One UI 2

Samsung has launched the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus with One UI 1.5, which is arguably the most refined One UI release yet. The company is expected to pair the upcoming Android rollout with another One UI bump. One UI 2 will pack Android 10’s best features, such as system-wide night mode, improved permission, and more, alongside Samsung’s software wizardry.

The Galaxy S11 might score One UI 2 but the likes of Galaxy S10 and Note 10 may be kept to One UI 2 only.
