Samsung Watch 5 Camera Controller zoom One UI 5.1

Samsung has begun rolling out a new software update for its Watch 5 series wearables that unlocks a couple of new features. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro are collecting the One UI 5.1 Camera Controller zoom feature with this update.

Galaxy Watch 5 already lets users control their phone’s camera to capture images. Whereas, with the implementation of the new Camera Controller zoom, Galaxy smartphone users can even manage the camera zoom remotely by pinching in or out the watch’s screen or through the rotating bezel.

Do note that the company clearly mentions that the Camera Controller zoom feature is only supported on flagship models released after Samsung Galaxy S20 or Galaxy Z Flip running at least One UI 5.1 software, which means you will not be able to access it right now.

In addition to this, the latest update further brings a new “Connected device diagnostics” option so that you can check the proper performance of your Galaxy Watch’s battery status, touch screen function, and more on the connected phone.

In order to get access to the Connected device diagnostics feature, you need to update Samsung Members and Galaxy Wearable apps to the latest versions on your Galaxy smartphone.

Aside from these significant additions, the company is also improving the stability ad reliability of your watch so that you can have a seamless user experience. Moreover, you can identify this software on your Galaxy Watch 5 or Galaxy Watch 5 Pro through the One UI built version ending with AWA3.

Meanwhile, to download it, navigate to Galaxy wearable app on a connected Android phone and navigate to Watch settings >> Watch software update. On the Home tab, go to Watch software update >> Download and install.

Galaxy S23 is a big upgrade, but Samsung skips seamless Android updates yet again

Samsung Galaxy S23 Lavender

Samsung’s latest Galaxy S23 series has everything for today’s needs including the fastest processor, the latest software system out of the box, and long updates support. With the Galaxy S23 series, Samsung skipped bringing the seamless Android updates feature, which was highly awaited.

According to AndroidPolice, the Galaxy S23 Ultra (naturally others too) doesn’t support the seamless Android updates feature after all. To verify it, the source managed to run the Treble Info tool, which confirmed Samsung has not enabled the seamless updates feature.

It is surprising that Samsung has not adopted the seamless Android updates support for the Galaxy S23 series. In an interview last year, the One UI department head confirmed that the company is working to bring seamless updates to Galaxy, which could be possible with One UI 6.

In the recent past, it was reported that the Android maker (Google) is working to make it mandatory for smartphone vendors to bring support for seamless updates. Samsung is best in terms of Android software updates, matching Apple’s dominance. Still, the company is missing this important feature, which became common nowadays.

No one is unaware of Google and Samsung’s sweet friendship, but the lack of such as great feature forces us to scratch our heads. With seamless updates, smartphones install new firmware updates in a second virtual partition to reduce downtime.

Smartphones like Google Pixel support seamless Android updates feature, letting you continue to use the device during the installation of software. Instead of going into a long downtime, seamless updates help phones to install the software to a second partition while you continue to use the main one.

As soon as the installation completes in the second partition, you are just required to reboot it for a few seconds to merge the new incremental software. We hope the Samsung flagship coming in the next half would eventually bring the seamless updates feature.

Maintenance mode is basically the feature of Android 13-based One UI 5.0 software. Both of these phones grabbed the update in the latest 2022 but due to some reasons, the company did not install Maintenance mode at that time.
