These large screen optimizations include a Taskbar, new multitasking gestures, first-party app optimizations, and more. The same update is now available for previous generation foldables.
The software updates will start with the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3 beginning on September 5 and roll out gradually to global countries.
One UI 4.1.1 will be also extended to Galaxy Z Fold2, Z Flip and Z Fold. One UI Watch4.5 will be supported on Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic.
In addition, Galaxy Watch3 and Galaxy Watch Active2 users will be able to enjoy a software update that delivers selected features from the One UI Watch4.5.
One UI 4.1.1 Brings Galaxy Z Fold 4 Features to Z Fold 3
With One UI 4.1.1, new productivity and camera features are designed to make already powerful devices more intuitive.
With the new Taskbar, you can access and switch between apps faster than ever, providing a familiar PC-like layout that puts everything you need right at your fingertips.
With drag-and-drop support straight from the Taskbar, multitasking on Galaxy Z Fold is easier than ever. Dragging an app to the edge now opens split view, while dragging it into the centre will open it in pop-up view, giving you multiple ways to see your apps and easy switching between views.
If there are apps you find yourself using together, you can now add pairs or groups of apps to the Taskbar, allowing you to access your favourite app pairs all at once.
Multitasking features are also more intuitive and easier to interact with now, thanks to new gestures. With simple swipe gestures, you can instantly switch full-screen apps to pop-up windows or split your screen in half for more ways to manage your tasks.
With full control of the camera right on the Cover Screen, you can take high-resolution selfies with the main camera using Rear Cam Selfie.
An upgrade to Quick Shot on the Galaxy Z Flip series now lets you see the preview and take photos in their true ratio on the Cover Screen while allowing you to access Portrait Mode to make every moment photogenic.
You can also switch seamlessly from Quick Shot to Flex mode while taking photos or recording video, letting you switch between angles without interrupting your shot for a truly hands-free experience.
One UI 4.1.1 brings all new functionalities to the Cover Screen on the Galaxy Z Flip series, letting you do more than ever without opening your phone. Make calls to your favourite contacts, dial back missed calls and even reply to texts with voice-to-text and emojis right from the Cover Screen.
And you can now take more control over your device with additional Quick Setting options, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, airplane mode and flashlight.
One UI Watch4.5
One UI Watch4.5 brings six new colourful and interactive watch faces and a palette of fresh new colours and dynamic complications to the Galaxy Watch4 series.
It makes the series’ variety of distinct layout options even more diverse so users can match their unique lifestyles with the perfect type of display. Never lose track of your own watch faces, thanks to the favourite watch face list, which helps you save your creations and access them quickly and easily.
One UI Watch4.5 makes communication on Galaxy Watch4 series smoother and more convenient than ever. Users have more choices over how they communicate right from their wrist with the addition of a QWERTY keyboard to existing voice recognition and handwriting features, helping users switch conveniently between different communication styles for different occasions.
In addition, beginning from the end of September, a new software update will enable Galaxy Watch3 and Galaxy Watch Active2 users also to enjoy some of the new features of Galaxy Watch5 series.
It includes two new watch faces — Gradient number and Pro analogue — to help users express their tastes and styles better, and snore detection to provide more analysis of last night’s sleep quality.
On top of them, Samsung Health Monitor app to measure blood pressure (BP) and electrocardiogram (ECG) will be expanded to Galaxy Watch3 and Watch Active2 users in recently launched 24 markets, giving deeper insights into their overall health.
