A South Korean community moderator confirms the rollout is planned for the middle of June. The moderator says the One UI 2.1 will also bring the Zoom Animation app with all other compatible features.
Another community moderator confirmed that the Galaxy Note 9 will get the Pro Video Mode feature, won’t be available for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ due to hardware limitations.

The One UI 2.1 update for the Galaxy S9, S9+, and Galaxy Note 9 will not bring the Bixby Routines, confirmed South Korean Moderator. The reason is very obvious, these devices are old and Bixby Routines won’t support the configuration.

After confirming the One UI 2.1 update for the Galaxy Note 9, the company has now confirmed that the One UI 2.1 is also coming to the Galaxy S9 series. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will get the stable One UI 2.1 update in June 2020.

Samsung Korean community manager has now confirmed that the stable One UI 2.1 update is coming in June 2020. Although, you can get this early at the end of May.
The community manager said:
“Note9 OneUI 2.1 SW is expected to be released in June. This is because we are doing our best, but we need physical time to apply OneUI2.1 to Note9. As many members and others have said, if you wait with a little time, we will prepare well and try to deliver it as soon as possible.”

Today, the Samsung Korean community moderator said the One UI 2.1 update for the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 series is currently under development. He also adds, “along with Korea, the One UI 2.1 update is under development for the US and European users.
Here’s the translated response from the manager:
“I have to share the status quo with various speculative comments so I don’t think there will be unnecessary feelings of customers. Note9 / S9 series OneUI2.1 support is being reviewed in Korea as well as the Americas / Europe and is under development.
Currently, I am preparing really hard within the maximum working hours set by the country. You will be able to catch the Test build soon, so I hope you can wait a little longer.”
This is getting very confusing for the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 users, because of moderators and support team manager in different countries are giving opposing statements.
Until now, you can’t say the Galaxy Note 9 and S9 series will get the One UI 2.1 update or not.
