All the benefits of One UI 6.0

A new button layout has brought dedicated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth icons to the top of the screen for easy access.
Samsung owners (and millions of other Android fans) can also reposition the watch on their lock screen to customize it.
According to experts at SamMobile, there is a “more stylish and modern” default font that can be selected in the settings.
Pop-up windows remain open when you go to the Recents screen, allowing users to pick up where they left off.
Samsung owners can also look forward to a new weather widget with improved illustrations and additional information about snowfall, air pressure and moon phases.
The Camera app gets custom widgets to choose from, more watermark orientation options, simpler video size options, quality optimization, and a new Auto FPS setting for brighter videos.
While the gallery has been optimized to allow for faster edits in the detailed view and the ability to save cut images and stickers.
