Presently, the One UI 3.1 is the latest software system powered by Android 11 and developed by Samsung. As always, the next version of the One UI will be introduced at the launch event of the company’s next flagship (s), which will be based on the Android 11 operating system.

Although it’s difficult to know the exact features or changes of the next iteration of the One UI, a Samsung insider recently come to light revealing a massive development on the functionalities of the One UI 3.5, which will exclusively come pre-installed with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3.

According to IceUniverse (via AndroidHeadlines), Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 could come with a new adaptive UI and the name of this UI could be “Split UI”. The tipster tweeted a set of GIFs, which shows the Split UI in action. The GIFs clearly show that this UI radically adapts an app according to the screen size and orientation.

Apart from this, the alleged One UI 3.5’s Split UI also adjusts as per the device’s orientation – portrait or landscape. You can see all the leaked GIFs below where the first one reveals some sort of clothing app, the second is presenting the YouTube app, or something identical to it, and the third GIF shows Samsung’s ‘Messages’ app.

However, it’s unclear whether these GIFs are leaked or created by a third party, but the source claims that the Split UI is coming with One UI 3.5. If the adaptation of this type of UI gets succeeds, then it will surely fix the issues with Android tablets in order to deliver a better overall user experience even on big-screen devices.

Samsung One UI 5.1 quick settings, notification panel looks attractive in concept



Samsung One UI 5.1 Concept

At present, innovation is lacking in the industry as phone makers are striving for ideas to practically make upgrades worthy. Samsung’s going to introduce the Galaxy S23 next year, which is going to be a lot similar to the S22 in terms of innovation, except for the 200MP camera on Ultra.

While the devices seem to be featuring a new rear design, the software part is now requiring major upgrades. For two years, Samsung has been introducing the same notification panel and quick settings interface with additional improvements and usability changes.

Meanwhile, a Samsung fan comes up with One UI 5.1 concept showing the new attractive notification panel and quick settings user interface. Shared by Twitter user @Vetrox360, the One UI 5.1 concept images introduce revamped quick settings panel, which seems to be inspired by Android 13 and ColorOS.

Along with sharing the concept images, the user asked Samsung about the implementation of these changes in the One UI 5.1, however, the answer is yet to be given. The user radically tweaked the interface by adding larger pill-shaped Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles and a big media player in the header.

Besides that, the traditional options including circular quick settings toggles are placed, followed by a brightness control slider, device, and media output control, and notifications section. The interface brings clear blur without Samsung’s gray overlay in the One UI 5.1 concept.

No doubt, Samsung appreciates consumers’ feedback, but there are few chances of executing this new design in the One UI 5.1. The upcoming One UI version will be an improved variant of One UI 5, while, the company is likely to make UI changes with Android 14.

Aside from this, it’s most likely that the One UI 5.1 update will bring more customization options for the lock screen and home screen, as Samsung showcased at SDC 2022. Notably, the company may have reserved combined battery widgets similar to iOS and stock Android, which could be a part of the next One UI version.
