Samsung is rolling out the latest version of its One UI software for Galaxy S20 devices. The One UI 2.5 update adds several Note 20 features to the S20 range, including Pro Video mode, Wireless DeX and advanced note-taking features through Samsung Notes.
Pro Video mode supports 8K video recording at 24 FPS and 21: 9 cinematic aspect ratio. It also allows you to control your S20’s microphone direction for sharper sounds. Samsung says that products from its Galaxy Buds series can stand as lavaliere microphones after a quick trip through the Pro Video settings.
Wireless DeX is an odd idea that gives DeX a desktop environment for your smart TV. It’s easy to set up and can help professionals or teachers share photos and videos on the go. And because Wireless DeX turns your smartphone into a virtual trackpad, you don’t have to worry about throwing yourself around a keyboard and mouse.
Fans of the Samsung Notes app can enjoy several transfers from the Note 20, including audio bookmarks, PDF writing tools and automatic device sync across devices. These new features center around S Pen functionality, so that they work best with a pen.
The One UI 2.5 update includes some small improvements that are easy to shine over, such as Wi-Fi password sharing between Samsung devices and a recently modernized reminder app. Samsung says that the latest update is rolling out now, but it may take some time to reach your S20 device. The update will eventually find its way to the S10, Note10 and Samsung’s foldable devices.
