Preview: Galaxy S22 with Android 13 and One UI 5
As previously, we have heard rumours that Samsung would start the Android 13 beta for its Galaxy S22 anticipatedly earlier in the year. Now it’s quite interesting to see Samsung has launched its beta and that too before the release of the Android 13 source code. Android 13 is now predicted to have next month alongside the Pixel 7 phones or maybe sooner than that. As mentioned above, Samsung has been very good with getting updates released in a timely manner, and it reflects well indication for their future devices and support. Therefore, now we can expect more from the new One UI 5 updates in the next coming days.
More refined design
The first and foremost thing is that things are not stand out at first instant, although apparently, they have more when you start diving into them. One of the major examples is that the overall design has been more refined now.
Permission & Dialog box enhancement
However, on the Homescreen you rather find any major chunks but if any apps ask for your permission then the dialogue box is graphically enhanced perhaps. And the same going implies to the notifications on the notification screen. Coming to the smart widget is again considerably giving a way to more general function. Adding widgets of the same size on top of each other is more smooth now, and swipe back and forth between them.
Much more handy features are now directly accessible from the Gallery itself, part of which is the recognition of text instantly from photos. It makes it very easy to copy the text from any of the images and other apps or text files. In addition to this, now there are now more quick setting options that allow you to easily adjust the screen display in terms of colours and contrast as per your need. Also, the colour palette become more enhanced now providing more colour options based on your wallpaper.
Noticeably the old menus Biometrics and Security & Privacy have been merged now under the Security and privacy heading. And there you find ample new options for quick settings and checks. Now with the help of this, you can run a check which at a glance whether your Galaxy S22 is safe on the most important points.
Pop-up & Split-screen feature
Moving further, under the Labs heading Settings: Advanced functions – Here you will find two new gestures. Swipe for a pop-up view and a Split-screen swipe which lets you multitask faster. Especially on a large phone, this function works really very well.
Taking a screenshot and pasting it immediately somewhere is very easy now as it gives you with the option of doing the same instantly.
Although in this first beta version, regarding the camera app there are not much of enhancements done all across and maybe that can be taken place later. So anybody at first glance, not finding anything much in store.
First conclusions Android 13 on the Galaxy S22
It is quite certain that the first version of Android 13 and One UI 5 on the Galaxy S22 don’t make you feel that you got a new phone after the upgrade. So for a die-heart updater waiting eagerly, this may be quite a pity, but it has been noticed that the majority of the crowd prefers to keep everything as it was before. Particularly in this regard, Samsung is well aware of the fact that the majority of its users prefer consistency.
Also, in this way Samsung has chosen a logical way, for doing refinement in areas such as security and the refinement of functions for an upgrade such as that to One UI 5.
Also, factors like speed, battery life and optimization are quite important. However, since it’s the first beta version of the software, we can’t expect much at this point. And precisely for that we really have to wait until its official release which defiantly has to add a substantial upgrade later this year.
