Samsung One UI 4.1

Android smartphones offer a system-wide interface for letting users select pictures, videos, and additional files when other apps need access to more than just the camera roll. Meanwhile, Google is further improving this feature with Android 13 OS.

Google Android 13 has an enhanced photo picker. The feature is being split to provide more controls over the files that can be accessed by different apps. There are now different categories for Files and media, Photos and videos, and Music and audio.

Android 13 Enhanced Photo Picker is getting highlighted and being loved by beta users. And Samsung which is one of the top smartphone tech giants, we expect it to bring this wonderful feature with One UI 5.0 for their Galaxy device owners.

Android 13-based One UI 5.0 Enhanced Photo Picker will allow users to select specific files to share with different apps, as opposed to an ‘all-or-nothing’ method. It includes both local and cloud-stored photos without apps needing additional permissions for media access on your device.

This new photo picker will provide a browsable, searchable interface that will present the user with their media library, sorted by date (from newest to oldest). Users can specify that they should see only photos or only videos.

This is a standard and optimized way for users to share their files securely. It will surely help protect the photo and video privacy of users. The maximum number of media selections allowed by default is set to 1, however, you can change it.

Samsung One UI 5.0 Key features

Better support for Material You

Samsung very well adopted Android 12’s Material You and generated a Color palette for One UI 4 users that syncs with your phone’s wallpaper. When enabled, it applies themes to menus, buttons, and backgrounds as well as Google and Samsung app icons.

But this is not enough, the third-party apps that don’t adopt Material You spoil the look of the app drawer. Samsung should make these themes functional for third-party applications as well.

Big screen optimizations

Android 12 One UI 4.1 is absolutely great but there are still many apps that don’t optimize their layout properly on foldable devices and tablets. Google, on the other hand, has Android 12L which has some optimizations for large-screen devices and these will come to Galaxy phones next month.

But the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 is coming and I am looking forward to seeing what new optimizations the company will bring for larger-screen devices.

Improved notification control

Samsung One UI 4.1 has dozens of settings to manage Notifications, still, there’s a need to improve. Samsung One UI 5.0 is expected to bring the Notification permission feature to Galaxy users.

In order to send you notifications, apps will need you to give them your permission and you can say ‘no’ if you don’t want a particular app to send a notification.

Per-app language settings

People speak different languages in different countries and states and some apps having only English or a few language support could be a limitation for them. It would be nice if these apps could automatically translate the UI elements and text to a language that is set by default on the device.

New Media PlayBack UI

The current media playback interface on Samsung devices is excellent. But the company will further improve it in terms of looks as well as make it easier to see the track that’s been played.

Android 12 One UI 4 Dynamic theming applies your chosen color palette to all Samsung apps, Google apps, Quick settings, and others. Meanwhile, with Android 13 One UI 5.0, these changes will also be applied to media controls along with the awesome squiggly playback line.
