EUC6 testing build has been captured from korea

Now this could mean one of two things, either

1. They are preparing for OneUI 3.5 but i think its unlikely, we are still a bit far away from august (which is usually when one ui x.5 comes out).

2. This could very well be the One UI 3.1 part 2 update, its a little unusual they are gonna jump from D to E because of it but im not complaining because this means its another feature update which should include missing features from DUB5 like director's view, night mode in portrait, maybe the adaptive refresh rate mode (like the one in the S21/S21+), google discover feed, new booting screen, natural and bright options in selfie mode, improved bokeh in portrait mode like the one on the S21 series. And smoother UI experience, etc..

New update DUC7 now rolling out for DBT

The update is over 500mb which is rather interesting, it states that there are improvements in the camera, maybe this is One UI 3.1 part 2, i will install it and see if there is anything different.

Bootloader has also been updated to U7, which means downgrade won't be possible.

What i noticed till now:

•Night Portrait has been added at 1x portrait.

•New Portrait effects have been added.

•Ability to choose between Auto and Max exposure time in Night Mode.

•Ultrawide angle camera in Pro Mode

Sweet, some nice improvements there, hopefully hits the N20U soon

Interested to see what the new Night portrait and additional night exposure times come out like

Yep, will have to try them out today, its great samsung keeps updating their phones with new features tbh, Not many manufacturers do this as much as samsung does nowadays.

Agreed, I moved away to the Huawei P30 a year or so ago after being with Samsung for many years and instantly noticed the loss of care, features and quality, I hated that phone with a passion, felt like some low/mid range thing after my S9 I sold before it

Never again :D

Just tried night portrait, Its really good. I took some shots with night portrait and without it, will see if i can take some demo shots showing the difference to post here.
I tried it in a dark room because its not night yet here though.

Its also available in the portrait mode in selfie camera btw!

Oh btw, is Anything different in the note 20 update that you can see? Since it was 1gb, nearly double the size of the s20 update.

Not that I've noticed, was "Glitch" already a filter for portrait video mode?

Maybe coincidence, but usually once I take it off the charger at 100% it pretty much instantly drops to 99% and soon after 98, 97, 96, then seems to slow down, I had been using it for a fair time and it was still on 99%, SOT doesn't seem much different so far though, will see after a full discharge

    Samsung released today a new firmware-update for the S20Ultra that fixes the "Green screen"-bug

    Update is available OTA only, and not yet available via SmartSwitch, Frya and/or SamFirm.

    However: we did manage to get the UPDATE.ZIP from ATCT -> ATD3 (Thanks to Ab from SamMobile)

    Note: this update is for Multi-CSC OXM only, and ONLY for devices which are on ATCT-build now! Update via "SD-card method" is possible (so for the more experienced users)

    ATCT -> ATD3

    Rename BIN-file to UPDATE.ZIP

    1145LT: Update is now available via SmartSwitch too
