Samsung has released a public beta for One UI 5 in Germany, the United States, and South Korea. The beta version is only available for Galaxy S22 devices at the moment and includes some new features such as more color options, stackable widgets, and a security dashboard.
Samsung has included the new features of One UI 5 In a blog post. It states that users will see more color options to further customize the interface. It will also be possible to place widgets of the same size on top of each other, after which you can scroll through the stack.
Samsung has also made it possible in One UI 5 to block notifications from apps more easily. The settings menu for sound and phone vibration has been fixed and One UI 5 users can now set a different language for each app. When you open the Camera app, there will be a new icon for Pro mode, as well as for Pro Video mode. Zooming in should be easier from now on because the zoom bar in the camera app has become more sensitive.
There will also be a new dashboard that will display security notifications, as well as actions that can be taken if necessary. Samsung also introduces new accessibility features such as a magnifying glass function and voice guidance when navigating.
The open beta version is currently only launched for Galaxy S22 devices in Germany, the United States, and South Korea. According to the company, users from other continents will be following in a few months. Last month, communications journalist Max Weinbach shared New screenshots for One UI 5. This shows, among other things, that the South Korean company is working on new gestures to use multitasking and that notifications are getting new and larger icons.
