The new One UI 4.1 operating system is more intuitive and fluid for the user. You get customised colours in the UI based on the wallpaper owing to the Android 12 theming engine. The colour changes will be applied to navigation menu buttons, backgrounds, and other elements in the UI. The home screen comes with an uncluttered look and redesigned widgets that offer more information.
There will be widgets on the lock screen that will allow you to control your music player, make notes, check for reminders, check the calendar, make voice memos, and more without unlocking your device. You can even transfer the audio output from earbuds to the speakerphone via the lock screen itself.
The updated Gallery allows you to keep it organised and find your data without much fuss. The Gallery gets automatic highlight videos, which can be accessed just by tapping on the story. Also, it provides you with the location data of the pictures. Edited pictures can be reverted to their original state even after they’re saved. You can select multiple pictures and make changes to their date, time, and location with ease.
The One UI 4.1 photo and video editor brings new emojis and stickers to add a bit more fun to your memories. You can create dynamic moving collages of videos, images, or both.
