Quick panel

New button layout

The quick panel has a new layout that makes it easier to access the features you use most. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth now have their own dedicated buttons at the top of the screen, while visual features like Dark mode and Eye comfort shield have been moved to the bottom. Other quick settings buttons appear in a customisable area in the middle.

Instantly access the full quick panel

By default, a compact quick panel with notifications appears when you swipe down from the top of the screen. Swiping down again hides notifications and shows the expanded quick panel. If you turn on Quick settings instant access, you can view the expanded quick panel by swiping just once from the right side of the top of the screen. Swiping down from the left side shows notifications.

Quickly access brightness control

The brightness control bar now appears by default in the compact quick panel when you swipe down once from the top of the screen for quicker and easier brightness adjustments.

Improved album art display

While playing music or videos, album art will cover the entire media controller in the notification panel if the app playing the music or video provides album art.

Enhanced layout for notifications

Each notification now appears as a separate card, making it easier to recognise individual notifications. Notification icons now look the same as the app icons that appear on your Home and Apps screens, making it easier to recognise which app sent the notification.

Sort notifications by time

You can now change your notification settings to sort by time instead of priority so your newest notifications are always on top.

App icon labels are now limited to a single line for a cleaner and simpler look. “Galaxy” and “Samsung” have been removed from some app names to make them shorter and easier to scan.

Start dragging app icons or widgets on your Home screen with one hand, then use your other hand to navigate to the screen where you want to drop them.

Typeface

New default font

One UI 6 has a new default font with a more stylish and modern feel. You’ll see the new font if the default font is selected in Settings. If you’re using a different font, you’ll still see that font after upgrading to One UI 6.

Multitasking

Instead of minimising pop-up windows when you go to the Recents screen, pop-ups will now remain open after you leave the Recents screen so you can continue what you were working on.

The new Samsung DeX lets you switch between DeX mode and tablet mode with the same Home screen layout. All of your usual apps, widgets and icons are available in DeX. You can also use DeX in both landscape and portrait orientations if Auto rotate is turned on for your tablet.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is one of the most appreciated smartphones in terms of camera hardware and software; however, after using the device for a couple of months now, users are facing several issues with the camera software. Now, the good news is that the company will soon release a bug fix update in the next few weeks.

The Galaxy S24 ultra-camera fix is near

Earlier in April, it was expected that the company would provide the camera fix update with the April 2024 update, but later a popular tipster, Ice Universe, claimed that the update was shifted to June. Now that it has been reclaimed, it will be available with the One UI 6.1.1, which is on the way to arrive next month. The tipster has shared a screenshot of the new firmware for the Ultra variant as S928BXXU2AXEB.

Several users have faced different issues related to camera software, such as faulty white balance, the camera struggling to accurately render followers, and the telephoto image also creating movement, which lacks the quality of the photos. On the other side, some users also experience overexposure issues and an abnormal red color. So it is expected that the Korean giant will fix these issues in the next few days.

However, there is no confirmation available about the exact date of availability of the update; it is expected that the update will be available before the release of the Galaxy Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 smartphones. For your information, the sixth generation foldable will be introduced at the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event, which is expected to be organized on July 10.
