Samsung has said it is improving the overall design aesthetic of smartphones while introducing a few new innovative features that make the interfaces much more private and customised with the Android 13-based One UI 5.0.
The new customisation features like lock screen customisation, enhanced colour palette, and image watermark customisation make it simpler to customise the look and feel of one's smartphone, the company said.
The latest One UI 5.0 represents Samsung's most personalised mobile experience yet, designed to give Samsung users multiple options for tailoring their devices exactly how they prefer and this starts with lock screen customisation.
Samsung has improved the lock screen customisation with One UI 5.0. Now one can change the clock size and shape, the fonts and colours. With just a few taps, users can also trim their video to transform it into live wallpaper on their phones.
Also, to help users streamline mobile tasks and activities, One UI 5.0 offers new Smart suggestions for widgets. Based on the users' usage patterns and mobile activity, Smart suggestions automatically suggest apps and actions that make the mobile experience even more personalised.
Samsung has added more backgrounds for customising the home and lock screens. Now users can use up to 16 different colour palettes taken from the wallpaper for a unified interface that makes the preferred wallpaper blend in seamlessly with the surrounding elements.
Also, with One UI 5.0, Samsung has added features for watermarking photos inside the camera app. Users can choose to display the shooting date and time, phone model information, and information specified on it. At the same time, people can choose the alignment between left, centre, and right.
One UI 5.0 update is available to the Galaxy S22 series, Z Flip 4, and Z Fold 4 and will soon be rolled out to older flagships and entry-level devices.
