One UI 5: Samsung Lists The Best Features Of The Update For Galaxy Smartphones
New Connectivity Menu
A new Connected Devices menu has been added to the Settings, where you can now control functions like Quick Share, Smart View, Samsung DeX, and the intelligent pairing of accessories like Galaxy Buds.
Lock Screen Customization
One UI 5 will introduce additional customization options in the lock screen that are native and won’t require Good Lock to be installed. Simply press an element to reveal customization choices (such as the clock). The customization options available are clock format, notification layout and even the option to use videos as wallpaper on the lock screen, all without requiring additional steps through other applications.
Copy Text From PhotosWith One UI 5, smart text extraction will be available on Galaxy devices. To choose, copy, and search using the content of a picture, simply open it in the gallery and tap on a section of it that contains characters or numbers.
New Bixby Text Call
Additionally, Samsung has introduced Bixby Text Call, which translates the call’s audio in real-time with just one tap and lets you type or use predetermined responses as a response. One UI 4.1.1 in South Korea already has this functionality available; it will follow in the US in early 2023. Unfortunately, there is no indication of availability in Brazil.
New Layout For Notification & Calls
One UI 5 also makes enhancements to notifications. The bigger icons make it easier to identify the apps or the sender of message notifications. And the call screen has also been enhanced, displaying the options to answer, decline, and send fast responses more clearly if you are currently busy.
Enhanced Home Screen
The latest One UI 5 will also improve the One UI home screen, focusing on widgets, which can be grouped into smart formats only by dragging one over the other. Another improvement is the intelligent suggestion of applications, which will show which ones are useful to you at that time according to your usage patterns. Customization will also be improved in this version, with more color options in the wallpaper-based palette.
Privacy Feature In Gallery
Finally, One UI 5 will notify you if the image you are sharing contains any potentially sensitive data, such as a password or credit or debit card number, preventing information from leaking.
