A UI 2.5 marks the end of major updates for the Galaxy Note 9
As with other updates, it may be a few days before One UI 2.5 becomes available in your country. It is also worth mentioning that the One UI 2.5 is the last major update for the Galaxy Note 9, as the device did not make the cut in Samsung’s new policy of three generations of Android upgrades. However, security updates continue to roll out monthly for at least another year, followed by their frequency being reduced to once every three months.
