Simultaneously with the release of the Galaxy S22 flagships, the company released a new version of the One UI 4.1 proprietary interface. Yesterday, the premiere of the Galaxy A33 5G, Galaxy A53 5G and Galaxy A73 5 G took place, which also received the current version of the user interface. But these will not be the only smartphones that will be able to try out all the features of the latest iteration of the proprietary interface.
The other day, Samsung announced its plans to upgrade to One UI 4.1. The company decided to distribute the update in two stages. The first wave of updates includes the foldable Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3, the Galaxy S21 series of flagships, a range of Galaxy A devices, and the Galaxy S7 FE tablet.
In the second phase, the update will reach the Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy Z Fold, Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 lines. The One UI 4.1 shell will receive a number of devices from the Galaxy A and Galaxy Tab S series. Unfortunately, the company did not name specific dates for the release of updates and did not list all models that can expect to receive it.
Recall that One UI 4.1 brings with it an improved photo editor and expanded gallery functionality, as well as improved widgets. You can add web links to notes, and on stylus-enabled devices, you can take notes and then make changes to them on another gadget.
