Samsung One UI 4.0: Features
Based on Android 12, the One UI 4.0 delivers even more personal, safe and effortless experiences on your device. Featuring a totally reimagined interface just for you, new privacy features that are designed for your safety and put you in control, and more seamless ways to get right to your gameplay or even switch to a new device.
Personalization – Starting with Android 12 on Pixel devices, you’ll be able to completely personalize your phone with a custom color palette and redesigned widgets. Using what we call color extraction, you choose your wallpaper and the system automatically determines which colors are dominant, which ones are complementary and which ones just look great. It then applies those colors across the entire OS: the notification shade, the lock screen, the volume controls, new widgets and much more.
Fluid motion and animations – From the moment you pick up an Android 12 device, you’ll feel how it comes alive with every tap, swipe and scroll. Your phone quickly responds to your touch with smooth motion and animations.
We’ve also simplified interactions and recrafted the entire underlying system to make your experience more fluid and efficient. Your Android devices are now faster and more responsive with better power efficiency so you can use your device for longer without a charge.
This was achieved by some under-the-hood improvements including reducing the CPU time needed for core system services by up to 22% and reducing the use of big cores by the system server by up to 15%.
Redesigned system spaces – Some of the most important spaces on your phone — like your notification shade, quick settings and even the power button — have been purposefully reimagined to help you get things done.
The notification shade is more intuitive and playful, with a crisp, at-a-glance view of your app notifications, whatever you’re currently listening to or watching, and Quick Settings that let you control practically the entire operating system with a swipe and a tap.
The Quick Settings space doesn’t just look and feel different. It’s been rebuilt to include Google Pay and Home Controls, while still allowing for customization so you can have everything you need most in one easy-to-access place.
To make sure you always have help from Google at your fingertips, you can now long press the power button to invoke Assistant to make a phone call, open apps, ask questions or read aloud text-heavy articles.
Private and secure by design – Android 12 includes new features that give you more transparency around which apps are accessing your data, and more controls so you can make informed choices about how much private information your apps can access.
The new Privacy Dashboard offers a single view into your permissions settings as well as what data is being accessed, how often and by which apps. It also lets you easily revoke app permissions right from the dashboard.
We’ve added a new indicator to the top right of your status bar so you know when your apps are accessing your microphone or camera. And if you want to remove app access to these sensors for the entire system, we’ve added two new toggles in Quick Settings.
We’re also giving you more control over how much information you share with apps. With new approximate location permissions, apps can be limited to seeing just your approximate location instead of a precise one. For example, weather apps don’t need your precise location to offer an accurate forecast.

One UI 5.0 ‘Extract text’ feature spotted in One UI 4.1.1
Samsung debuted the Android 13 Beta testing program for the Galaxy S22 series devices in select markets. The One UI 5.0 software is based on the new operating system and brings a number of new features, in which the “Extract text” is included, but it’s also spotted in One UI 4.1.1.
Highlighted by tipster IceUniverse, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 smartphone running Android 12L-based One UI 4.1.1 brings the “Extract text” feature, similar to the One UI 5.0 Beta, based on Android 13. You can easily activate the text recognition feature by long pressing the text or tapping the “T” icon in the lower right corner.
Samsung One UI 5.0 and One UI 4.1.1 software versions introduce this amazing feature in order to further increase productivity. Using this feature, you can extract text from any image or screen from Samsung Keyboard, Internet, Gallery, or whenever you take a screenshot.
Samsung Fold4 has some One UI 5 functions, such as text recognition in pictures, just long press the text to be recognized to copy. I've seen some Youtubers also click the "T" icon in the lower right corner, which is completely redundant.Just long press the text directly. pic.twitter.com/p0Q7ZRa9fO

Extract text feature
Once the text is recognized by the software, you can get options to copy, translate and share it as well as you will be able to paste the result into a message, email, or document instead of typing. As the One UI 4.1.1 also offers the same functionality, Samsung might bring it to more Galaxies ahead of the One UI 5.0.
Moreover, the new One UI versions also show suggestions based on text when it appears in an image in Gallery, Camera, or other apps. For instance, if you take a picture of a sign with a phone number or web address on it, you can tap to call the number or visit the site without any hassle.
One UI 4.1.1
Samsung introduced the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 foldable devices that are pre-loaded with the Android 12L/12-based One UI 4.1.1 software. This is a minor upgraded version of the Android 12-based One UI 4.1 and brings some additional features and improvements.
Samsung Android 13 Coverage:
Samsung Wallpaper and Style August 2022 update brings One UI 4.1.1 support
We’re in mid-August and Samsung has begun dispatching the August 2022 update for Wallpaper and style app, which comes with Android 12L-based One UI 4.1.1 support. Several Galaxy apps already received this support ahead of the official release.
Samsung Wallpaper and Style One UI 4.1.1
The new update for Samsung Wallpaper arrives with version 2.0.07 on Galaxy Store. The latest update fixes some minor bugs and enhances the overall performance and stability of the app.
As per the official notes, the update does not include any additional changes or features but makes the app compatible with One UI 4.1.1 based on Android 12L. With this update, the company aims to enhance the compatibility of the app.
Users of Galaxy devices will have to install a 10.02MB package to install the newest update. You can install the update via their personal data as the update size is too small. Notably, the update is compatible with Galaxy devices running Android 12L-based One UI 4.1.1 or below (till Android 11).
You can install the latest update easily with the official Galaxy Store service. Firstly, open Galaxy Store and expand the menu bar where you can find a toggle entitled “Updates”, tap it, and a new page with updates for Samsung apps available on your Galaxy phone will appear.
You can also download the latest update from the link mentioned below.

Users can apply dark mode to wallpapers by visiting Settings, then Wallpaper and Style option. Now scroll down and turn on the toggle of Apply Dark mode to Wallpaper option. It is done.
One UI 4.1.1 Light Performance profile saves battery of Galaxy Z Fold 4, Flip 4
Battery is one of the most important parts of a smartphone and we buy a mobile phone only after knowing this. Samsung launched Galaxy Fold 4 and Galaxy Flip 4 with battery power of 4400mAh and 3700mAh respectively.
With these foldable smartphones, the company has enhanced its battery life as compared to its predecessor as well as brings One UI 4.1.1 features. Aside from several One UI 4.1.1 features, Galaxy Fold 4 and Galaxy Flip 4 offer a new feature to boost battery performance called Performance profile.
According to the information, the performance profile option on the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4 is totally based on Performance and battery life. However, this feature doesn’t apply to games as you can manage it by Game Booster settings.
One UI 4.1.1 battery boosting Performance profile feature offers two options to enhance battery life that are Standard and Light. The Standard profile gives the recommended balance between processing speed, battery life, and cooling efficiency. While the Light profile prioritizes battery life and cooling efficiency over processing speed.
You can see the Performance Profile option by going to the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Fold 4’s Settings. You can choose between Standard or Light. To be mentioned, this appears to substitute the Enhanced Processing toggle that has been present in prior One UI versions.
After testing these two options on the Galaxy Z Fold 4, a Reddit user reviewed that the benchmarking apps reduce about 20% of total raw performance on average after turning on Lite mode. These smartphones processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 also helps to boost efficiency.
