The Galaxy S23 series is about to be released by Samsung, and the company is planning to unveil it on February 1st. A revised version of One UI for the company’s high-end smartphones looks to be undergoing testing by the company in advance of the introduction. The One UI version 5.1 for the Galaxy S22 is currently being tested by the South Korean company.
According to recent reports, Samsung is reportedly doing internal testing of the One UI 5.1 update for the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra with the firmware version S90xEXXU2CVL7. The test firmware was discovered on Samsung’s servers, and it is possible that it will be made available for the Galaxy S22 series just a few days after the Galaxy S23 series is introduced. If Samsung follows its typical pattern of activity, we anticipate that the Galaxy S23 series will be the first to receive One UI 5.1.
One UI 5.1 might feature enhanced customization options for the lock screen. Although it is unclear what additions One UI 5.1 may bring to the table, it is expected to be released later this year. Despite this, the firm gave hints a few months ago that it was reserving some lock screen customization capabilities for One UI 5.1, which would be based on Android 13 when it was released (similar to One UI 5.0). If Samsung were to implement Android 13’s new media player widget design in the notifications area, predictive back gesture, partial screen mirroring, and changes to the taskbar, we would be quite pleased.
The rollout of Samsung’s One UI 5.0 was fast, and we anticipate that the rollout of One UI 5.1 to already-existing smartphones will be just as fast.
