Samsung One UI 5.0 Beta Now Available in the US
Before the launch, Samsung released the One UI 5.0 beta update for Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus, and Galaxy S22 Ultra users in the United States. The new features are revealed in the new One UI update patch log. According to a 9to5Google report, which includes the changelog, the update on their S22 Ultra is only available after inserting a T-Mobile SIM card. It is unknown whether the update is available for all US carriers.
According to the changelog, the OneUI update will allow users to choose a custom theme and colour palette based on their wallpaper. They can also stack multiple widgets of the same size on top of one another, which is similar to iOS 15.
One UI 5.0 also adds more notification control. Setting permissions allows users to exclude apps that frequently send notifications. Users can also choose whether apps can display pop-up notifications, app icon badges, and notifications on the Lock screen.
One UI 5.0 will allow users to set a different language for each app based on compatibility for a more personalized experience. Each app's preferred language can be changed in Settings.\
Following in the footsteps of iOS, One UI now includes Optical Character Recognition (OCR). When text appears in an image in Gallery, Camera, or other apps, actions based on the text are recommended. For example, if you photograph a sign with a phone number or web address, you can tap to call the number or visit the website. Samsung has also updated DeX and Bixby Routines.
