Samsung One UI 4.0 brings redesigned, customized widgets for effortless navigation 

Published

on

Samsung Galaxy S21

Samsung One UI 4 Beta program allows users to try out the advanced features of the One UI 4 before its official release. Owners of the Galaxy S21 series in selected markets can register to the beta program with the Samsung member app on their devices.

Participants will be able to preview the design of the One UI 4 with new features and post a bug. Samsung will use the information gathered in the beta system to optimize the One UI 4 user before delivering a final update, which is scheduled later this year.

Samsung’s One UI user interface brings an integrated mobile experience to Galaxy smartphones with simplified and streamlined interaction and a clean and elegant design.

With a One UI 4, users get customization options all the time. The wealth of themes options allow users to customize the look and performance of their device, providing them with tools to customize their home screens, icons, notifications, wallpapers, and much more. However, in this article, we’ll discuss UI changes in the Home screen, Lock Screen, and Always-on display (AOD) feature in the One UI 4.0 beta update.

Samsung One UI 4.0 Home Screen Customization

The most noticeable change in the One UI 4 is this year’s options for customizing the home screen and lock. Starting with the home screen, the widgets are updated with a new and refreshing look that comes with Android 12’s Material You redesign.

Widgets are enhanced with a circular look, and some widgets, such as a dual clock, will now switch from light to dark mode depending on the time of day. Unlike Material You, these widgets will not match their color background, that could be the change we see next.

Speaking of dark mode, Samsung has made some suggestive changes here to get seamless information. Icons, wallpapers, and some text areas are now slightly dim when in dark mode.

The Home screen widgets have been redesigned to the One UI 4 to give you more details while also making your home screen more stylish. You will also find recommendations for widgets that may be helpful to you.

You can see an example of a redesigned widget below with a two-city clock, now inserting a weather icon in the top right corner. This particular widget also now shows up as light or dark depending on the time in the selected city.

Samsung One UI 4.0 Lock Screen UI

On the lock screen, you can now switch the audio output to a different device, such as headphones or a speaker. This media output button is actually added to Android on Android 11, but it’s good to see it coming from Samsung’s Samsung 12 update.

You can now add a voice recording widget to the lock screen that lets you record voice memos without turning on your phone. When you double-tap, you get a monthly calendar view and your daily schedule, to help you better see your schedule.

Samsung One UI 4.0 Always on Display

As for Always on Display, there is a new option that has proven to be very useful so far. You can now choose to turn on AOD only when you receive new notifications. There are also many new stickers you can use to decorate your AOD if you’re in this type of thing.
