Michail, 10 October 2019

Two days ago we learned that Samsung is planning to release a OneUI 2.0 beta based on Android 10 for the Galaxy S10 series as early as today. South Korean users will still be first in line for the update but the launch date has been pushed back to mid-October according to a post from a Samsung representative in the official community forum. This likely means that the international rollout will also be pushed back.

The second phase of the OneUI 2.0 beta testing will start from October 21 to November 14. While there’s no confirmation as to which devices will be part of this release, rumors suggest the Note10 line should headline the list. As with past Samsung beta releases users will need to register through the Samsung Members app and register for beta testing.

Wrong. The Gmail app. dark mode is only available with Android 10. I own a Note 10 Plus 5G and can assure you there is no dark mode for the Gmail app.

The gesture navigation on One UI 2.0 is still cumbersome compared to the "stock" gesture navigations of other phones like Huawei, Pixel or Sony Xperia (in beta form)
