Samsung Galaxy Books adds a new feature
Samsung announced this Thursday that its Galaxy Books series notebooks have added a “Recent Websites” function after running the new version of Microsoft’s Phone Link application. The company claims the move is to enhance the connection experience between PCs and mobile devices.
Based on a recent survey, 77% of users use multiple apps/devices to complete a task, but it takes a lot of extra effort during the task. With this in mind, Samsung Electronics is always looking for new ways to deliver connected experiences that harmonize the strengths and functions of its mobile phones, PCs, tablets, watches, and more to create a truly seamless multi-device ecosystem.
Gizchina News of the week
On Win10 / Win11 devices and Android devices (requires Android 7.0 Nougat and above) that support the Microsoft Phone Link app, this “Recent Websites” feature can access the user’s web browsing history. This is great news for Galaxy Book users, as it provides instant access to a list of recently opened websites on their mobile phones. These sites can be accessed by launching the Microsoft Phone Link application directly on the PC or via its pop-up windows.
Recent Websites enhances connectivity to make it richer and more adaptable for Galaxy mobile phones and Galaxy Book series devices. By unlocking endless possibilities between devices, Samsung enables customers to use and combine their devices in more innovative and accessible ways.
Samsung has tested the OneUI 5.1 update for the Galaxy S21 FE
After testing the Galaxy S22 and other models, the latest news claims that Samsung has internally tested the OneUI 5.1 update for the Galaxy S21 FE. The latest screenshots show that Samsung has launched a small-scale test in the European market. The version number of the small test update is G990BXXU2EWA8.
The CheckFirm app doesn’t reveal anything about the update. It also did not mention when the internal testing will be over. Thus, at the moment, we can not tell when the update will be available for customers. However, we can expect the update to arrive sooner rather than later. Since testing is already on the way, the update should arrive pretty soon.

Samsung applies for “Lifelike Pixel” trademark
The South Korean company will launch the Galaxy S23 series in a few days. The latest news is that Samsung has applied for the “Lifelike Pixel” trademark. This should be used for future screen technology from the perspective of the trademark name and category. Samsung Display is an important subsidiary of Samsung Group. The company recently submitted the “Lifelike Pixel” trademark in South Korea. The trademark file indicates that it can be applied to OLED screens for various devices. This means that the brand name can be used not only for mobile phones and tablets in the future, but also for wearable devices such as headsets.
The existing reports and documents of Samsung Galaxy S23 does not mention the keyword “Lifelike Pixel”. This suggests that this trademark will be applied to future Samsung display technology. The company has also applied for a trademark for the Flex Hybrid to be shown at CES 2023.
