Published

on

Samsung is working hard to provide the One UI 4 beta update for its high-end devices. As the company has already released Android 12 based One UI 4 beta 2 for the Galaxy S21 series. In addition to this, a recent report claims that the next One UI 4 Beta might be released in the coming week, maybe tomorrow. However, in this article, we are talking about the Emergency mode of One UI 4.0.

What is an Emergency mode?

Samsung’s Emergency mode enables you to extend your device’s standby time when you are in an emergency situation and you want your device to conserve power for as long as possible.

When this mode is activated, the screen’s brightness will decrease and some of the device’s functionality will be limited in order to conserve your battery’s charge. The home screen will be changed to a black theme to reduce battery consumption.

You will be able to use the Phone app to make a call to a specified contact and also to make emergency calls. You can also turn on the flash, sound alarms and send your location information to others in a message.
