Samsung has become the industry leader in terms of software updates as other brands are nowhere near updating their devices to Android 12. While other brands are not able to launch their device with Android 12, Samsung is updating the two-year-old flagship S20 to Android 12. Samsung’s new One UI 4.1 brings a lot of new features to these devices giving them a much-needed refresh. The new update includes the latest March 2022 security patch. The changelog for the update is a big one, but we are going to discuss the main ones.
One UI 4.1
The first change is the palette picker in the wallpaper-based theming. As we all know, Android 12 brought the wallpaper-based color theming for the entire UI, Samsung also implemented it on One UI in its own way. Now, the color palette picker is a long vertical rectangular in place of the old circular one. There is also the new enhanced object eraser and the live sharing in Duo. The enhanced object eraser is a very useful tool for many users who wants a clean profile pic on their social handles.
Samsung has also enhanced the Grammarly integration on the keyboard. The other changes include the ability to search on youtube from the finder app. You can also hide search results on the finder. Now, you can also zoom up to 3x on the portrait video mode too. There is much more to explore once you update your device to One UI 4.1.
If you hold any one of the devices mentioned above, you might receive the update notification soon. You can also check for the update manually by heading to the Software Update tab in the Settings app.
