One UI 6 Compatibility & Features

Samsung One UI is a popular Android skin that has improved over time. The next version, One UI 6, is based on Android 14 and focus on making the UI smoother and more polished rather than adding new features. Here is a summary of what we know about One UI 6, including its features, and compatibility:

Samsung hasn’t officially launched the stable version of One UI 6 yet. However, based on Samsung’s past release patterns, we can make some educated guesses about the One UI 6 release date. Historically, Samsung has consistently introduced its new software in the fourth quarter (Q4) of the year. The specific month within Q4 can vary, typically falling between mid-October and early December. Given that more devices are getting the beta version, it’s highly probable that the final One UI 6 release will follow this pattern and arrive in Q4 of 2023, as anticipated.

One UI 6 Features

One UI 6 is bringing a host of new features on top of the standard Android 14 updates. Some of these include a fresh font and simplified icon labels. New widgets are also in the pipeline, such as a weather insights widget and a camera widget for quick access to user-preferred camera modes. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Enhanced Customization: You’ll have more control over the onscreen experience, allowing you to change fonts and adjust the general layout to suit your preferences.
  2. Quick Settings Revamp: The Quick Settings panel is getting a makeover, with notable changes like a dedicated row for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings. There are also additions to improve eye comfort and dark mode settings.
  3. Notification Panel Tweaks: The notification panel is receiving some adjustments, including the ability to view individual notifications as separate cards.
  4. Improved App Drawer: In the app drawer, you can now search for app-specific long-press functions, making it easier to access certain features.
  5. New Emoji Style: The Samsung keyboard will feature a fresh emoji style, adding a new dimension to your messaging and communication.
  6. App Enhancements: Expect improvements in various apps, such as the gallery app and its built-in photo editor, the camera app, the weather app, and more. These updates aim to enhance your overall user experience.
