One UI 7 Android 15

Android 15 means the arrival of One UI 7.0. Google is driving for its next biggest iteration in the tech industry, obviously Android 15. Already,  it has released two developer preview programs and is tested on Pixel devices, along with tons of customization and modification options. 

Usually, Google introduces its Android’s latest iteration early in the second half of the year; the expectation is the same for the Android 15 as well. As soon as Google appeared close to the stable release of its Android update, Samsung also started announcing its latest Android version-based One UI beta program, which is based on One UI 7.0. 

The Android 14-based One UI 6.0 era has almost come to an end, and now it’s time to discuss the Android 15-based One UI 7.0. Let’s take a closer look at the next biggest iteration in the tech world. 

Samsung has already introduced Galaxy AI, a power package of generative AI features, with One UI 6.1, so with One UI 7.0, it could offer more AI features, stable performance, upgraded functionality, a seamless experience, and whatnot, just to enhance users’ experiences on their older devices. Currently, Samsung is releasing the One UI 6.1 update to its eligible devices, and maybe deep down it started gearing up for One UI 7.0

Samsung Android 15 Update: One UI 7.0 Release Date, Features, Eligible/Ineligible Devices, and More 

It is expected that Android 15-based One UI 7.0 will be stable in late October 2024. This prediction is quite simple, as Samsung usually releases its latest Android-based One UI update between late October and early November; for instance, the last time One UI 6.0 was officially released was on October 30, 2023, whereas One UI 5.0 was released on October 24, 2022. So based on this prospect, it is expected that Android 15-based One UI 7.0 will be officially out sometime late in October.

One UI 7

One UI 7.0’s beta program could begin almost a month before the stable release in September 2024. However, this schedule could also shift forward; if Google actively works the same as now, then the stable version of Android 15 won’t appear so far from now. Once Android 15 gets stable, within no time Samsung will also release the Android 15-based One UI 7.0. 

The beta program for Android 15-based One UI 7.0 will only be held in these regions: 

  • The US, UK, India, Poland, Germany, Korea, and China. 

Android 15-based One UI 7.0 Eligible Devices List 

Samsung usually releases its latest software update to its flagship devices first, whether it is about a major OS-based One UI update or security patch. As per this ritual, the Galaxy S24 series is first in line to get the forthcoming Android 15-based One UI 7.0.

Samsung recently introduced the Galaxy S24 flagship series on Android 14-based One UI 6.1, which will be the first series to get the latest One UI 7.0 update. This will also be its first major update, and then the rest of the Galaxy S series devices will get the update soon, excluding the Galaxy S20 and Note 20 family as it already lost its software support. Specific devices from the Galaxy S, Galaxy Z, Galaxy A, Galaxy F, and Galaxy M series will be eligible for this update if they have not crossed their allotted software limit. 

Where One UI 7.0 will be the first major update for the Galaxy S24 series, at the same time this will be the last update for some Galaxy devices; for instance, the Galaxy S21 series and more.

These Samsung devices will receive OneUI 7.0 as their first major update

As we already mentioned above, the Galaxy S24 series will receive its first major OS update, Android 15-based One UI 7.0.

Samsung Galaxy Devices That Will Receive the Last Update As One UI 7.0 

As per the software policies, Samsung, at the time of launch, allotted the duration of the software support. Back in 2022, Samsung changed its software policy and committed to offering four years of major and five years of security patches. And now for the Galaxy S24 series, it has committed to offering seven years of software support. And before 2022, Samsung used to offer three years of major updates to its flagships.

When Could The Galaxy S24 Get Android 15 (One UI 7.0) Update 

Most likely, by the end of October, the Galaxy S24 series could get an Android 15, One UI 7.0 update. Whereas the beta program for this update for the Galaxy S24 could start a month before the stable release, maybe in August or September. Since Samsung rolled out its major OS update in October, and the Galaxy S24 is the latest flagship device, that’s why it is first in line to get the update, so by this point, in late October 2024, the Samsung Galaxy S24 could receive the One UI 7.0 update.

One UI 7.0 Will Boost Up Samsung Devices With An Upgraded Software Version 

Android 15, One UI 7.0 is the latest iteration to arrive. It’s pretty obvious since it is a major OS update, so it will bring tons of new features, changes, customizations, improvements, and more. It is expected that with this update, the brand will expand the Galaxy AI area by offering more generative AI features, security and privacy enhancement, partial screen recording, upgraded camera utilization in third-party apps, notification cooldown, and many more.

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

Published

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

Published

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.
