What Makes One UI 6.1 Special

One UI 6.1 doesn’t bring new interface elements or new settings, so you’re going to see no changes until you start exploring the new AI features. The brand has announced a lot of AI features, including the ability to circle the item to search, convert any video to slow-mo, wallpaper generation, AI photo editing/enhancement tools, live translation during a phone call, and more.

Galaxy S23 Software Update Policy

Samsung released the Galaxy S23 series last year with Android 13 out of the box. And it has already rolled out the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update to the S23 phones.

According to Samsung’s software update policy, the Galaxy S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra will get a total of four major OS updates. The first one has already arrived in the form of Android 14, and hence, they’ll get three more OS updates. However, ahead of the Android 15 update, Samsung will bring the One UI 6.1 update, which will be based on Android 14.
