in Spain. The update includes a handful of features that made their debut with the Galaxy S20 series, along with the Android security patches for April 2020.
Following the update, Galaxy S10 Lite users will be able to enjoy improved AR Emoji with manual editing and enhanced facial expression recognition. The update also includes optimizations for the Gallery app, with the addition of a new Quick Crop feature that will allow users to easily cut images without entering the edit menu. Other One UI 2.1 additions include Quick Share, Music Share, and an updated Samsung Keyboard with multilingual translation, swipe-based text undo/redo, and an easier way to search for emoji/stickers.
Along with the aforementioned features, the One UI 2.1 update for the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite also includes a Pro video mode, however, it’s rather basic and doesn’t include advanced features like shutter speed control. As mentioned earlier, the update is currently only available to users in Spain, but it should roll out in more regions in the coming days. We expect Samsung to roll out a similar update for the Galaxy Note 10 Lite in the coming weeks.
