One UI 7 Update: Key Takeaways 🚀

  • One UI 7 on the Horizon: Samsung’s gearing up to launch One UI 7.0 alongside Android 15 in late 2024. 🌌🆕
  • Scheduled for Second Half of 2024: Mark your calendars for an exciting update in the latter part of the year. 🗓️🔔

  • Wider Eligibility: Many Galaxy devices, especially those launched with Android 13 or flagship/mid-range models from 2021 onwards, will get the One UI 7.0 update. 📱🔄

Samsung will begin rolling out its One UI 6.1 update at the end of March, bringing a host of new features – including Galaxy AI – to its legacy phones. Not all models got Galaxy AI, of course, just the Galaxy S23 series, S23 FE, Z Fold5, Z Flip5 and Tab S9 series. 

One UI 6 – and its subsequent updates – are tied to Android 14, whereas One UI 7 will be Samsung’s Android 15 software. And with Android 15 bringing a whole slew of new features and capabilities to phones later this year, work on One UI 7 should now be nearing completion. 

So, what can we expect from this new update from Samsung? Let’s dig in and find out…

Samsung One UI 7 Release Date

Samsung has big plans for its Galaxy devices in late 2024. The company will release One UI 7.0, a major software update that will come alongside Android 15 from Google.

OneUI 7.0 is scheduled to arrive in the second half of 2024, potentially before the release of Apple’s iOS 18 update. This follows Samsung’s typical schedule for releasing One UI upgrades toward the end of each year.

While exact details are still unknown, it’s expected that One UI 7.0 will include new AI (artificial intelligence) features. Samsung has been focusing a lot on AI for its Galaxy phones and tablets lately.

The AI upgrades that Samsung introduced recently with One UI 6.1 are likely just the start. One UI 7.0 will probably take things even further when it comes to using AI to improve your Galaxy experience.

This ties into Samsung’s promise to provide 7 years of Android upgrades for certain Galaxy smartphones. By spreading out big new features over time, Samsung can keep updating devices for longer.

Many of Samsung’s latest Galaxy phones and tablets will be eligible for the One UI 7.0 update in late 2024. Any models that launched with Android 13 pre-installed should get it, along with flagship and some mid-range devices from 2021 onwards.

What I’d Like To See Inside One UI 7 – Improvements, Tweaks & Fixes

I’ve been thinking a lot about how Samsung could really step up their game with One UI 7, based on what everyone’s been saying. Here’s where I see room for improvement:

First up, the Game Launcher really needs some work. I’ve come across quite a few complaints, and, to be honest, I’m feeling it too. It’s like, “Come on, can we please get this thing to work right?”

We need it to run smoother, with less lag and no more random slow-downs when we’re in the middle of gaming.

Plus, wouldn’t it be awesome to tweak the settings ourselves? Like adjusting how sensitive our screen is or managing notifications so they don’t pop up and distract us. And hey, throwing in some social features so we can chat with our friends without leaving the game would be pretty neat.

But that’s not all. Here are some other areas I think could use a bit of a boost:

  • Battery life: There’s got to be a way to make our phones last longer. Maybe something smart that manages power better for the apps we don’t use much?
  • Camera quality: Especially in low light. And if the camera could process our shots faster, that would be great. I’d also love more control over the settings, kind of like what photography buffs get with their fancy cameras.
  • One-handed mode: Our phones are getting bigger, and my hands aren’t. It’d be cool if one-handed mode made everything easier to reach.
  • Customization: I want to make my phone look and feel like it’s really mine. More options for themes, icons, and animations would be awesome.
  • Notifications: Getting a handle on these would be a life-changer. Being able to pick which app notifications are important and which can wait would be super helpful.

Expected Roll-Out Date For One UI 7 & Android 15

The rollout will likely begin sometime between October-November 2024 after a beta testing period around August. However, some Galaxy devices may not receive the update until early 2025 depending on their age and model. Samsung has a track record of being pretty slow at updating its older, cheaper legacy models.

Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S24 users, as well as the those using the latest foldable Samsung phones, should be first in line to get Android 15 and One UI 7.
