Samsung Galaxy S20 September 2023 update

Galaxy S20 phones were among the first Samsung devices to grab the One UI 5.1 update. So far, the new software has reached multiple users all over the world. Now Verizon is releasing the One UI 5.1 update for Samsung Galaxy S20 series phones in the US.

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S20 series phones with Android 10-based One UI 2 software in 2020. Later they grabbed the Android 11, Android 12, and Android 13 upgrades which made sure that users can enjoy the latest features.

Since the devices are eligible for three years of Android and One UI updates, the Android 13-based One UI 5.1 is the last major update for Galaxy S20. Now the customers will only get access to the security patches for a year.

The One UI 5.1 changelog is not as big as the One UI 5.0 but there is still a lot to talk about. It carries a bunch of advanced features, so many meaningful changes, and multiple improvements over the previous software.

The fresh update makes it easier for S20 Ultra customers to access Expert RAW as it adds a shortcut in the stock Camera itself. Additionally, the company adds a new Effects button on the camera screen to let the customers change the color tone of selfies.

For Gallery, the devices are getting a new Common family album that makes picture sharing easier with family or friends. It has more powerful searches to search pictures of a specific person, a convenient information display in landscape mode, improved handling, and more.

Aside from these, the company has brought a new Battery Widget to display your phone and connected devices’ battery information at a glance. The Smart suggestion widget and Weather widget are also improved with useful advancements.

The company has further made multitasking easier, add the English language to Bixby Text Call, support for continuing browsing on other devices on Samsung Internet, and much more.

There could be many professions but writing about tech is something that I've chosen and it's what I've been doing. Besides this, I like sketching, roaming, and shopping. I am a casual person and like to taste different dishes and Chinese is my favourite.

Samsung Galaxy S23 update One UI 6 Korea

In addition to South Korea and Germany, Samsung has now launched the Android 14-based One UI 6 Beta in the US. Users of carrier-unlocked or T-Mobile branded Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, or S23 Ultra smartphones can now sign up to get the Beta firmware via OTA.

It’s worth mentioning that the One UI 6 Beta is only available for T-Mobile and carrier-unlocked Galaxy S23 models in the US. This means Verizon, AT&T, US Cellular, and other carrier users have no other option than waiting for the official rollout.

One UI 6 Beta comes with a redesigned Quick Panel, which looks stunning and well-crafted for accessibility. The animations are also tweaked but require further optimization as the current situation of transition effects is not up to the mark.

But that’s not all as the Weather app has also changed, now providing a lot of additional information. Users can now get details about snowfall, moon phases and timings, atmospheric pressure, visibility distance, dew point, and wind direction directly within the app.

The inclusion of an interactive map view takes weather tracking to a whole new level. Users can easily navigate around the map, swipe to explore different areas, and tap on locations to instantly access local weather conditions.

The illustration in the weather widget and the pictures in the app present an attractive representation of the current weather conditions. The background colors dynamically change to suit different times of the day to deliver a better weather experience.
