Germany has been by far the first country to get the update, although the support website of Samsung it is specified that “the program is available to participants from Germany, China, South Korea, USA. UU., the Spain, France, India, Poland and the Uk”.
Also, the web Samsung UK says that in these countries will be available from the 20th of November, ie, tomorrow. Be that as it may, it is already possible to sign up for the program to receive the beta of the new version of Android, that comes with several new developments under the arm. The most notable is One IU, the renewal of the layer of customization Samsung Experiencie.
The new Android Foot for the Samsung flagship
The changelog of the update was desvelado a few days ago, when the us users received. Thus, we anticipate what are the new features and improvements introduced in the beta.
The first of these is, as we said before, One UI, a new layer of customization that is bet by the simplicity and accessibility. The main feature is that the main elements of the interface have been moved to the lower area of the screen to facilitate interaction with a single hand. It has also implemented a dark mode and rearranged the menus and content, according to Samsung, “help you to concentrate on the task you have in your hands.”
on the other hand, notifications have been updated so that you can respond to messages from the notifications panel, and you can see the thumbnails of the images that you receive. The keyboard from Samsung has been updated with the emoji Unicode 11.0 and now you can adapt their appearance depending on the predominant color of the app you’re using. It has also enabled the keypad in all apps.
Always On Display has been updated with new watches, and added information of the battery charge. the Bixby allows you to search within the apps, the phone app allows you to filter the history of calls received or made, they have added more tools to the photo editor of the gallery, and more options to “My Files”.
Also, it is possible to use the mobile while Samsung DeX plays on a computer screen or television and, finally, you will be able to use without the need of a DeX Station. This means that you’ll be able to use Samsung DeX with any compatible HDMI adapter.
Finally, the camera application has received a optimizer scenes that fits the color settings of the camera to “improve photography” and it has added support for images in HEIF, a format that we have already seen implemented on the Apple iPhone.
