Samsung has just started the One UI 5 Beta program for the Galaxy S22 series in Germany. At the same time, the company has started to release the first One UI 5 Beta build to eligible smartphones. Among the new features, Samsung expanded the Dynamic Theme Colour Palettes from 4 to 16, with the One UI 5 Beta!
The One UI 5 Beta changelog begins with the most wonderful feature – Dynamic Theme, which is now even more powerful and eye-catching, with a total of 16 Colour Palettes. It will let Samsung consumers easily get the right colors not only from lockscreen and homescreen wallpapers.
Not only from user-selected wallpaper, the One UI 5 software will now show you a total of 16 Colour Palettes in which the additional are from preset color themes and may be unrelated to the lockscreen or homescreen wallpaper. Anyways, this significant addition will surely enhance your experiences while using the Galaxy devices.
Google introduced the Material You design language with the Android 12 operating system. It brings 4 different Colour Palettes so you can apply one of the dominant colors from the wallpapers of your smartphone. However, the Android 13 brings 12 more new options for “basic color” themes.
As mentioned above, the 4 Colour Palettes will be created directly from the colors available on your homescreen or lockscreen wallpaper. However, the additional colors will be presented by the Material You design language so you can have more customization abilities.
I’ve not yet seen the One UI 5 Beta, however, the offerings of the One UI 5 Beta should be the same as the Android 13 operating system as Colour Palettes are also multi-toned, combining a bold color with a more relaxed complementary tone.

By the end of 2023, Samsung Display is likely to supply nearly 70 million units of OLED for the iPhone 15 series to Apple. The company’s OLED volume by model is estimated to be in the low 20 million units for the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus, 9 to 10 million for Pro, and ~ 30 million for Pro Max.
Among the four iPhone 15 models, the 15 Pro Max OLED estimate, which Apple plans to produce the most, is four times higher for Samsung than for LG Display. Industry watchers say that Samsung Display’s iPhone 15 Pro Max OLED volume is in the mid-20 million units, three times that of LG Display.
