Samsung is all set to introduce the new One UI 5.1 software with the Galaxy S23 series on February 1. Ahead of this, the company is internally experimenting with the new version on various Galaxy smartphones. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S21 FE 5G is the latest Samsung smartphone that has begun testing the One UI 5.1 software so that users won’t face unstable features after installing it.
As spotted by the CheckFirm application, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE smartphone is testing One UI 5.1 update with build version G990BXXU2EWA8. The testing is currently underway in European markets as the CSC code revealed through the app is “EUX” which belongs to Europe.
Other than this, the CheckFirm app does not reveal anything about the update nor it mentions when the internal testing will be completed and the company will release the update for the customers. However, since the testing is already underway, we can expect an early update.
I am eagerly waiting for Galaxy S21 FE’s One UI 5.1 upgrade:
I use Samsung’s Galaxy S21 FE smartphone as my daily driver. Its first major upgrade – Android 13-based One UI 5.1 truly made my phone awesome. Now as the One 5.1 software is coming, I am eagerly waiting for this update to be available for my S21 FE so that I can get hands-on with more advanced features.
What I am most looking forward to is the Bixby text call feature in the English language that will allow users to find out who’s calling and why before answering the call. This feature is currently limited to the Korean language but Samsung said to add more language support with One UI 5.1.
Aside from this, Samsung will re-install the Multi-user feature for Galaxy devices. It will bring new changes to the Color Palette, add new Battery Widgets, and much more.

Samsung introduces Multi Control feature with One UI 5.1, are you ready?
One UI 5.1 is official, thanks to Samsung’s new Galaxy S23 smartphone lineup. Since the update is yet to release for older Galaxy devices, we are closely exploring all the awaited features. It’s clear that Samsung will roll out the Multi Control feature with One UI 5.1 for Galaxy phones.
As showcased during the Unpacked, the Samsung Multi Control feature allows you to control your Galaxy smartphone, Galaxy Tablets, and Galaxy Book PC directly from the Galaxy Book3 series’ keyboard and trackpad. This capability enables you to copy, paste, or drag and drop between devices.
Benefits of Multi Control
Samsung usually brings additional benefits to connected experiences across the Galaxy S lineup of smartphones. The new Multi Control feature connects mouse and keyboard functionality between a Samsung Galaxy PC and tablet to serve ultimate flexibility between devices.
Besides this, enhanced text usability makes it easy to copy and paste text, like URLs, from one device (smartphone) to another (Tab / PC) to pick up activity on another device. There are more new features in the One UI 5.1 software, check them out right here.
To use the Samsung Multi Control feature, your Galaxy smartphone needs to run the latest One UI 5.1 software. However, consumers having Galaxy Tab running One UI 4.1 or later and Galaxy Book launched in 2021 and later can also enjoy the Multi Control.
Notably, Galaxy users are required to sign in with the same Samsung Account on both phones and PC. There are fewer chances of the expansion of this feature to non-Samsung laptops. Hence, you are lucky if owned a Galaxy Book as Samsung is greatly enhancing the ecosystem.
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.
