Galaxy A51 5G One UI 5.1 Features Update

One UI 5.1 takes your phone to the next level with new Gallery features as well as productivity and personalization enhancements.

  • Camera and Gallery

      You can now search your Gallery for more than one person or subject at the same time. You can even search for people without tagging their names just by tapping their faces.
    • Enhanced image remastering
      Remastering does more to make your pictures look great by removing shadows and reflections. You can also remaster GIFs for better resolution and clarity. Preview has also been improved to make it easier to compare the original picture with the remaster.
    • Create a shared family album
      It’s easier than ever to share pictures with your family. Gallery will recommend pictures to add to your shared family album by recognizing the faces of family members you select. You get 5 GB of storage for each family member (up to 6 people).
    • 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.

      You can now minimize or maximize an app window without going to the options menu. Just drag one of the corners.

      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
