Samsung One UI 5.1 Comes to the New Galaxy Devices

Midway through February, Samsung made the One UI 5.1 upgrade available to users of Galaxy devices. The speed at which this was made available to compatible devices thanks to Korean technology is astounding. Currently, Android 13 with One UI 5.1 on top is operating on a number of Galaxy smartphones and tablets. Users are curious as to whether their Galaxy mobile will receive this amazing upgrade as the firm has begun creating and testing the new One UI 5.1.1 version.

What is Samsung One UI 5.1?

One UI is Samsung’s collection of software skins, or modifications, for Android. Every numbered Android release since One UI’s launch in 2018 has also gotten a significant One UI upgrade. Android 9 was the foundation for One UI 1; Android 10 was the foundation for One UI 2; and so on. One UI 5.1 is a small upgrade to the foundation laid down by One UI 5, based on Android 13.
On several Samsung smartphones, including the Galaxy S22 series, Galaxy S21 series, and others, the update is accessible. In the upcoming weeks and months, the update will be applied to more devices.

What’s new in Samsung One UI 5.1?

Being a point update, One UI 5.1 makes only minor changes to One UI 5, adding a few new features including improved gallery and camera apps, updated widgets, and the option to store screenshots somewhere other than your camera roll. Here, we discuss some of the most significant functional updates—although the word “most significant” is rather ambiguous. Check out our comprehensive guide to what’s new in One UI 5.1 for a more detailed look at new features, such as the enhanced setup procedure and DeX capabilities.

Samsung One UI 5.1 Overview:

Samsung One UI 5.1 updates the camera app’s More tab to include a shortcut to Expert RAW for devices that can handle it. The shortcut downloads Expert RAW the first time you hit it; the program isn’t really installed by default with One UI 5.1. After that, though, it’s a quick and simple way to reach Samsung’s more robust camera interface, which is useful if you prefer to fiddle with manual settings like ISO and shutter speed on smartphone cameras.

Samsung: One UI 5.1

Samsung One UI 5.1 also includes some updates for the Samsung Gallery app. Now that it can identify faces in images, the software encourages you to share albums with the subjects of your shots. The Gallery app attempts to remove an item from a photo when you tap and hold on to it, generating a transparent PNG that you may save separately or share with other applications. It also recognizes things inside photographs. Less excitingly, you can now swipe up any photo in the Gallery app to display its information, including EXIF data and the location of the photo’s capture (if the location is enabled).

New and improved widgets

Samsung One UI 5.1 includes a pair of new battery widgets that display the remaining battery life of both your phone and linked peripherals, including both Samsung products like the Galaxy Watch 5 and other gadgets that are now Bluetooth-attached to your phone. With some lovely new animations, Samsung’s weather widget has also been improved.

New modes and Routines functionality

Samsung One UI 5.1 adds several new features to Modes and Routines, formerly known as Bixby Modes. Each mode, or collection of settings that One UI may automatically apply depending on what you’re doing, can have a unique wallpaper, in case you’d like something more calming when in, say, the Sleep mode. Routines (activities that take place automatically when specific circumstances are fulfilled) get new features like the option to modify your ringtone and additional triggers like the ability to enable or disable airplane mode.

Android 13 backed in

A phone running Android 12 or older will still benefit from the system-level upgrades that the most recent version of Android offers, even though One UI 5.1 is a minor upgrade above One UI 5. A new notifications permission, improved dynamic theming, and other enhancements are among them.

Make the most of your Samsung experience

If your Samsung smartphone is still eligible for One UI upgrades, version 5.1 should be available shortly based on the deployment schedule thus far. While you wait, see how you can personalize your Samsung keyboard or get the most out of Samsung Messages (sure, new Samsung phones have Google’s texting app, but Samsung Messages is still available). It could be time to get a new phone if you have a Samsung smartphone that will never receive One UI 5.1.
