Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 are reportedly coming on August 10. The devices will introduce a new version of the company’s custom OS – One UI 4.1.1. Samsung One UI 4.1.1 isn’t a major upgrade that brings lots of new features, however, it will surely bring some significant changes for the Galaxy users.
One of those noteworthy changes has been spotted by the tipster Ice Universe. He claims that pre-installed with One UI 4.1.1, the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 will feature the “Swipe for split-screen” function for easier multitasking.
Currently, when you want to use a split-screen view you have to open the multi-window tray, tap the grid icon, open all apps and then drag and drop the desired apps. Alternatively, you can open Recent, tap the app’s icon, and click the split-screen view to use the feature.
But with One UI 4.1.1 on your Galaxy smartphone, you can just simply swipe left from the right side on the home screen to open apps in split-screen view. This is really a substantial step taken by Samsung to make multitasking easier.
If you don’t know, the multi-window feature on your Galaxy foldable can help you perform multiple tasks like a pro all day long. While a normal smartphone can open only two apps on a split-screen, you can use three apps at once on your Galaxy Z Fold.

Further, while using Galaxy Z Fold 3, you must have felt many times that the folded screen is very small and using the multitasking view in it is not as interesting as in any other phone, so let me tell you that this problem is going to be solved as the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will come with a slightly larger folded screen. Now you can use the split-screen view feature on your foldable phone with more fun.

One UI 4.1.1 will come to non-foldable Samsung phones?
After One UI 4.1, Samsung is all set to release the next One UI version – One UI 4.1.1 on August 10 along with Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 smartphones. There is no doubt that One UI 4.1.1 will be based on Android 12L but its features are yet to be revealed.
It is a matter of discussion whether the Android 12L-based One UI 4.1.1 update will be rolled out for all Samsung devices (including non-foldable and foldable) or only for foldable smartphones and tablets. It is worth mentioning that the company has not yet officially confirmed anything other than the release date, neither its features nor compatibility.
Like One UI 3.1.1, Samsung One UI 4.1.1 is also launching in the month of August with new foldable smartphones. If we go with the previous One UI version, then the latest One UI 4.1.1 will be unveiled along with the first foldable and will also be released for other eligible Galaxy devices.
But there is a possibility that it will be released only for the foldable smartphone. Recently, Samsung has started the One UI 5.0 Beta Program for the latest flagship smartphones including Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus, and Galaxy S22 Ultra in Korea. As per the reports, Galaxy S21, Galaxy S20, Galaxy A53 and Galaxy A52s devices also testing One UI 5.0 beta.
These devices have not received a One UI 4.1.1 update, for them, the company has started One UI 5.0 beta testing directly. In this condition we can say that the One UI 4.1.1 update will be released only for foldable smartphones.
Aside from this, the company already started bringing One UI 4.1.1 support for its stock apps. Several Galaxy apps including NiceStar, One Hand Operation +, Galaxy Themes, MultiStar, and Home Up have already received One UI 4.1.1 support. The company wants to make apps compatible with the upcoming major update.
