T-Mobile Galaxy Note 9 receiving One UI 2.1 update while Tab S6 gets Android 10


There are new updates now rolling out for the T-Mobile versions of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S6, and they’re both biggies.

First up, the Galaxy Note 9 is being updated to version N960USQU4ETF3 and owners are reporting that it includes Samsung’s One UI 2.1 upgrade.

T-Mobile says that this update also includes the June 2020 security patches.

    It’s not…look at the GalaxyNote 9 subreddit…

    Many problems with screen resolution being blown to smithereens if you had the phone set to WQHD+.

    SET your resolution to FHD+ BEFORE installing the update.

    You’ve been warned.

    I just updated my T-Mobile Note 9 to UI 2.1 after the update my screen resolution was way off and zoomed in on the reboot. I fixed it by changing the Screen Resolution under Display in settings from WQHD+ to FHD+ and hit apply. I did a reboot with the FHD+ selected and the phone rebooted correctly. If you are on WQHD+ you can select FHD+ hit apply, then go back to WQHD+ and hit apply on that and the device screen will work as normal. But remember when ever you reboot your device the resolution will be zoomed in again, you will have to deselect and reselect the WQHD+ in Screen Resolution under Display and apply the change to correct it each time.
