The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series has started receiving the One UI 4.1 update in the US. As of now, the update is rolling out to the carrier-locked variants of the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+. The unlocked variants of the duo should also join the party shortly. The update should also soon reach the Galaxy Note 10 5G. International versions of these phones have already picked up the new One UI version.
The One UI 4.1 update for the carrier-locked Galaxy Note 10 series in the US is rolling out with firmware version N97xUSQU7HVC6. According to SamMobile, who first reported this rollout, the update comes complete with the March 2022 Android security patch. Users on all major wireless networks should be able to download this update within a few days.
The March SMR (security maintenance release) brings fixes for more than 50 vulnerabilities. These include a few critical ones, which could cause severe damage if exploited in the wild.
However, it’s not the new security patch that we are more excited about. The Galaxy Note 10 series is picking up One UI 4.1, which is the latest iteration of Samsung’s custom Android software. The new One UI version brings a host of new features and enhancements to eligible Galaxy smartphones and tablets.
Built on Android 12, One UI 4.1 includes the ability to add portrait effects to any image containing a person. Your phone will also now automatically optimize photos to crop out unnecessary portions before sharing with others. Converting still images to rime-lapse videos, motion photos to still images, and enhanced Object Eraser are the other new features in the Gallery app.
The Samsung Keyboard now comes with Grammarly integration to help you correct your grammatical errors. Samsung Health is getting several improvements as well. The Smart Widgets feature lets you group multiple home screen widgets to free up more space.
Improved Color Palette, new personalization options, Quick Share, Smart Switch, customizable RAM Plus, improved AR Emoji, and Google Duo Live Sharing are also among the notable new features of One UI 4.1.
