Samsung considers LockStar support for Galaxy S24 AOD customization

Samsung One UI 6.1 13 devices

Samsung is reviewing LockStar for Galaxy S24 AOD customization. The Korean community’s moderator confirmed that the latest flagship phones don’t support personalization of the always-on-display using Good Lock’s LockStar module.

Thanks to the new screens, Samsung’s Galaxy S24 series brings an iPhone-like Always On Display feature. However, the company seemingly missed bounding it with Good Lock for customization. As a result, users are facing issues tweaking it through LockStar.

However, the latest input confirms that Samsung is considering LockStar support for Galaxy S24 AOD. This will allow users to renovate the always-on-display functionality on their device in various aspects including removal of certain elements.

LockStar doesn’t support AOD customization in the Galaxy S24 series. While an internal review is underway, a possible release may happen shortly. Meanwhile, the moderator hasn’t shared any specific timeline regarding the availability of the support.

Good Lock’s LockStar is one of the most popular plugins for Galaxy customization. Not only the lock screen, the LockStar also lets users tweak the AOD function. The suite will likely add support for the newly released phones well before July Unpacked.

Beyond Apple, Huawei’s resurgence in China raises concerns for Samsung

Huawei P60 Pro

Huawei is making a stunning comeback in its home ground. The company scored a 70% year-on-year growth in its smartphone sales in China in the first quarter. At the same time, sales of Apple dropped by over 19%, reports Counterpoint Research.

The report highlights that the Chinese phone maker is set to outpace Apple in China. As Apple is already facing heat, it’s alarming for all smartphone vendors including Samsung. After Apple, Huawei’s next target will be Samsung which leads the Global market.

Huawei, which was at 9.3% in the first quarter of 2023, jumped to 15.5% in Q1 this year. Apple led the Chinese market in 1Q23 with approximately 20% market share slipped to 15.7% in the first quarter of this year, dropping to the third spot in China.

Earlier, IDC pointed out that Apple is facing a market decline as it lost momentum in China. The local government’s push for local vendors is also helping Huawei to eat Apple’s market. Well, Vivo and Honor were the top two brands by market share.

“Apple’s sales were subdued during the quarter as Huawei’s comeback has directly impacted Apple in the premium segment,” said Ivan Lam, senior research analyst at Counterpoint.
