One UI 6.0

Samsung One UI 6 update brings a more intuitive storage calculation method

Published

on


Android 14-based One UI 6.0 skin from Samsung will be available for Galaxy smartphones that meet the requirements in the upcoming weeks. Users of Galaxy devices have recently received a notification from the firm about a big update. The internal storage space is shown differently in the My Files app, all crediting One UI 6.0. Samsung sent out a notification to Galaxy users via the Members app. They are notified in the notification that the My Files program has been upgraded with One UI 6.0.

What’s the new calculation?

The change is that the binary notation is changed to a base 10 notation (1GB = 1,000*1,000*1,000*1,000 bytes) and displays the actual storage in base 10. One UI will now compute one gigabyte (1,001 x 1,000 x 1,000 bytes). 1GB (Gibibyte) = 1,024 × 1,024 x 1,024 bytes was the formula employed by Samsung’s software prior to One UI 6. All Galaxy smartphones running One UI 6 and Android 14 will accurately reflect the storage capacity used by system files; all credit goes to this modification in the storage size calculation algorithm. When it was checked on the Galaxy S23 Ultra 256GB model, the One UI indicated that system files take up 17.56GB of space, for instance.

All this started a couple of months ago when a report claiming that the One UI software takes up more than 30GB of device space sparked a debate. It was later refuted, though, by demonstrating how Samsung’s My Files app’s system file groupings were combined with the distinction between binary and Base 10 computation to display system size. After this, a lot of customers were perplexed and believed that Samsung’s One UI software required twice as much storage as other brands.

One UI 6.0 (Android 14) Official Rollout Schedule & Timeline

Changes in the My Files application:

In addition, the alert mentions that the capacity display in the base-10-notation My Files application may differ from that of programs using binary notation. Beginning with One UI 6.0, the Base 10 technique will now be utilized by the My Files app to determine file size and storage space. The values from One UI 6.0 and Samsung My Files app may not match those from other programs, though, as some may calculate file size and storage capacity using the binary system.

Samsung One UI 6.1.1 to Improve Portrait Photography with New Feature

Samsung is supposed to introduce Android 14-based Onu UI 6.1.1 on the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 at the next Galaxy Unpacked event on July 10th. This new update will bring a feature to improve portrait photos. 

It has already been reported that, for the first time, Samsung is looking forward to making the One UI X.1.1 iteration compatible with S-series devices such as the Galaxy S24. According to a well-known tipster, IceUniverse, it is being speculated that the upcoming One UI 6.1.1 update will bring a feature that permits you to use AI paint on portrait images captured by you to apply various styles. 

However, it’s not clear yet exactly how this new feature will function, but it appears that users can probably draw using the S-pen on portrait images captured on the phone, and the device will change the style of portrait images based on the drawing. If the reports are to be believed, this feature will use AI, which means it will only be available on high-end Galaxy phones and tablets. Potentially, it could be limited to devices with an S Pen. 

It can also be possible that this feature will be released to devices that are eligible to get the One UI 6.1.1 update and already have Galaxy AI features. Previously, it was reported that One UI 6.1.1 will also bring a feature to permit users to convert rough sketches into proper-looking drawings and images in Samsung Notes. This feature will also be limited to devices with the S-pen, for instance, the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Galaxy Tab S9, and Galaxy Z Fold 5.

One UI 6.1.1

Samsung Galaxy S24, S24+, and S24 Ultra Could Also get One UI 6.1.1 update after the Galaxy Unpacked

Samsung started gearing up for its next update, One UI 6.1.1 based on Android 14. The giant usually releases its One UI *.1.1 iteration for its bigger-screen devices, but it could also include the Galaxy S24 device this time. 

It was already reported that Samsung had begun the One UI 6.1.1 internal testing for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5. It has also started updating its applications with support for One UI 6.1.1. Before the official announcement, leaks and rumors are blowing in the market. The new report suggests that Samsung could offer a One UI 6.1.1 update to the recently launched Galaxy S24. 

If the new reports are to be believed, Samsung could not only bring some of these features of One UI 6.1.1 to conventional phones, but it could also offer those with a new version of One UI. A well-reliable tipster shared a post reporting that he has spotted a new firmware version on the server for the Galaxy S24 Ultra on Samsung’s server. 

He mentioned the S928BXXU2AXF3 version. If this report comes true, then it will be the first time in the history of Samsung that it will release the One UI *.1.1 iteration for conventional or non-foldable smartphones. The reason behind this change appears to be that the giant could be planning to offer new features to conventional smartphones with the latest version of One UI because this time it is actively looking forward to offering more features than usual.

Reportedly, it could also offer more AI-powered features. So, the brand might want to highlight those by offering them a new version of One UI. If Samsung delivers the upcoming One UI 6.1.1 version to the Galaxy S24, then other old devices like the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S22 series could also be in line to receive the update. The update will bring more new AI-powered tools, including drawing on the screen using S-Pen and improved UI design.
