Now that Android 11 has officially launched, many owners of non-Google Pixel phones are wondering how their device’s maker will customize the update. Today we’re getting an early look at Samsung’s custom UI.
The first One UI 3 screenshots have been shared by XDA-Developers, showing how Samsung will adapt Android 11 for its Galaxy devices. The early beta is currently being offered to select developers who signed up with Samsung, but it should be available publicly soon in the US, UK, South Korea, China, India, Germany, and Poland.
As for the update itself, it’s definitely still One UI but there are some notable changes. Samsung has added a blur effect to the notification shade behind the alerts themselves, and the volume slider has been updated and can expand to show sliders for audio sources like Bixby, music, and alarms.
Also new is a “Minimal battery use” mode that turns on a dark theme and limits apps for those times you really need to stretch your battery life. There’s also an “Enhanced processing” mode that’ll give you a performance boost.
Several Samsung apps have been updated in One UI 3, too. Those include the Gallery app that lets you revert edits you’ve made to your photos, a Trash for deleted messages in the Messages app, and the Contacts app that’ll now help you quickly delete duplicate contacts.
Samsung has included many of Android 11’s new features in One UI 3, like Bubbles, the “Conversations” section in the notification shade, one-time permissions, and the media player controls under your Quick Settings. One feature that isn’t included in this One UI 3 beta, though, is the Device Controls shortcut that appears when you long-press the power button.
Because this is an early beta of Samsung’s One UI 3, we could see some more changes made before the update is finished and begins rolling out to the public. Exactly when that’ll happen is still unknown, but while we wait you can peruse the full changelog for this early One UI 3 beta, as shared by Android Police.
