Samsung is hard at work finishing up One UI 5.1 for the Galaxy S23 Series: SamMobile reports that Samsung is nearing completion of the One UI 5.1 interface for the Samsung Galaxy S23 flagship series, which is expected to be introduced at the beginning of next year. Samsung Netherlands mentioned One UI 5.1 in a footnote of a blog post it released last month. According to the note, starting with One UI 5.1, users will be able to change the wallpaper, clock style, and notification pop-ups all from the lock screen itself.

Naturally, One UI 5.1 will have a number of new features, though Samsung has been generally secretive about what we can expect to see in the newest version of its Android interface at this point. While the next version, One UI 5.1, is being developed, the current version, One UI 5.0, which includes Android 13, is still being distributed. Samsung, as expected, upgraded its flagship devices including the Galaxy S22 series and its two most recent foldable (the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Z Flip 4).

Samsung has been releasing One UI 5.0 while working on One UI 5.1.

In addition to the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, the Galaxy S21, and Galaxy S20 models now run on One UI 5.0/Android 13. The update was rolled out to the Galaxy Tab S8 tablet family, as well as a few midrange Galaxy A models (A33, A52, A53, and M73) (M32, M52).

A benchmark test on the SM-S918B, purportedly a European variant of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, showed that it would be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform, as we reported late Wednesday night. For most areas outside the US, Canada, and China, Samsung has traditionally used its own Exynos CPUs to power its flagship Galaxy S series. The Snapdragon chipset was commonly seen inside the flagship series in certain regions.

This year, however, Samsung is rumored to be sticking to powering each Galaxy S23 unit with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. This would ensure that all Galaxy S23 series consumers get the same experience of owning a handset powered by a powerful SoC. Because the SoC was discovered on a European Galaxy S23 Ultra benchmark, we can safely assume that Samsung will not use the Exynos processor in any of its top devices in 2023.

The bottom of the screen is now a touchable area thanks to the One UI interface.

The One UI interface was designed by Samsung with the intention of placing all touchable features as close to the bottom of the screen as feasible. This improves the usability of Galaxy devices with large screens, allowing users to perform more tasks with just one hand.

We anticipate that Samsung will once again release three flagship smartphones under the Galaxy S23 brand: the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra. The Galaxy S23 Ultra, like last year’s model, is speculated to borrow design cues from Samsung’s discontinued Galaxy Note series.

For those who preferred the Galaxy Note’s design, the South Korean company preserved the Galaxy Note’s huge screen and luxury style when it released the Galaxy S22 Ultra last year. The Galaxy S22 Ultra also supports and includes housing for the S-Pen. In addition, by discontinuing the Galaxy Note as a stand-alone model, Samsung made room for a release window for its foldable phones that the company could hold steady for years to come.

In the second half of the year, Samsung will no longer have to divide its marketing expenditure between the Galaxy Note and its foldable. The first half of the year can be dedicated to the company’s flagship line (including the Note-like Galaxy S Ultra model), while the second half can be spent promoting the Galaxy Z Fold and the Galaxy Z Flip.
