OneUI 5.0 beta for Android 13 is now available online ahead of its official release.
Although OneUI 5.0 beta based on Android 13 is set to be released to compatible devices in the third week of July 2022, details about the skin have leaked online, revealing a wealth of information about the UI. The information on the update was intercepted by SamMobile, who was followed by the folks at 9to5Google, who uncovered some of the details as mentioned. Here's what you need to know about it.
OneUI 5.0 beta update based on Android 13 is now available online.
According to reports, the OneUI 5.0 beta appears larger and completely different from OneUI 4.0, with a higher background opacity. Onboard, there is Optical Character Recognition (OCR) functionality that recognizes text from images and allows users to copy-paste it wherever they need it.
When it comes to the OneUI 5.0 beta, it features a modified pop-up menu for app permissions. It now occupies the entire screen and gets closer to stock Android 13. Previously, it was displayed at the bottom of the screen; however, in OneUI 5.0 Beta, the prompt is moved to the center of the screen and completely covers it.
Aside from that, Samsung has improved the design of the Security and Privacy Hub. It looks a lot like Android 13 as seen on Pixel devices. It provides users with centralized access to passwords, accounts, privacy features, security, and more.
The notification design has also been revamped. The notifications section has been redesigned to take up less space than the notifications section in OneUI 4.0. The quick settings and notification shade then receive minor updates.
The OneUI 5.0 beta running on the Samsung Galaxy S22 includes two new multitasking gestures. The first is for switching to a split-screen mode, so all you have to do is swipe up with two fingers from the bottom to access a split-screen view. Another is the pop-up view, which you can access by swiping from the right or left top corner of the screen toward the center of the screen.
According to reports, Samsung will soon release the OneUI 5.0 beta to more users, with greater improvements than the previous generation.
