Samsung once again aims to consolidate its position of one of the top smartphone manufacturers on the market by pushing the One UI 5.0 update to more models. The update has started to roll out for the Galaxy S21 models, meaning the flagship of the South Korean giant for last year. Also, older models are targeted by the One UI 5.0 update, such as S20 and Note 20, as GSMArena reveals.

For the moment, only European units of the S21 series are receiving the update, but you know what they say that good things come to those who wait! Samsung will follow suit with other regions of the world as well. In just a few weeks, the rollout should be complete.

The old continent is also currently targeted for the One UI 5.0 update when it comes to smartphones from Samsung’s Galaxy S20 series that came out two years ago. This means that those owning either a Galaxy S20, a Galaxy S20+, or the Galaxy S20 Ultra should see the change on their handsets soon enough.

The October security patch is also included

Samsung is well-known for providing a lot of focus on the security area when it comes to its smartphones. Along with the rollout of the new One UI 5.0 update, the South Korean behemoth applies the same recipe. The October security patch is also included in the package, at least for smartphones from the Galaxy S20 and the Note 20 series.

The One UI 5.0 update brings a redesigned lock screen that allows the user to make more customizations. The update also allows Samsung owners to play a short video on their lock screen. Those are just two of the top features that One UI 5.0 brings!

In other words, make sure that you keep your smartphone connected to the internet if you own any of the models mentioned above!
