Samsung has recently launched its Samsung Developer Conference 2023 (SDC23) and made some significant announcements. The most notable one is the reveal of One UI 6, which is the latest version of the software its phones run. Even though the beta version of the software has already been out, Samsung has now officially announced the next iteration, sharing some insights into what we can expect.
One UI 6, which is based on Android 14, focuses on improving usability and introducing smarter photo and video editing capabilities. Among the new features is a revamped Quick panel and app interface, as well as a new typeface – One UI Sans. The Gallery app now has AI features like Photo Remaster and Object Eraser. Another new addition is the Samsung Studio multi-layer video editor, which allows users to add text, stickers, and music to a video timeline.
You can multitask with a pop-up window, position the lock screen clock freely, and enjoy simplified app icon labels. The Weather app has a new widget and interactive map view, while the camera has more alignment options, filters, and effects.
There are also improvements to Calendar, Reminder, and Samsung Internet, as well as smarter Airplane mode and recommendations in the My Files app. The Auto Blocker adds an extra layer of protection, and you can customise Bixby text call greetings. More accessibility features include new magnification and cursor thickness options.
Samsung has released the One UI 6 beta program for Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5. Based on Android 14, it was previously available only for S-series flagships. To enrol, open the Samsung Members app and look for a banner at the top.
