One UI 2.1 brings new camera features to Galaxy S10+

Samsung did not specify when the software update will release for Note 10 and S10 owners, just that the rollout is starting from March.

The Galaxy S20 phones may be Samsung's new flagships, but since the company continues selling the S10 line alongside it, it keeps doing a stellar job at providing software updates: The Korean manufacturer is beginning to roll out a big update to last year's series, giving it a ton of One UI 2.1 features from the Galaxy S20, most notably in the photography department.

New features include the innovative Single Take mode and support for Samsung's new Quick Share feature. With Single Take, stay in the moment while you capture the moment using integrated AI technology. Yes, I know Samsung has said from the start that the Fold is scheduled to get Android 10 in April, but it still feels off.

Night Hyperlapse is also coming to the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 series, which are still some of the best phones you can get. The phone will look at data captured from all the phone's cameras and pick out some of the best photos of the subject, letting you take the best picture possible with a simple tap. Custom Filter lets you create your own filter with colours and styles you like from a favourite photo. The new firmware also enables 4K 60FPS video recording using the front-facing camera.

The Gallery app is also getting a new feature called Clean View. When viewing a photo in the gallery, you can zoom in on an image and press Quick Crop, located at the top left-hand corner, to crop photos to your desired size. Samsung is also bringing Pro Video to both phone series. Finally, the update will include the Music Share feature, which allows a friend to connect to the same speaker a user is connected to via Bluetooth even if they don't unlink their device. So far, the OTA is only rolling out in a few locations, among them the Netherlands and Germany, but it probably won't take too long until it reaches other regions.
