Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra

Everyone is busy managing their lifestyle by doing various jobs. When you’re in a hurry, you might actually not like the process of unlocking your phone and dismissing all those notifications. Well, with Samsung Galaxy phones, you can easily control notifications so that you don’t have to look at useless stuff.

Staying connected is important and notifications alert you when something new has happened with one of your apps. Although it’s great for holding your important messages on top, it can be annoying when you’re reminded to open it while performing another important task.

Samsung launched the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6 with One UI 6.1.1 software, introducing an impressive feature called Portrait Studio. This feature uses generative AI to transform normal photos into artistic portraits with just a few taps.

Portrait Studio of One UI 6.1.1 is accessible through Gallery and Contacts apps. It offers four different styles of portraits- Comic, 3D Character, Watercolor, and Sketch. Whether you prefer a comic-inspired look or a watercolor effect, there’s a style for every taste.

The process of using the Portrait Studio is very simple. First, select a portrait photo from your gallery, pick the desired style, and let the AI work its magic. Even if there are multiple people in the photo, you can select which individual you want the portrait created for.

Final Portraits can be saved through the photo editor or you can set directly it as a profile image for contacts.

The quality of the generated portrait improves with higher-resolution photos where the subject is visible and facing forward. Also, all portraits created using Portrait Studio contain a watermark in the bottom left corner to indicate their AI generation.
