The new version of Android and with it the One UI 5.0 from Samsung is approaching. Here you can find out what innovations are on board.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 models will be the first to receive One UI 5.0
Android 13 and with it One UI 5.0 will be available on Galaxy devices in the coming months. The first smartphones from Samsung to receive the update are the Galaxy S22 series models. Google recently released the final beta of Android 13 for testing. As Sammobile.com has learned, Samsung will start its beta test for One UI 5.0 in July.
One UI 5.0 will offer these innovations
In addition to new functions, the Galaxy devices should also receive various improvements, such as smoother animations and improved performance. The notification center, in which the app icons are enlarged, has also been revised. In addition, Samsung adds an OCR function at various points in the interface, which can be used directly from the Gallery app or the Samsung keyboard to recognize text on images, for example. This saves the tedious task of entering texts. The first leaked screenshots of One UI 5.0 also show a new screen for app rights release and a switch for activating “Ultra-wideband (UWB)” is added in the “Connections” section.
There will be more information about new features and improvements in One UI 5.0 as soon as the beta is available. Shipping of One UI 5.0 will begin when Google releases the final version of Android 13 later this year.
Because One UI 5.0 is based on Android 13, all the innovations and improvements of Android 13 will of course also be included. These include:
