Samsung One UI 6.0 could make Task Killer apps useless



Samsung One UI 6.0 Task Killer

Yesterday, Google released the Android 14 Developer Preview 2 to Pixel devices. The 2nd development build suggests that Samsung could make Task Killer apps useless with the One UI 6.0 update this year.

According to the information, Google is preparing to severely limit the functionality of apps that claim to make your phone faster by killing background tasks, starting with the upcoming Android 14 OS.

As smartphones are now being shipped with more RAM and internal storage along with faster chipsets and in-built multitasking abilities, Google appears to end the existence of task-killer apps with Android 14.

Apps shouldn’t use the killBackgroundProcesses API or otherwise attempt to influence the process lifecycle of other apps, even on older OS versions. Android is designed to keep cached apps in the background and kill them automatically when the system needs memory. If your app kills other apps unnecessarily, it can reduce system performance and increase battery consumption by requiring full restarts of those apps later, which takes significantly more resources than resuming an existing cached app.

Android 14 DP2 update restricts access to a certain API that has been used by these task-killer apps to kill all background processes for a certain app, which Samsung could follow in One UI 6.0.

Task Killer app can boost your phone’s speed and performance for a short period of time by stopping running apps and services. However, you feel that your phone arrives back at the laggy stage just after a 5-minute gap.

Google says, “It isn’t possible for a 3rd-party application to improve the memory, power, or thermal behavior of an Android device. You should ensure that your app is compliant with Google Play’s policy against misleading claims.”

One UI 6.0

Samsung will hopefully introduce the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 version later this year. The company could start the Public Beta for Galaxy devices sometime before the official release of Android 14, followed by a Stable release likely in October 2023.

One UI 6.0: The ultimate features wishlist for Samsung users



Samsung Android One UI

One UI 6.0 features will reveal throughout the Beta testing, expected to start in August this year, while our wishlist consists of all the features we want Samsung to bring with its Android 14 update this year.

Google kicked off the Android 14 Developer Preview in February and the final release will hopefully happen by August. Samsung has neither joined Google in Preview nor it’s going to be a part of Android 14’s Public Beta testing.

Samsung is expected to release the first One UI 6.0 Beta by August, which will reveal the user interface and features as well. Since there’s a long gap between March and August, we will continue to gather inputs on what could come.

Samsung One UI 6.0 Features Wishlist

Samsung One UI 6.0 Features Wishlist

Here’s our wishlist of One UI 6.0 features:

Seamless Updates [A/B Partition]

It has been a long time since Galaxy consumers are demanding the seamless updates feature. Google Pixel phones adopted this tech years ago, which radically reduces the shutdown time while installing firmware updates. Hopefully, Galaxy devices will get support for seamless updates or the S24 series.

Redesigned user interface elements

The original One UI version was first launched in 2019 and the company introduced a total of five generations excluding point versions. Eye-catching user interface plays a key role in user experience but Samsung seems to be only focussing on refinements, which should change with One UI 6.

Pixel Dynamic Colors

Themed Icons and even the Color Palette feature don’t look appropriate on Galaxy devices. Samsung needs to make significant changes in this aspect as most of the users are not satisfied with One UI’s Material You version. Pay attention, Pixel comes with way better Material You integration than the Galaxy.

Refined animations and visual effects

The Korean tech giant brought new visual effects and improved animations with the One UI 5.0. But when compared to Apple iOS, it appears Samsung is far behind in optimization. Flagship phones undoubtedly offer great animations but Apple manages to offer the same experience on all models.

One UI Boot animation

Samsung is the world’s biggest smartphone vendor and the biggest spreader of Android operating system. With the One UI 5.1, it has added One UI animation which appears at the time of app optimization. However, Samsung One UI 6.0 should bring One UI’s native boot animation to Galaxy devices.

Tabular icons and large folder

MIUI 14 introduces tabular icons and large folder features (via RPRNA) as part of renovating the home screen experience. Large folders became part of almost every Android skin developed by China-based vendors, however, the tabular icons are a step ahead. Samsung should consider bringing such kind of home screen tweaks.

Multi user profiles

Multi-user profiles feature was sadly ditched from the One UI 5.0 due to unknown reasons. We hoped One UI 5.1 could bring back the function but it didn’t happen. There’s no input on why the company is not bringing this useful feature to Galaxy devices, and we hope it will come back with One UI 6.0

Native app lock

Norton app lock has over 5 million installations on Google Play Store and most of the users are from Samsung and Google. Chinese ROMs such as MIUI bring a native app lock feature in order to allow users to give another protection shield on certain apps to share the phone with others hassle-free.

Leaving Google aside, One UI 6.0 should include the native app lock feature so users won’t have to get any third-party applications from app markets. Secure folder works pretty well, but an app lock’s usability is far away from this limited function.

