The South Korean tech firm Samsung undoubtedly holds the strongest and most appreciable User Interface in the tech world. The One UI of Samsung has got a total of 5 generations; in which the most recent one is One UI 5. For nearly every One UI generation, Samsung has provided an additional x.1 update and a larger screen dedicated x.1.1 with Android L update.
Simply, all One UI generations have a total of three variants; for example, the One UI 4 has One UI 4.0, One UI 4.1, and One UI 4.1.1, in which the One UI 4.0 is the base variant, the One UI 4.1 is an additional update, and the One UI 4.1.1 (Android L) is a larger-screen-dedicated update, which is only for the Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Tab lineups. As the x.1 update is an additional update, it will surely have some advancements over its x.0 version.
Today, we will find out which additional update is richer in terms of new offerings than its main update, among the One UI 4.1 and One UI 5.1. First, let us inform you that the One UI 4.1 was a successor to the One UI 4.0, and the One UI 5.1 is to the One UI 5.0.
