Samsung introduced the Android 12L-based One UI 4.1.1 OS alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 last week. This custom OS is specially designed for foldable phones, however, select regular Galaxy phones will get it too.
Recently, a new test firmware has been spotted on the Checkfirm app that reveals Samsung Galaxy A52s is testing the One UI 4.1.1 update internally. It’s an indication that a whole new custom OS with a bunch of new features is coming soon to this famous mid-range phone very soon.
According to the information by a Reddit user, this Samsung Galaxy A52s One UI 4.1.1 test firmware holds the build version A528BXXU1DVH2. However, there is no other information on the matter other than this, the customer nor shared the region where the update is being tested.
Earlier, the same smartphone was also spotted testing the major Android 13-based One UI 5.0 update. It looks like two big One UI updates are being prepared for the device that will be released one after the other. Obviously, One UI 4.1.1 will be the first.
The Galaxy A52s was launched last year. It entered the markets with Android 11-based One UI 3.x. Later in the same year, it grabbed the first major update as Android 12-based One UI 4.0 and then received One UI 4.1 this year.
The Android 13-based One UI 5 will be its second major OS while the Android 14-based One UI 6 will be the last. However, only three Android updates are not enough for such a powerful device, like this year’s A series phone, the Galaxy A52s should also support 4 Android upgrades.
Galaxy A52s will receive One UI 4.1.1 Taskbar?
One UI 4.1.1 introduces a major feature called Taskbar to make multitasking easier for foldable devices. Recently, it’s been reported that older Galaxy phones will also get the Taskbar feature with the One UI 4.1.1 update.
Since Galaxy A52s will also receive One UI 4.1.1, will it get the Taskbark feature? Well, nothing can be clarified at the time. If the feature is designed for all Galaxy phones and not specifically for foldables or tablets, the A52s will surely obtain it.

You can disable/turn off RAM Plus feature with One UI 5.0 [Supported devices]
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.
Later last month, the South Korean tech giant started the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 update rollout. The changelog of the Samsung One UI 5.0 update mentions more options for RAM Plus, as result, you can now completely disable it in Device care if you don’t need it or don’t want it to use any storage space.
One UI 4.1 RAM Plus
After upgrading your Galaxy phones to the latest Samsung One UI 5.0 version, you will be able to completely disable the RAM Plus feature. To access the RAM Plus functionality, you need to navigate to the device Settings >> Battery and device care >> Memory >> RAM Plus.
