Various Samsung Galaxy devices will receive a major update this month. It consists the rollout of Samsung One UI 3. That is Android 11 with the Samsung software shell on top. This gives users easier access to frequently used functions.
Samsung One UI 3
The first phones that are allowed to use the latest version of Samsung’s One UI are the newer devices: Galaxy S20, S20 + and S20 Ultra. Then it’s the turn Galaxy Note20, Z Fold2, Z Flip, Note10, Fold and S10. After that, the Galaxy A-series will also be discussed, but that will not be until the first half of 2021.
The biggest change that the update entails is visual. The interface has become simpler and more stylish, with more focus on features such as the lock screen, notifications, home screen and quick menu. In addition, there is a dim / blur for notifications that provides a faster insight into what is important.
The movement effects within the system have been made smoother. There are new lock screen widgets and that means you don’t have to unlock your smartphone to control your music app, for example. In any case, you have more freedom to adjust the user interface to your taste.
If you often video call, you will notice that the full screen layout makes you seem even closer to the person you are calling. In addition, the camera software is being tackled, improving artificial intelligence-based zoom, automatic exposure and autofocus.
The gallery is also changing. If you now swipe up the screen when you have opened a photo, you will see related photos. The Samsung keyboard, Samsung Keyboard, has also been renewed. It has more languages (370 pieces) and it can now suggest emoji based on what you type.
Work and private life separated
Speaking of what you type: you can now set different profiles for work and private life. That is an extra hurdle to ensure that you do not accidentally send an unfriendly text or inappropriate photo to the wrong person. You will also find the new operating system options within Samsung One UI 3 Android 11, such as improved security and the option to give apps one-time access to the camera, mic or location of your phone.
Gerben van Walt Meijer, Marketing Manager Mobile at Samsung Netherlands says: “We think it is important that people can continuously get the best out of their smartphone. As soon as you own a Galaxy, it will also provide you with access to experiences that we cannot even imagine now for years to come. ”
