On February 2023, the Korean tech giant unveiled its newest One UI 5.1 skin along with the release of the Galaxy S23 Series. All three Galaxy S23 devices—the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra—are shipped with the One UI 5.1 skin built on top of Android 13. A number of intriguing new features and improvements were added to its Galaxy smartphones under the new skin.
The latest One UI 5.1 update is available not only for the latest Galaxy S23 Series but also for older Samsung Galaxy S, Z, Note, A, M, F models and Galaxy Tablets. Informatively, the One UI 5.1 is an updated version of the One UI 5.0 skin and is also based on Android version 13, like its main version (One UI 5.0).
It is admirable that the company didn’t let its users wait longer and started to provide the One UI 5.1 update to other eligible Galaxy devices within two weeks of its launch. For information, the first update was rolled out for the Galaxy S22 series on February 13th, 2023, and the list started to form with the addition of new Galaxy phones in it as time passing.
Before moving on to the list, let us inform you the update has brought a plate full of novelties with it, in which include some new widgets, more customization abilities, new connectivity, sharing, and gallery-related features, and some other essential services like Bixby Text Call (English) are included. We have already made separate dedicated articles for these novelties, so if you want to know them, you can check them out here.

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.

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 your family members. 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.
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.
Access your most used apps in split screen
When you start a split-screen view, the apps you use most often will be shown below your recently used apps to help you find the apps you need faster.
Improved multitasking in DeX
In split-screen view, you can now drag the divider in the center of the screen to resize both windows. You can also snap a window to one of the corners to make it fill a quarter of the screen.
Modes and Routines

More actions for routines
New actions let you control Quick Share and Touch sensitivity, change your ringtone, and change your font style.

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.
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.
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.
Let Bixby take your calls
