Power Saving Mode

With Power Saving Mode, Galaxy SmartTag2’s battery now lasts up to 700 days, more than twice as long as previous Galaxy SmartTag models. Even in Normal Mode, battery life is now extended up to 500 days, a 50% increase on previous models.

Sleek Design

Galaxy SmartTag2’s new compact size and ring-shaped design was created for ease. The large metal loop enhances product durability by using metal on the inside of the ring for greater resilience that can support accessories such as clips and keyrings. These accessories can also be attached to bags and luggage.

  1. Galaxy SmartTag2 retains many of the popular features from Galaxy SmartTag and Galaxy SmartTag+ including both Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and UWB capabilities.
  2. Users can also leverage Augmented Reality (AR) Find technology to visually guide themselves toward their item using their Samsung Galaxy smartphone camera.
  3. In addition, Galaxy SmartTag2 works within maximum Bluetooth range of 120 meters and can control smart home appliances through the SmartThings app.

Source: One UI 7 Beta arriving next week, leaked changes aren’t final

Samsung One UI 7

Samsung could start One UI 7 Beta next week. Tipster chunvn8888 leaked a lot of things about the next big Galaxy update. However, a credible source IceUniverse revealed that the rumored changes of One UI 7 may still be modified in Beta activity.

Ice believes that the changes arriving in One UI 7 are still relatively simple. We’ve seen leaked images of Gallery, Camera, and Weather app icons. The homescreen customization options have also floated online, promising a big redesign.

The tipster says that icons and visible changes are in the Developer testing phase. The company may still change the user interface elements in Beta. UI components can’t be considered final until the release of the fourth or fifth Beta update.

Notably, the leaker who posted screenshots of One UI 7 also noted that these changes were deployed in the past week only. There were no such changes in Samsung’s upcoming One UI version around the period of the Galaxy Unpacked event held in Paris.

One UI 7 – Leaked changes

Samsung has revamped the Camera app, giving it a fresh new icon and UI changes. The camera user interface is optimized for one-handed use. All the options and camera mode sliders are aligned to the bottom of the screen for easier accessibility.

For the homescreen, One UI 7 could allow you to remove labels from apps and widgets. One UI Home app may add a new toggle entitled “Bold.” When enabled, it will enlarge the app icons and widgets by removing labels.

Weather and Gallery app icons are also getting refreshed. We guess the company may have been preparing a complete set of renovated icons for stock apps. The Weather icon adopted a lighter gradient, while the Gallery icon added leaves on a White background.

Samsung Galaxy S24 series could be the first to get One UI 7 Beta update. The company is expected to announce the program first in South Korea. It will ultimately be available in China, Germany, India, Poland, the UK, and the US as well.

Samsung One UI 7 homescreen to get iOS 18 makeover [Image]

Samsung Customization Service July 2024 update

One UI 7 could add a new homescreen icon and widget style page in Settings. This will allow Samsung smartphone users to customize the homescreen layout. The new option would bring an iOS-inspired appearance to Galaxy devices.

X tipster chunvn8888 leaked another screenshot of the alleged One UI 7 version. The image shows the Icon and widget style layout page. It has two options to choose from, letting Galaxy users replace the current layout with an iOS-like design.

The page will have Classic and Bold options for homescreen Icons and Widgets. The company seemingly updated the One UI Home app with new options. Using these options, you can decide the appearance of apps and widgets on your Galaxy’s homescreen.

Classic keeps the current homescreen layout while the Bold turns it to iOS. When enabled, the Bold option will enlarge app icons and widgets. The size will increase in favor of ditching labels from apps and widgets, ultimately turning to iOS homescreen.

Samsung One UI 7 Homescreen Layout

Currently, there’s no such page in the One UI 6.1 to alter the layout. Notably, Chinese vendors offer heavy customization options for homescreen. Meanwhile, Samsung is taking a page from Apple’s iOS 18 book for its next big One UI upgrade.

By removing labels, Galaxy users could experience a cleaner homescreen. There are some minor glitches in the app or widget labels in One UI. Larger names of apps are also concerning as they fail to optimize in a single line to match with others.

Samsung should have explored beyond what’s available in Apple’s iOS. OnePlus and Oppo offer the ability to change app icon shapes, remove labels, and bring dynamic colors to icons. Removing labels and enlarging element size isn’t a breakthrough.

Well, the image is just a leaked input from a credible source. We will have our hands on the upcoming Samsung software when it launches in Public Beta. Till then, enjoy having a sneak peek reading possible changes in One UI 7.
