T-Mobile Galaxy Note 10+ 5G receiving One UI 2.5 update, Galaxy S9 gets security update


After finishing last week with some new Galaxy S20 series updates, T-Mobile is starting this week with some more Samsung updates.

First up, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G appears to be getting its One UI 2.5 update. The update is version N976USQU3CTI6 and it comes in at a whopping 1150.72MB. T-Mobile hasn’t updated its Note 10+ 5G with a changelog, but owners on Reddit say the update includes One UI 2.5 plus the September 1, 2020 security patches.


The update to One UI 2.5 brings with it a few new features. There are Pro Video features like support for recording 8K video at 24fps, video capture at a 21:9 aspect ratio, and the ability to control the phone’s microphone direction when recording video.

The Samsung Notes app gets a new Audio Bookmark feature with One UI 2.5 that enables it to sync your written notes with audio recordings, and Samsung DeX allows you to connect your phone to a smart TV wirelessly. The update enables you to easily share a Wi-Fi password with other Galaxy devices near you, too.

Also being updated are T-Mobile’s Galaxy S9 and S9+. These updates are versions G960USQS8ETH6 and G965USQS8ETH6, respectively, and they include the September 2020 security patches.

If you’ve got a T-Mobile Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, Galaxy S9, or S9+, you can manually check for your update by launching the Settings app and tapping on “Software update” followed by “Download updates manually”.


Thanks Chuck, Debjit, Brian, and Info Assistant!

        Same here and no word from tmobile

        • My reasons for keeping a Samsung phone are slowly eroding away. Updates use to be fast and quick and now it seems updates are non-existent even though Samsung just pledged to give all “hero” devices three major system updates starting with the S10 series. So we should be getting Android 11 sometime in 2021 and 12 the following year. Before we would have only gotten Android 11 and we were done as our phone came with Android 9, which is BS as Android 10 came out a few months later.

          And my other reason is Samsung pay which I use to use religiously is no longer accepted anywhere. Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Publix now all actively BLOCK Samsung pay. It’s crazy as during a pandemic I would think you would want people touching as little as possible?! I guess greed outweighs customer safety.

          And I purposely didn’t go with the 5G model as it has issues, in most cases isn’t as fast as 4G LTE and LTE is fast enough. I’m able to get over 215Mbps in some tower locations down and 60Mbps up! That is faster than most people’s home internet so why is 5g necessary right now when you need me equipment and more battery consumption with a less tested protocol? No thanks I’ll wait for 5G to mature before I buy into that party.

        • I forgot to mention I’m experiencing a huge bug that says “optimizing wifi calling” every few minutes?! It’s driving me insane and there is no way to disable the notification!
