Samsung showcased advanced customization abilities of the One UI 5.0 software system at SDC 2022. At the same time, the company teased new battery widgets that show level of all paired devices along with the phone, but, seems like, the widgets are reserved for the One UI 5.1.
Some Galaxy users have reportedly accessed the locked battery widgets through tools like Activity Launcher, which hints Samsung is working on these widgets that might be a part of the One UI 5.1. The company first teased battery widgets during the One UI 5 launch, while users now shared the interface in high resolution.
As shown in UI screenshots, the new battery widgets of One UI 5 may be available in three different layouts including a boxy, a circular, and a pill-shaped one. The boxy widget design is quite similar to the Smart Suggestions widget that arrived with the One UI 5 update.
The boxy widget has a header with text “Battery” and shows device icon, followed by device’s name, battery level bar and percentage of battery.
On the other hand, The circular widget design shows battery percentage in the outer ring and contains device icon and percentage in the center.
The last one is a pill-shaped battery widget, which looks quite similar to the pill-shaped cutout of the Galaxy S10. This widget style has device icon at the left corner, battery level bar in the center, followed by level in percentage in a numbered format.
The hidden battery widgets feature’s settings include Select device type, background color, and transparency adjustment tool. Moreover, it has an option so you can let the widget adopt dark theme, following the overall device Settings.
We are guessing that the Korean tech giant may release these new battery widgets to consumers with future software updates in November or December. If it not happens, Samsung will surely debut the new widget design with One UI 5.1 software alongside the Galaxy S23 series.