Passkeys for native apps

Dashlane confirmed that its native app will get passkeys support following the final release of Android 14. Since the One UI 6.0 will be based on Android 14, we hope, Samsung won’t leave this feature behind or keep limited to flagship devices or certain models.

Emoji wallpaper generator

Android 14 DP2 brings an excellent new feature, allowing Pixel users to create wallpaper based on emojis. There’s a new emoji lab added in the native wallpaper section, where user can pick up their preferred emojis and combine them in an image background to create wallpaper. One UI 6.0 should bring this feature to Samsung phones.

Super low battery alert

Android 14 adds a new battery low alert which prompts users when the phone has just 2% battery left. One UI 6.0 should also bring this feature so users can stop using the phone and get a few minutes to plug in the charger.

Video Remaster

One UI 5.1 expands the usability of One UI’s Remaster feature with support for GIF files. We now want Samsung to bring support for Video Remaster with the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 firmware.

Improved Nightography

Google is working on the development of an improved Night Sight feature for the Pixel 8 Pro smartphone, with multi-camera sensors support. As rivals are now focussing on nighttime photography, Samsung One UI 6.0 should bring improvements to its epic Nightography feature.

We will continue to add more features to our wishlist. If you have your own expectations with One UI 6, feel free to share them with us through the details given below.

One UI 6.0 to alert you mins before dying smartphone battery



Galaxy S22 Ultra 5000mAh battery

Android 14 development is underway and Google released the second Developer Preview build in on March 8th. Samsung’s One UI 6.0 software will be based on the Android 14 OS, which could introduce a new battery alert feature for user convenience.

Follow our socials → Google News, Telegram, Twitter, Facebook

According to the information, Android 14 has a new battery alert feature, which notifies Pixel smartphone users that their smartphone’s battery is about to die. Samsung may also bring this new battery alert feature to Galaxy devices with the upcoming One UI 6.0 iteration.

As shown in the UI screenshot, the OS pushes a notice on the screen/notification panel, informing the user that just 2% battery is remaining in the device. If you are a heavy smartphone user or often see the situation of the battery dies, you’ll see a “Very low battery” notification when you have just 2% battery life left.

One UI 6.0 Battery Alert

At present, Android smartphones running v13 get notified when the battery level is at both 20% and 10%. The OS also recommends you turn on the Battery Saver and Extreme Battery Saver features to get some time to plug in the charger.

Currently, this new battery alert feature is available on Google Pixel smartphones running Android 14 Developer Preview 2. Hopefully, the South Korean tech giant may not skip bringing this minor yet useful addition with its next One UI iteration.

One UI 6 Availability

Various Samsung devices are eligible for Android 14, while some have ended their major OS upgrades support with the Android 13 OS. The Galaxy S21, S22, and S23 series will get Android 14-based One UI 6.0. Sadly, the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20 series won’t receive Android 14-based One UI 6.0 firmware.

Samsung One UI 6.0 should bring Video Remaster feature



Samsung Video Remaster

Ahead of unveiling Pixel 8 series, Google is preparing to bring a new Video Unblur feature to its native Photos app. Since Samsung already has Remaster feature for Image and GIF files, the One UI 6.0 should introduce a Video Remaster feature to take on Google.

Samsung’s Android 14 update would bring the One UI 6.0 software to Galaxy devices later this year. During the Beta test expected between August and October, the company will test new features and improvements derived from the new operating system.

No doubt, the South Korean tech giant takes care of consumers’ feedback and applies necessary suggestions intro mobile and software departments. That said, Samsung should bring a new Video Remaster feature with its new One UI 6.0 iteration.

Google debuted the Photo Unblur feature with the Pixel 7 smartphone lineup last year. For the next-gen flagships, the company seems to be preparing a more advanced feature called Video Unblur. Since the feature entered the internal testing phase, Google would surely bring it to the consumers.

Video Unblur

Google and Samsung jointly working on the development of the Tensor G3 chipset, which just rumored to be a modified version of the Exynos 2300. The Tensor G2 features excellent machine-learning capabilities, which enables features like Photo Unblur.

As Photo Unblur is exclusively available on the Pixel 7 series, Google is reportedly working to finalize the Video Unblur function, which could debut with the Pixel 8 series later this year. Through an APK teardown, 9to5Google managed to achieve the Video Unblur user interface in the Photos app.

Samsung is already ahead of Google as the GIF Remaster feature is the most recent example. The One UI’s Remaster feature is capable of upscaling tiny clips, and we don’t think the company will face any issues expanding this feature to the Video files as well.

The South Korean tech giant usually adapts the new Android OS and delivers it to Galaxy devices in the fourth quarter of every year. Moving ahead, the One UI 6.1 iteration might debut intelligent new features to enhance user experience on Galaxy.
