Now move to the One UI 5 Beta features:
The latest upcoming firmware will include so many features apart from brand new UI, notifications tweak, multitasking gesture, permission window, security and privacy improvements, and Text recognition.
Here we can say that improvements to One UI 5 notifications are not major ones, but here Samsung has really performed to give us a user-friendly yet more effective notification panel.
However, in contrast to One UI 4, the notification design is slightly tweaked. Altogether with a new icon along with an updated design style. Apart from this, the notification shade and quick settings have a slight modification toward opacity. While considering these changes minor still they do bring an overall different feel to the notification shade as a whole.
This update will be supposed to improve the buffer of Samsung users that Samsung One UI 5 is about to make an update in its permission dialogue system and bring in the default Android style. The dialogue seems like a stock Android dialogue. Although the text on the permission dialogue is bold and large now, which clearly emerges from the background shade of the dialogues.
Similarly to the Google lens and iPhone which can take text from the photo and turn up it into copy and paste the same, now it is been rumour that sounds Samsung also building the same into the One UI 5 as well.
The Gallery app in One UI 5 is able to scan the images with the help of a new button present at the bottom of the screen and with which your phone analyse the text and then immediately turns them into text that you can copy and paste anywhere wherever you want. This makes the text to be copying and pasting really easy on another app which could work just like an iPhone.
However, the same can do with the help of Samsung Bixby vision and a bunch of other ways but now that can be done inside the gallery app.
Security & Privacy
Coming to the other changes that One UI 5 has about to bring and that on its way to experience. As we all know that Google is working hard to enhance the privacy and security of its pixel devices. Now Samsung competes with it through its One UI security and privacy upgrades.
Just like in Pixel phones which us a warning when something is wrong on the top of the screen and big green looks good if things are okay, also there is an option to scan if something goes wrong. Although it’s not clear how it works and might look in One UI 5 yet.
One UI 5 also adds two new gestures for triggering multitasking features which makes it faster to access multiple apps at once. One of the new gestures adds the two-finger swipe from the bottom of the screen to change to a split screen view. Also based on the app, it split the screen, and at the bottom, it looks like Apple’s flex drop but instead of a floating window Samsung is opening the app on a split screen.
On top of that, there’s a new corner gesture, through which you can swipe at the corner to make the current app change to a pop-up view where the app sits on its own window. It really makes the user do more customization.
