One UI 7.0 is the next version of Samsung‘s custom skin and it has been making waves with several leaked features surfacing online. The Korean tech giant has now officially unveiled exciting new features for One UI 7.0, as confirmed by a Theme Park Developer.

Samsung is working on new features related to icon themes, which will give users more control over their device customization. The new Theme Park features are set to debut with One UI 7.0 to enhance the overall Galaxy experience.

According to the developer, the One UI 7.0 update will bring two new features support. One of them is the ability to customize both folder and app button icons with gallery images. It allows users to decorate their phone screens with images that show their style and interests.

Another one is the option to directly customize the shape of icons. Currently, there are 11 presets but the company will expand it to choose from a broader range of shapes to match their preferences. This customization extends to both folders and app buttons.

Samsung One UI 7 Gallery icon may look this bad



Samsung Galaxy A55 July 2024 update Brazil

Samsung One UI 7 may adopt a bad-looking icon for Galaxy’s native Gallery app. The company is rumored to introduce redesigned app icons with the next One UI version. Meanwhile, an alleged Gallery app icon appeared online that looks bad.

Tipster Chunvn8888 posted the alleged One UI 7 Gallery app icon’s image. The new icon features a solid White background with six leaves of different colors. It’s a complete revamp from the current design that has a solid purplish-red color with White leaves.

The icon apparently lacks a dynamic appearance such as a 3D effect or shadow. The arrangement of leaves also looks odd, with six different colors that don’t give it a pleasing feel. As the work is still underway, there might be changes in icon-making.

The image is shared by a tipster in his X post, which could be untrue but it isn’t very likely. If Samsung brings this bad-looking Gallery icon, it could have to replace it with a new one as most of the users have the same opinion with its design.

The same source previously revealed that One UI will have a new notification panel. Swipe down from the screen’s upper right will open Quick Settings while the upper left corner will expand the Notification panel.

One UI 7 Update

Samsung could start the One UI 7 Beta Program next month. Recent flagship and select mid-range phones will be eligible for the testing activity. The recently launched foldable smartphones will also be invited for the testing activity.

Stable One UI 7 will start rolling out to compatible models later this year. The official rollout may commence after the October 3rd – Samsung Developer Conference. Android 15 update will be widely available on Samsung devices by the end of the year.

In the initial run, One UI 7 will roll out to the Galaxy S24 series. Later on, Samsung will gradually expand the update to the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6 users. Older models will also join the party with the latest One UI version by November this year.
