We reported earlier today that the Galaxy Note 9 One UI 2.1 update was one step closer to the exit. A moderator on Samsung’s official forums for South Korea confirmed that the update has now entered testing.
We came across the real 2.1 user interface firmware versions that Samsung is testing for the Galaxy Note 9 in Europe and South Korea. This should put an end to the concerns that users may have had about the fact that it was too good for the Galaxy Note 9 to receive One UI 2.1.
Galaxy Note 9 One UI 2.1 test firmware versions
Samsung is currently testing the firmware version N960NKSU3ETD1 and N960FXXU5ETD5 for the Galaxy Note 9 in South Korea and Europe respectively. These are the One UI 2.1 updates which Samsung confirmed development last week.
By paying attention to the firmware version number, you can easily understand that this is an important update. The Galaxy Note 9 is currently running on the firmware version N960FXXU5reTCA in Europe. The next update tested for the device is N960FXXU5ETD5.
Notice the change from alphabet D to E? When the alphabet moves up from a place, it is a signal that it is a major update. New versions of Android OS are always getting a new alphabet, as are major feature updates like the new One UI versions.
The appearance of these test firmware is a good sign that the Galaxy Note 9 One UI 2.1 update will be released in the near future. It also means that it won’t be long before the same treatment is also applied to the Galaxy S9. We are keeping a very close eye on this point and will let you know as soon as Samsung starts rolling out the firmware update to the public.
