Samsung One UI 5.0 Overview:
Samsung discussed the new version of One UI at large during its annual SDC (Samsung Developer Conference event). Nearly two months after Android 13 made its way to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), the smartphone manufacturer is officially launching One UI 5.0 update for its Galaxy devices.
Android 13 is a relatively minor update over Android 12. However, with the One UI 5.0 update, Samsung is bringing a few of its own customization features to the platform. One of the most noticeable changes in the new OS is the revamped lock screen. It now supports new clock styles as well as video wallpapers, among other things. Users will be able to edit these directly from the lock screen, much like with iOS 16.
The brand is also adding Stacked Widgets support, which allows users to place multiple widgets on a single home screen and navigate through them. Samsung has also improved the animations, quick toggle area, and notification customization with the One UI 5. Users will also be able to customize call background effects for specific contacts.
