Features Wishlist [Updated Jan. 15]

1. Battery Widgets

During the showcase event of One UI 5.0, Samsung teased new battery widgets, which didn’t come with the Stable Android 13 update so far. The new widgets are quite similar to the ones we can see in iOS and Stock Android, containing battery status of all connected devices including watch, and buds.

  • We guess those new widgets will be available for consumers with the One UI 5.1 update.

2. Multi-user profiles

Samsung enabled multi-user profiles features during the One UI 5 Beta testing for Galaxy S22 series. Due to unknown reasons, the company later announced that the multi-user feature won’t be accessible in next Beta, followed by the Stable build.

3. User interface

One UI 5.0 update is all about new customization options and tools for Galaxy devices. Since the update is widely available for Galaxy consumers, it doesn’t come with noticeable changes in the user interface. The company impressively tweaked the stock app icons, but, other key elements remain the same as One UI 4.1.

Before the One UI 6, Samsung should bring some changes to its traditional quick settings, notification panel, and volume adjustment UI sections with the next One UI 5.1 build. The chances of major UI changes are quite low, still we hope, Samsung may bring some cosmetic changes.

4. Camera features

The Galaxy S23 Ultra reportedly uses a 200MP primary camera sensor, and Samsung developed 12.5MP, 50MP and 200MP camera modes for photography. In some cases, the Samsung Camera app lags behind Google Camera, which should be fixed with the One UI 5.1.

Astrophotography on Galaxy is possible on Galaxy S22 series, thanks to the Expert RAW camera app. However, the availability of this app is limited, which disappoints consumers of Galaxy S21, Note 20 and S20 series smartphones. The company should bring some notable advancements to the Stock Camera app.

5. System improvements

The South Korean tech giant impressively deployed the Android 13 update for Galaxy devices, and the rollout is likely to finish before the year ends. Still, the One UI 5.0 software needs some optimization with Galaxy hardware and the Android operating system.

Material You Dynamic Theming still works better on Pixel devices, while the system animations and visual effects can be further improved with the One UI 5.1. Pixel Feature Drop updates brought a lot of new features such as Clear Calling, therefore, Samsung users want better treatment from the vendor.

Samsung ushers Advanced 3D Package tech that’s rocking the world



Samsung 3D Advanced Chip Package

In the past, semiconductor firms including Samsung have developed products focusing on how much smaller and more transistors can be integrated into a chip of the same size. Earlier, “Gordon Moore” predicted that ‘the density of semiconductors doubles every 24 months’, and this is the well-known “Moore’s Law.”

‘Moore’s Law’ has changed little by little following the speed of semiconductor technology development, but has been followed for more than 50 years. As the era of smartphones, mobile Internet, AI, and Big Data has arrived, the required computing power is rapidly increasing.

Since the pace of progress and innovation in semiconductor technology has slowed, the miniaturization of semiconductor processes has reached its physical limit, so the rate of increase in integration has slowed. In other words, ‘Moore’s Law’ is approaching its limit.

Samsung’s “Beyond Moore” approach

Industry wants a versatile semiconductor that integrates various functions into one. As the process is miniaturized, there is a problem that analog performance deteriorates, and it is true that it is difficult to efficiently respond to these demands only with process miniaturization based on Moore’s Law.

Through advanced Heterogeneous Integration technology that connects multiple semiconductors horizontally and vertically, it is possible to integrate more transistors in a smaller semiconductor package, and a more powerful performance that surpasses the performance of each. can provide.

Research institutes show that the high-tech package market is expected to record high growth at a CAGR of 9.6% from 2021 to 2027. Particularly, 2.5D and 3D packages using heterogeneous integration technology are expected to grow by more than 14% annually.

At this event, Samsung The Wall was used to provide participants with a high-resolution and large-scale immersive viewing experience, maximizing the visual effect at the moment the vehicle was unveiled.

The highlight of the event was, of course, the unveiling of the limited edition ‘ 911 Carrera Panamericana Special’, launched to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the Porsche sports car.

The video showing the process from the first Porsche model that successfully completed the legendary 1952 “Panamericana Mexico” racing competition to the present left a deep impression on the participants.

Samsung Porsche The Wall

The video was screened on The Wall’s all-in-one super-large screen, and the story commemorating Porsche’s historic achievements in traditional long-distance endurance races over several days was evaluated to have been further enhanced with the lively colors of The Wall.

“For Samsung, it has been an honor to partner with Porsche in creating this event which showcases the highest quality image technology available in the Mexican market,” said Ana Laura Lira, director of B2B sales at Samsung Electronics Mexico.

Know Samsung’s The Wall

The Wall can be installed in a modular form, so it can be placed in any design you want regardless of shape, proportion, or size. In addition, The Wall at this event provided a highly immersive experience by eliminating the boundary between the screen and the wall through a near-zero bezel.

The Wall boasts a high standard not only in size but also in terms of image quality. The “Neural Quantum Processor” installed in The Wall analyzes, optimizes, and displays images, and the “Black Seal” technology controls the contrast ratio and details to express a near-perfect black color.

Moreover, Samsung’s premium display is packed with “Ultra Chroma” technology to enable intense and natural color production, and the narrower color wavelength implements more accurate colors than existing LED displays, providing a realistic viewing experience.
