    • Revamped info display
      When you swipe up while viewing a picture or video in your Gallery, you can see when and where the picture was taken, which device took the picture, where the picture is stored, and more. Now with a simpler layout.
  • Multitasking
    • Easily minimize or switch to full screen
      You can now minimize or maximize an app window without going to the options menu. Just drag one of the corners.

  • Modes and Routines
    • Change wallpapers based on your mode
      Set a different wallpaper based on your current activity. Choose one wallpaper for work, one for exercising, and more.

    • Quick access to useful information
      Check severe weather alerts, daily weather summaries, and sunrise/sunset times at the top of the Weather app. The temperature graph now uses colors to show how the temperature changes throughout the day.
    • Hourly precipitation graph
      An hourly graph now shows how much precipitation has fallen at different times of the day.
    • Summary on Weather widget
      A brief summary of the current weather conditions now appears on the weather widget to let you know if it’s sunny, cloudy, raining, or snowing.
  • Samsung Internet
    • Continue browsing on another device
      If you’re browsing the web on one Galaxy phone or tablet and later open the Internet app on another Galaxy device signed in to the same Samsung account, a button will appear that lets you open the last webpage you were viewing on the other device.
    • Improved search
      Your searches now include the names of bookmark folders and tab groups. Improved search logic lets you find what you’re looking for even if something isn’t spelled correctly.
  • Additional changes
    • Check the battery level of your devices
      The new Battery widget lets you check the battery level of your devices, right from the Home screen. You can see how much battery is left on your phone, Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Watch, and other supported devices.
    • Settings suggestions
      While signed in to your Samsung account, suggestions will appear at the top of the Settings screen to help you share, connect, and enhance your experience across your Galaxy devices.
    • Choose where to save screenshots and screen recordings
      You can now change the folder where screenshots and screen recordings are saved.

If you are the owner of the smartphone in question, you can now benefit from all the new features implemented by the company in the latest version of the proprietary One UI 5.1 interface. To check for the presence of the update, simply go to Settings -> Software Update -> Download and Install.

As mentioned, Galaxy A51 5G comes to the end of the manufacturer’s software support; the device was launched on the market in 2020 equipped with Android 10, receiving the latest currently available version of the robot at the end of 2022.
