Whoa, Nelly, Google just announced that Android will carry version numbers from now on, and the latest, 10th installment may have just leaked for the world's most popular Android phones, courtesy of an obscure Portuguese YouTuber.
OneUI 2.0 version that is promised to arrive with Android 10 to its Galaxy S10, Note 10 and lesser phones. Google is just about to release the final Android 10 image to manufacturers so they can start painting their overlays on top of it, and push out the update, so Samsung may be tinkering with a preview version here.Yes, we are talking about Samsung's
Judging from the minimal changes in the looks of OneUI shown in the video above, we'd hesitate to call this 2.0, more like a very early developer build that tries to incorporate all the obligatory Android 10 features such as the new gesture navigation paradigm.
Samsung has gestures, too, but they have to be downloaded as a separate app from the Play Store, called One Hand Operation+, and then applied to your Galaxy. With Android 10, however, the standard swipe up/left/right/hold gestures are built in on system level which would hopefully result in a much smoother performance.
Some of the new Note 10 OneUI features like the Link to Windows and Devices toggles in the notification bar can be seen as well, suggesting they might trickle down to the Galaxy S line with the update.
This early developer build may be far from the finished thing but it is already showing that Samsung will faithfully incorporate all major Android 10 features into OneUI 2.0, all the while leaving it graphically intact - just what the doctor ordered for the millions of Galaxy owners.
