After being accessible in Germany last week, Samsung has now made the One UI 5.0 beta downloadable for phones in the US and South Korea, with other territories “expected over the next few months”.
Only the trio of 2022 Galaxy S models—the S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra—are still eligible for the beta. Although the firm did not provide a timeline for adding additional models to the mix, it did emphasize the One UI 5.0’s primary characteristics, which include customization, security and accessibility features.
The updated edition offers 16 pre-set color themes depending on your wallpaper, giving you more color options. Widgets may be stacked on top of one another to conserve space on the homescreen and provide a paged view that you can swipe through.
With One UI 5, multilingual users will be able to specify many preferred languages for each app. Additionally, there are more sophisticated settings for preventing obtrusive app alerts.
With helpful hints and techniques on how to utilize the different camera functions and controls. The camera app helps novice users transition smoothly into utilizing the Pro and Pro Video modes. Additionally, it provides a more snappy zoom bar and informs users about the various lenses on board.
This edition also places a strong emphasis on security; the new Security and privacy dashboard will identify problems and provide solutions. Additionally, a number of accessibility features have been introduced, such as audio explanations for videos.
There are many more new features in One UI 5, but those are only a few. While the most current Galaxy S, Z and Tab S flagship models will receive four upgrades instead, many Galaxy smartphones should get version 5 since they are scheduled for three significant OS updates.
