Samsung should soon extend the rollout in Germany to users who have not tested the beta version. Afterwards Samsung will probably offer the new Android version to users in other countries as in previous years. Since the update already includes the security patches from December 1, Samsung is expected to limit the update to beta testers until Google releases the Android security bulletins for December.
One UI 2.0 is a rather small update for Samsung’s own Android article. Among other things, the developers have revised the fast settings and incorporated the navigation gestures of Android 10. Various in-house apps have also been redesigned, including device maintenance. The volume control also has a new, slimmer look.
Microsoft’s cloud service OneDrive has also been integrated into the gallery app. The synchronization of photos with OneDrive can now be triggered directly from the gallery. OneDrive also replaces Samsung Cloud in the gallery.
- With the update, the new Android function for digital well-being is also available on Samsung devices.
- For example, the new focus mode is designed to help users concentrate on important things.
- It turns off notifications from pre-defined apps that could distract users.
A new interface has also been added to the camera app to simplify operation and make it more intuitive. The list of modes displayed above the trigger can now be customized. Another new feature is a slow-motion function for the front camera, which is reserved for the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 series. This also applies to the new Pro mode, which now supports long exposures of up to 30 seconds.
