This is how the price table works

The largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, Samsung only needs to lift a finger to move a good part of the industry. It is for this reason that the implementation of a new version of its operating system is scrutinized very closely. On August 7, 2022, the Korean company announced that the implementation of One UI 5.0 (the overlay based on Android 13) in beta version had begun in certain countries. Unfortunately, France is not affected by this testing program.

The operating system (which is not yet finalized) can be installed on the Galaxy S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra if their owner lives in South Korea, Germany or the US. Availability in other countries (China, India, Poland, UK) is “planned for the next few months“Samsung says succinctly. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you can take a look at Samsung’s site to sign up as a beta tester.

The full list of changes brought by One UI 5.0 is as long as an arm’s length, but Samsung has detailed the most interesting new features in its press release. Among them are advanced options to customize the interface inspired by Android 13.”Users now have 16 preset themes to match their wallpaper and 12 additional color settings for their home screens, icons and quick settings panels“, writes the producer. Still in terms of the interface, the system allows certain widgets to be stacked on top of each other.

Samsung, good student of updates

The Korean manufacturer also states that new options intended for “block notifications from certain apps” has appeared. One UI 5.0 also allows you to choose the language for each application if you want to use certain software in a language other than the system’s. A management center for all security settings has also been added, as well as new accessibility options such as video description and reading of characters entered.

None of this is truly groundbreaking, and a good deal of it is native to Android 13. It’s nice to see Samsung taking the topic of updates seriously, though. Although the One UI 5.0 beta is not available in France, the responsiveness with which the Korean manufacturer implements new versions of its operating system is encouraging for the future. The final version of the OS will no doubt come in the near future, and it will of course be installable in France.
