Samsung has recently released the One UI 6.1 update, which has brought several new features that provide a whole new experience for the users. The main highlighted features are the ones that are based on AI features. However, some features, such as the Auto option in Always on Display, are exclusive to Galaxy S24 devices and not available on older devices.

One UI 6.1 Always-on Display Auto Show Option

In the Galaxy S24 devices, you will get five different options, like “Auto”, “Always”, “Tap to Show”, “As Scheduled”, and ‘For New Notifications”. With all these options, you will be able to properly manage how you want to light up the Always-on display options. However, of all these options, the auto option has not arrived for the Galaxy S23 series devices.

When you select the Auto option on the Galaxy S24 devices, it automatically turns off the AOD functionally when it is too dark, like in your pocket. With this functionality, you will get better battery backup as it will stop the unnecessary screen.

However, to manage the AOD, you can also use other options, like tap to show, which also provides full control to make the AOD screen turn on when wanted, or you can set it to light up every time a new notification arrives.

Samsung initially introduced Galaxy AI exclusively for the Galaxy S24 series, then expanded it to 2023’s Galaxy flagship devices, and is now setting up to release it for 2022’s as well as 2021’s flagship lineups. 

Samsung has already teased the Galaxy S22 owners that ongoing testing is going on to deliver Galaxy AI features, and now recent reports are unveiling that not only the S22 series but also the entire 2022 and 2021 flagship lineups are in line to get the Galaxy AI features. 

This is being speculated by a forum post from Korea. A Samsung employee has confirmed that One UI 6.1 with Galaxy AI features will be coming to Samsung’s entire 2022 and even 2021 flagship lineups. Samsung had already announced earlier this week that more devices would receive Galaxy AI. 2023 Galaxy flagships have already grabbed the AI features, but noticeably, the Galaxy S23 FE is not eligible for the Instant Slow-Mo feature. 

  • Circle and search with Google
  • Live translation, to make voice and text translations of calls in real time;
  • Interpreter, who instantly translates the words of the interlocutors and displays them on a split screen;
  • Chat Assistant in the keyboard, to perfect the tone of the conversation;
  • Notes Assistant, for an AI-generated task summary and for creating templates to take notes with predefined formats;
  • Transcription Assistant to transcribe, summarize and possibly translate voice recordings;
  • generation wallpapers with AI
  • Generative change

Here’s the 2022 Galaxy device that would get Galaxy AI: 

  • Galaxy Tab S8
  • Galaxy Tab S8+
  • Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra
  • Galaxy S22
  • Galaxy S22+
  • Galaxy S22 Ultra
  • Galaxy Z Fold 4
  • Galaxy Z Flip 4

Samsung is also expanding the Galaxy AI to selected devices in 2021, although these devices would only support a few features such as Circle to Search and Magic Rewrite, which is expected to be a messy translation of Generative Edit. 

Here’s the eligible device list for the Galaxy AI in 2021: 

  • Galaxy S21
  • Galaxy S21+
  • Galaxy S21 Ultra
  • Galaxy Z Fold 3
  • Galaxy Z Flip 3
