Samsung has started rolling out the One UI 2.1 for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. In addition to the June security patch, there are also new features that are rolling out with this update.

Last week Samsung rolled out One UI 2.1 update to the Galaxy Note 9 and now Samsung is rolling out to Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. With firmware version G96xNKSU3ETF4, Samsung is currently rolling out first in South Korea and Germany.

As SamMobile reported this will be the last major update for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. The update is rolling out in batch wise and do note that it might take few days to get the update on your device.

Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus One UI 2.1 Features:

The features include new sharing options. There’s Quick Share, a one-tap solution for sharing files and media between Galaxy devices (similar to Apple’s AirDrop), along with Music Share, which allows you to share your phone’s Bluetooth audio connection with other devices (allowing your friends, for example, to play music from their phone on a Bluetooth speaker connected to your Galaxy smartphone).

The new functions that land on S9 and S9 Plus include some adjustments for the camera app. The new “Single Take” function creates short films or series of photos over 10 seconds. With the “My Filter” option, the style and color of selected photos should be replicated and saved as a separate filter option.

In addition, Samsung has now made a pro mode available again for videos after the deletion in the last update – this brings back options such as controlling the shutter speed.

The One UI 2.1 update also adds a new AR Zone app that puts all augmented reality features, such as AR Emoji and AR Doodle, in one place. AR Emoji also gets enhanced facial recognition and new manual editing tools.

Samsung Keyboard has been updated with a multilingual translation feature and text undo/redo shortcuts, and the Gallery app gets new quick crop functionality and can now group similar images together.
