Seeing the company’s habit, we believe, the One UI 5.1.1 software may also focus on enhancing the usability of foldable phones and tablets. The vendor is also focussing on the premium tablet range as people continue to prefer Galaxy tablets in the Android segment.

With One UI 5.1.1, Samsung should further improve the interaction experience with Galaxy devices. It should bring new visual effects to offer an even more natural feel while switching across apps, using the multi-window, split screen, and one-handed mode.

Android 12-based One UI 4.1.1 version also focussed on enhancing the user experience on large-screen devices. This firmware update brought features like Taskbar, enhanced split screen, app pair in the taskbar, improved control window, as well as Extract text to copy content from images.

One UI 3.1.1

In April 2021, Samsung introduced the Android 13-based One UI 3.1.1 software iteration with the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Flip3 devices.

Fold 4 Keyboard issue One UI 6.1

Owners of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 have encountered an issue with applying custom keyboard themes. The selected themes are not fully applied, showing incomplete customization. This issue was brought to attention through a Reddit post, where a user expressed difficulty in applying the blue theme to their keyboard.

A Reddit user reported that despite selecting their preferred theme, the blue theme, only some parts of the keyboard reflect the change and leave the rest in default or bright color.

In response, a community moderator stated that the Theme Park keyboard theme does not apply properly when the color palette feature is active. This has been identified as a software issue within the current UI.

Samsung has acknowledged the Keyboard customization issue and confirmed that the One UI 6.1 update will resolve this issue, scheduled to be released early next month.

Until the release of the One UI 6.1 update, the moderator recommends disabling the color palette to allow the themes to apply correctly. This temporary solution will enable users to enjoy their chosen keyboard themes without error.
