Samsung One UI 5: here are the first news of the new interface

Samsung is preparing to launch the next version of its own interface for its smartphones. We are talking about One UI 5 which will be based on Android 13 and whose availability should take place in the coming months.

Even before the first test versions reach users, Max Weinbach unveils the first images of One UI 5. This is how we get to know some of the novelties that the brand is preparing for its new software.

One UI 5 will bring some improvements to the notifications panel

One of the images broadcast concerns the notification bar present in the One Ui 5. We do not have a revolution in this area, but a refresh of this important information aggregator.

The highlights are above all the new icons and a slight modification of the opacity of this panel. Enough for the user to feel that something new has been implemented.

New dialog screen for granting permissions

One of the surprises of One UI 5 is the adoption of the permissions grant screen from pure Android. This screen will appear in the center of the smartphone screen with the more colored option boxes.

It’s unclear if this change stems from One UI 5’s early stage of development or if Samsung is even going to drop its customization in this department. Something we will have to find out with the release of the next One UI test versions.

Privacy and Security Center

In One UI 5 we will also have a privacy and security hub with relevant information about sensitive user data. This will be a place where all your accounts, passwords and other privacy and security data will be aggregated.

Also note the presence of an option that will search for abuse of permissions by applications. This way, it will be easier to revoke any access that you consider abusive or unjustified.

Copy text from images

Until now an integral part of Bixvy Vison, Samsung will make this option available independently. This means that copying text from any image or photo on the keyboard will be even easier with One UI 5.

This novelty will work similar to what we see on iOS. That is, you can select parts of an image that contain text and extract that information wherever you want.

New gestures for options multitasking

With the One Ui 5, Samsung will simplify access to certain components of multitasking from your smartphones. For example, it will now be possible to open the split-screen option with a two-finger swipe from the bottom of the screen upwards. If you want a popup, just swipe down from the top right corner.

Other less impactful new features include new collaboration options in the Notes app, a preview of active apps in quick settings, the smartphone image on the About screen, or a new UWB option in settings.

In short, One UI 5 will focus on refining some new features and not on a major overhaul of Samsung’s interface. Decisions that could promote greater speed in making the software available to all users.
