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 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.

Samsung One UI animation to evolve with Galaxy S25 Ultra: Source

Samsung Galaxy S25 Ultra could bring One UI animation evolution. Tipster IceUniverse highlights that the design changes of the next Ultra will benefit One UI’s animation aspect. It signals radical enhancements with the next iteration of Galaxy skin.

According to the info, the rounded corners of the Samsung Galaxy S25 Ultra will make One UI animation more natural. The current Ultra models have angular corners on both the phone’s display/frame and software rendering across the screen.

The tipster specifically talked about animation fluency while opening and closing apps. The icons in One UI are squircle (a shape between a square and a circle). Given angular corners, the icon’s fluency appears unnatural, but it will be changed soon.

Since the S25 Ultra is rumored to have rounded edges, the icons will be reworked too. The company may introduce an even more optimized fluency for app opening and closing animation. A similar screen edge and icon shape will result in natural animation rendering.

The input is based on natural software improvements based on hardware/shape changes. As the One UI version goes up, Samsung raises principal changes to the software. We expect all Galaxy devices will benefit from the changes are in Samsung’s pipeline.

Former Mercedes designer is leading Samsung’s design division. The Galaxy Watch Ultra is designed under the leadership of Hubert H. Lee. The company is expected to introduce its next-gen Galaxy design language with the Galaxy S25 series next year.

We haven’t heard anything about the Galaxy S25 and S25 Plus design changes. Meanwhile, the Ultra variant is said to ditch the boxy design. The new design could be inspired by the Galaxy Note 7 with a frame aimed to be designed with easier handling.

Galaxy S25 series would debut One UI 7.1 software based on Android 15. The Korean tech giant will first bring One UI 7 to its current flagship and other eligible devices. The Beta Program is likely to be kicked off by the end of next month.
