One UI 5: Samsung Lists The Best Features Of The Update For Galaxy Smartphones

Samsung’s goal is obviously to put the user as much as possible at ease in using its devices; to do so, it has decided to grant even more customization options with the One UI 5, starting with communication.

The South Korean giant made One UI 5 official last week with many news for Galaxy phones. Now the company is citing the best feature that will come with this update with Android 13.

Lock Screen Customization

One UI 5 will introduce additional customization options in the lock screen that are native and won’t require Good Lock to be installed. Simply press an element to reveal customization choices (such as the clock). The customization options available are clock format, notification layout and even the option to use videos as wallpaper on the lock screen, all without requiring additional steps through other applications.

New Layout For Notification & Calls

One UI 5 also makes enhancements to notifications. The bigger icons make it easier to identify the apps or the sender of message notifications. And the call screen has also been enhanced, displaying the options to answer, decline, and send fast responses more clearly if you are currently busy.

New Bixby Text Call

Additionally, Samsung has introduced Bixby Text Call, which translates the call’s audio in real-time with just one tap and lets you type or use predetermined responses as a response. One UI 4.1.1 in South Korea already has this functionality available; it will follow in the US in early 2023. Unfortunately, there is no indication of availability in Brazil.

Enhanced Home Screen

The latest One UI 5 will also improve the One UI home screen, focusing on widgets, which can be grouped into smart formats only by dragging one over the other. Another improvement is the intelligent suggestion of applications, which will show which ones are useful to you at that time according to your usage patterns. Customization will also be improved in this version, with more color options in the wallpaper-based palette.

Copy Text From Photos

With One UI 5, smart text extraction will be available on Galaxy devices. To choose, copy, and search using the content of a picture, simply open it in the gallery and tap on a section of it that contains characters or numbers.

New Connectivity Menu

A new Connected Devices menu has been added to the Settings, where you can now control functions like Quick Share, Smart View, Samsung DeX, and the intelligent pairing of accessories like Galaxy Buds.

Privacy Feature In Gallery

Finally, One UI 5 will notify you if the image you are sharing contains any potentially sensitive data, such as a password or credit or debit card number, preventing information from leaking.

Other Informations

The Galaxy S22 series, which has been testing the system in beta form for a few months, will receive One UI 5 first. Other South Korean devices are anticipated to get the update in the upcoming months. The update is anticipated to arrive for the Galaxy S22, S22 Plus, and S22 Ultra later in October of this year.
