Launched back in August last year, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is a third-generation foldable smartphone. It comes with multiple improvements over its predecessors, such as a larger cover screen. Although the device comes with a much bigger cover screen than the previous model, it is still not as big as users wanted to have.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3’s cover display hasn’t received much attention from its users as it doesn’t offer much in terms of functionality. At present, the phone’s back screen supports only six widgets, including Music, Weather, Today’s schedule, Next alarm, Voice Recorder, and Timer, which aren’t very important.
However, it seems to be changed now. An XDA’s Android app developer named Jagan2 has appeared with CoverScreen OS. It’s an application that mimics a much more functional secondary OS for the cover screen of your Galaxy Z Flip 3.
The said CoverScreen OS allows you to reply to messages via voice typing, access the app drawer, open apps (some games as well), use quick setting enable/disable toggles, perform notification actions, support third-party widgets, and even features an active media player card. Interestingly, it also makes Samsung Pay mobile payments directly from the cover display.
If you too want to use this amazing CoverScreen OS on your Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, you can follow these steps to install it on your Galaxy Z Flip 3.
How to setup CoverScreen OS on Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3:
- Download CoverScreen OS from the Google Play Store.
- Set up Bixby (required for fingerprint unlock to launch apps on the cover screen)
- Set side key to launch Bixby on long press.
- Navigate to Settings > Advanced features > Side key and toggle ‘Wake Bixby’ under ‘Press and hold’.
- Launch CoverScreen OS and log in with your Google account.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to grant accessibility permissions.
- Tap on the toggle in the top right corner of the app to allow notification access and enable CoverScreen OS.
- Fold your Galaxy Z Fold 3 and you should see a welcome notification from CoverScreen OS.
Before you start using CoverScreen OS, make sure to enable Bixby on your device. It doesn’t seem to work if you install and set up the app first and then enable Bixby.
Samsung making something that most of the Galaxy S23 buyers won’t like
Samsung is reportedly working on two new Exynos mobile chipsets including a mid-range and a flagship. Previously, it is reported that the company won’t launch any Exynos variant of its upcoming flagship smartphone lineup, due to the poor response of Exynos 2200.
Meanwhile, the latest report claims that the Korean tech giant is still working on a new flagship Exynos processor that is likely to be installed in the upcoming Galaxy S23 series smartphones. The codename of that under-development chipset is S5E9935, while the Exynos 2200’s codename is S5E9925.
According to the company’s naming practice, this chipset might debut as the Exynos 2300 next year. However, there’s no information available regarding the upgrades and improvements of this chipset over the Exynos 2200 that packs AMD’s Xclipse GPU.
This year, Samsung extended the Snapdragon variant models’ availability to more regions compared to the previous years. The company is shipping the Snapdragon variants of the Galaxy S22 series in one of the biggest markets in the world – India, where Exynos was shipped for years.
If Samsung is going to introduce the Exynos 2300 chipset this year, it will surely be debuting with the Galaxy S23 series phones, however, the availability will be limited. If Samsung remains on its Exynos 2300 chip development, the Galaxy S23 buyers’ Snapdragon-only dream will remain a dream.
