Samsung is set to soon launch its new One UI 5 skin based on Android. 13, which succeeds the Android 12-powered One UI 4 from last year. Samsung’s take on Android 13, called One UI 5, is ready to come out of public beta testing “in the coming weeks”
Highlights include a more personalized lock screen and new modes to filter out unwanted disruptions based on your activity. Here are the new exciting features arriving in Samsung One UI 5
One UI 5: What’s new?
Samsung claims One UI 5 will be its most customizable user interface yet. It will allow users to use Routines to trigger a sequence of actions on their devices based on user-specific activities. The automated settings can be used for various activities throughout the day. Users will be able to set the phone to do certain actions when they are sleeping, driving, exercising, etc.
Lock Screen Customization:
When you long-press your lock screen, you’ll see options to customize your wallpaper and clockface. There’s an option to create a wallpaper using a short video clip, too. Samsung says there are more wallpapers to choose from for your home and lock screens, including new color and graphic options.
Samsung expanded its Routines feature to kick-start automation, like connecting to a mobile hotspot or turning on airplane mode. But there’s a new feature, too, just called “modes.” They’re designed to filter out distractions for different activities, like working, sleeping, or exercising
A new Good Lock App
Users will also be able to use a video as their lock screen wallpaper, while the look of elements like the clock and notification pop-ups can also be changed now.
Bixby Text Call feature
A new Bixby Text Call feature will also answer phone calls with a text-to-audio response. When a user cannot respond to a call, they can type a response which Bixby will convert to voice and deliver to the other party. It sounds like a clever way to take a phone call when you’re somewhere loud or need privacy. Or it might come in handy if you hate talking to strangers on the phone
One UI 5 will also bring in other features that will let you do things like extract text from images, control all connected devices from your phone from a single menu, and access features like Quick Share, Smart View, and Samsung DeX more easily. A new Auto switch Buds menu will also let users switch their earbuds from one device to another with ease.
There’s also a new notification on the share panel that will warn users when they are about to share photos that may contain sensitive information like your credit card details or passport number.
