The One UI 5 software update brings the most customizable and secure experience for Galaxy users. With that, the OS update brings in new clock styles, notification pop-ups, and the ability for users to trim and use a video as their lock screen. On the security side, One UI 5 will warn users if they are about to share a photo that may contain vital information such as their passport or ID. There's also a new Maintenance Mode (opens in new tab) that allows users to lock down their phones and hide personal information when their devices are being repaired.
While the devices listed through Samsung's message to its South Korean users should automatically alert you to the update of One UI 5, you can always manually check for a system update through your device's settings.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 shows the company's dedication and focus over the past three years to improve its popular foldable phone. The phone features a 6.7-inch, 120Hz AMOLED display with an excellent 12MP wide-angle lens on its back and a 10MP selfie camera tucked into its inner screen.
