Screenshots of Samsung One UI 5 for Galaxy phones have surfaced. That is the interface that the market leader will use on Android 13. The screenshots show slight changes compared to the current One UI.
The screenshots come from telecom journalist Max Weinbach, which she published on 9to5Google. He was able to try an internal build of the software forwarded to him from an undisclosed source.
The build includes new gestures for the use of multitasking. They are currently not active. Swiping up with two fingers would allow users to open splitview, while it would be possible to make a window popup by swiping down from the top right.
Notifications have new, larger icons. Also menus to ask for permissions look different. Instead of the style that Samsung itself used, it seems that Samsung is going to show the Google windows. They are also in the middle of the screen, instead of at the bottom. In addition, there is now a toggle for ultrawideband and users can copy and paste text from images using the keyboard.
Samsung is presumably showing One UI 5 when it goes live with its first public betas for Android 13 upgrades. That will probably happen this fall. Samsung is the first to release upgrades for its high-end models. There is no roadmap yet for when which phone will get the upgrade to Android 13.
