Samsung unveils new One UI 3 shell
Samsung has announced the launch of an update of its devices to the new proprietary firmware One UI 3. The user interface has received a number of innovations, redesigns, and the ability to flexibly customize to user preferences. The firmware will be distributed for all gadgets of the company running Android 11.
The first wave of devices for which the One UI 3 interface became available included the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra models sold in South Korea and Europe. Then the update will be available in other regions, as well as for owners of smartphones Galaxy Note20, Z Fold 2, Z Flip, Note10, Fold, and S10. The company also announced the availability of firmware for the Galaxy A series of smartphones in the first half of 2021.
The developers have optimized the lock screen, quick access bar, and home screen for instant access to frequently used information. The lock screen widget bar has also been redesigned. All system animations and visuals are smoother.
With One UI 3, the camera's capabilities have also expanded. The system features improved AI-based zoom, as well as improved autofocus and autoexposure. In addition, organizing by category in the gallery will allow you to quickly find photos: swiping up the screen while viewing an image will open the associated group of photos.
One UI 3 allows the smartphone owner to customize the user interface according to their preferences. For quick exchange of images, videos or documents, you can "pin" labels with the most frequently used sending addresses, be it a phone number, an account in a messenger, or e-mail. One UI also allows you to create different profiles, for example, for work and personal life.
The developers also took care of integrating the digital well-being function to control habits and time spent with a smartphone. In the future, the list of changes to One UI 3 will expand.
