Galaxy S23’s ‘light mode’ won’t expand to older Samsung devices with One UI 5.1 update
Samsung recently launched Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, and Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphones. All models of the Samsung Galaxy S23 series come with an attractive design, fast charging support, the latest One UI 5.1 software, and a powerful processor along with several new features, one of which is Light Mode.
The light mode feature is currently available on the Samsung Galaxy S23 series. It will available to only Galaxy Z and Galaxy S series smartphones released after Galaxy Z Flip 4, Galaxy Z Fold 4, and Galaxy S23. This means that the latest One UI 5.1 update will not extend the Light Mode feature to older Galaxy devices.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Light Mode
Galaxy S23’s Light Mode function improves heat generation and current consumption by partially adjusting the AP’s maximum processing speed. It is difficult to experience the Normal mode in normal usage environments such as surfing the Internet, SNS, making calls, and watching videos even if you use the light mode.
It does not reduce the refresh rate of the screen like power saving mode, rather the screen refresh rate remains constant when it is set, so you will not have any inconvenience in using it.
Also, Light Mode has no effect on running games instead it minimizes heat generation and uses battery efficiently.
How to enable Light Mode?
You can easily enable the Light mode feature on your eligible Galaxy devices. Just need to visit Settings >> Battery & Device Care >> Battery >> Other Battery Settings >> Select Performance by Usage Type >> Select Light Mode. You can also add Light Mode to the quick panel to easily turn it on/off it.
