Samsung One UI 7.0: Is Your Galaxy Ready for the Android 15 OS?

Published

One UI 7

Google has recently rolled out the first developer preview for its Pixel devices, but as a developer preview, it will be limited to its devices, while its official release is expected to take place in July or August. However, the update is the initial development of Android, so all the new changes will be available for the Galaxy devices in the form of the next Android update based on One UI 7.

For your information, in the initial Android 15 developer preview, several new features were spotted. The update has dedicatedly focused on the enhancement of device privacy and security innovations, such as Health Connect, which is now extended to level 10 and makes the environment more protected. There is also a new file integrity management API available that ensures that the files can be more protected and that they cannot be tampered with or corrupted. Users will also have access to partial screen features.

Along with this, the update also brings some performance enhancements and some new features for Android devices, which will improve the overall performance. According to the information, the Android 15 Preview brings some new GPU and CPU management and also brings a more enhanced way to manage the thermal thread room thresholds. 

To support the creators, the company has also introduced some new features to control camera flashes. If you want to get more details about the Android 15 DP, then you can also check the official site through this link.

Samsung devices will get Android 15 with the One UI 7.0

Samsung has already rolled out the One UI 6.0 update to almost all Galaxy devices, but now with the development, it will start rolling out the One UI 6.1 update for the eligible devices, and once done, it will move to the One UI 7 update, which will be available to Samsung devices. 

As far as the availability is concerned, based on the past timeline of a major update, it is expected that Samsung will introduce a beta program for Galaxy devices, and as usual, it will start giving the One UI 7.0 beta update with the latest Galaxy S series, the Galaxy S24 series. After giving some beta updates, the company will start rolling out the stable update right after the availability of the Android 15 stable update.

Even though Samsung hasn’t said exactly when the next One UI update will come, we can guess it’ll be available for the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra sometime between the middle and end of 2024.

The One UI 7.0 will be designed by Samsung, so the company may provide some new features exclusive to Galaxy devices. Like in the earlier One UI 6.1 update, the company has introduced some AI feature updates, so it is expected that we could get some additional AI feature with the Android 15-based One UI 7 update.

One UI 7.0 (Android 15) Might Bring Vertical App Drawer

Samsung’s next iteration is Android 15-based One UI 7.0, and deep down, it should be in the developing phase since Google already rolled out the first beta of Android 15. We expect the One UI 7.0 update to introduce a vertical app drawer. 

Transparently, Samsung updates its One UI skin in the most customizable way, despite lacking a feature named vertical app drawer, which users have been asking for a long time. Finally, it is now expected that Samsung could offer the vertical app drawer along with the One UI 7.0 update. 

If the reports are to be believed, the official in charge of Good Lock’s development unveiled that the forthcoming major update of One UI will bring the vertical option in the app drawer, as they unveiled while answering a user’s question regarding the possibility of getting the vertical app drawer feature back in Good Lock’s Home Up module. 

Samsung’s One UI launcher did not permit the awaited vertical app drawer facility, but it was offered as an option in Good Lock’s Home Up module. Interested parties could effortlessly use that feature to change the app drawer’s alignment as per their preference. However, the features were recently removed, and the reason behind this appears to be that One UI 7.0 is about to bring a vertical app drawer option; Home Up doesn’t need that feature anymore. 

Google has already made Android 15 Beta 1 available to download. A few months after Google I/O 2024, Samsung is expected to open the One UI 7.0 Beta program initially for its high-end Galaxy S24 device and then release it for the rest of the flagship device.

Android 15 Could Add Support For Wireless Charging Through NFC

Published

Android 15 is the next big iteration of the Android smartphone industry and is expected to bring an advanced layer of upgrades, improvements, new features, and changes as per the convenience of users. Plus, it is also expected to add support for wireless charging via NFC. 

Wireless charging, also called inductive charging, is a way to charge electronic devices without cables, and it is typically handled by the Qi standard. But now it appears that Google is setting up to add overdue support for charging through NFC in Android 15, though it is yet to clear what it may be used for. 

In 2020, the NFC standard added official support for limited wireless charging capabilities, allowing the NFC hardware already in the device to transmit power to other devices. 

Now, reports say that Android 15 appears to be working on support for NFC wireless charging. This is being speculated as code spotted in Android 15 Beta 1 by a colleague specifically calls out the addition of support for ‘NfC Charging.’ 

Although this feature is included within Android 15 Beta 1, it is not officially part of the Android Open Source Project. Since a recent consult on NFC charging in AOSP commits, it’s clear that Google is working on this feature. Noticeably, there are limitations to NFC charging (only 1W) as compared to regular Qi chargers. 

Although the use of this feature is currently unclear, it will be interesting to see how it operates.

Android 15 Will Let You Choose Any Third-Party App As Default Wallet App

Android 15

Google is actively working on Android 15 to offer bundles of new features, improvements, and changes for enhancing users’ experiences, out of which it is bringing a new power to set a third-party payment app as your default app for NFC payments. 

Android 15 Beta 1 is already out now, which brings several new features; most probably, these will be housed in the stable version. Among the dozens of new features, one of them is the ability to switch to using third-party apps as the default wallet app. The goal behind this change is simply to make Android devices more customizable. 

With this feature, if you set any third-party app as your default wallet app, all NFC payments will go through that application instead of the Google Wallet application. However, at the moment, it is yet to be exactly clear which wallet application will be supported, but you can expect to use other applications that permit the storage of credit or loyalty cards, car keys, and other things that help with different types of transactions. 

On the recently released Android 15 Beta 1, the Amex application also now shows up as an option next to the Google Wallet application on the default Wallet application settings page. It is expected that more applications should start listing up in this list eventually. Apart from this, it is already clear that Google is dedicatedly focusing on improving the privacy and security options with Android 15. 

Since Android 15 Beta 1 is already out, if the beta phase runs as per the fixed schedule, then it is expected that the stable version will be available sometime early in the second half of the year.
