Samsung first introduced the One UI 2.5 update to the unlocked variants of the Galaxy Note 9 and S9 one month ago. The company is now introducing the same update to carrier-locked variants of the smartphones in the United States and other markets that are in the same situation.
T-Mobile’s One UI 2.5 and a fresh security patch are available for the Galaxy S9 and Note 9.
The Galaxy S9, S9+, and the Note 9 on T-Mobile in the United States started receiving the One UI 2.5 update and the October 2020 safety patch.
The new UI update bears the numbers G960USQU8FTJ3, G965USQU8FTJ3, and N960USQU5FTJ3, for the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note 9, accordingly.
If you use either of those devices on T-Mobile, you can check for the new update by tapping the Download and install option inside Settings -> Software update menu. That is likely the final big software update for the S9 lineup.
The official changelog is available on T-Mobile’s official website, and it only mentions the new security patch, and One UI 2.5, with extra updates and improvements.
Still, the great news is that One UI 2.5 brings various new features, like Wireless DeX, and a refined keyboard with built-in YouTube search plus a split layout to the phones.
Also, the new update features adjustable recording duration for the Single Take mode of the camera app.
Video recording resolution can be chosen from the Pro Mode, and the Messages app can now send SOS messages once every thirty seconds.
Make sure that you get the new update as soon as possible to benefit from all its perks, but especially to get the latest security update, which is essential to your smartphone’s wellbeing and your data’s safety.
