Samsung One UI 5.0 RAM Plus

With the Galaxy A52s smartphone, Samsung debuted the virtual RAM feature called RAM Plus, which was rolled out to more Galaxy devices with firmware updates. Later on, Samsung introduced the customizable RAM Plus with up to 8GB of virtual RAM choice with the One UI 4.1.

When activated, the RAM Plus feature occupies a specific part of the phone’s internal memory in order to boost the apps’ performance on Galaxy devices. However, all Galaxy fans don’t find RAM Plus feature useful, so Samsung has now added an option to disable the virtual RAM.

Thanks to Android 13, we can now customize our phones to our personal style. The new Android 13 OS introduces expanded Themed App Icons so Android users can set more apps – not just Google apps – to match their phone’s wallpaper tint and colors.

Officially released on August 15, Google’s new mobile platform – Android 13 brings an evolved look and style, which is based on Material You. As result, consumers can now customize non-Google apps too to match their phone’s wallpaper theme and colors.

This additional functionality makes your phone’s home screen even more unique yet cohesive to your style. The feature works on the Material You and Dynamic Theming engine, which creates Color Palettes as well for the customization of UI elements.

During the development of Android 13, Google informed app developers that they can opt into themed app icons. This feature tweaks the app icons in supported Android launchers to adapt the coloring of the user’s chosen wallpaper and other themes.

To make apps Themed Icons supported with Android 13 OS, developers are required to provide both an adaptive icon and a monochromatic app icon during submission. Monochromatic app icon helps the OS apply the wallpaper-based colors using Material You design.

On devices running Android 13, users can turn on the Themed icons toggle in system settings, so the supported stock launchers will alter the app icons by using the coloring of the user’s chosen wallpaper and theme. Notably, the monochromatic app icon is compulsory for Themed App Icons feature.

In case the user hasn’t enabled themed app icons, the app lacks a monochromatic icon, or the launcher doesn’t support themed app icons, the home screen will display an adaptive or standard app icon instead of the Themed App Icons.

Android 13

On August 15, Google officially launched the Android 13 operating system for Pixel devices and started the update rollout through OTA. The new OS will be available for Samsung Galaxy devices later this year, as the US tech giant has officially cited in the press release.
