Can you feel it? This coming Wednesday, February 1st, Samsung will hold its latest Unpacked event, and that means the company will unveil the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra. It’s just that all the hardware specifications have been leaked, along with pricing in the US, Europe and some other markets. Germany WinFuture has been the source of some leaks and has done so again.
This time, the online publication published the list of One UI 5.1 changes for the Galaxy S23 series. One interface is Samsung’s, which moves touch elements to the bottom of the screen. This makes them more easily accessible for those with small hands who use a large screen phone with one hand.

WinFuture originally published the changelog in German, but we used the translation feature available with the Microsoft Edge browser to translate it into English. The One UI 5.1 update will eventually find its way to phones other than the Galaxy S23 series (including the Galaxy S22 series). However, a feature called “AI Restoration” will reportedly only be found in the Galaxy S23 series. This could be similar to the Photo Unblur feature for the Pixel 7 series. Photo Unblur fixes old, blurry photos in the Google Photos app, even those taken with a different camera.

The leaked and translated One UI 5.1 changelog is as follows:

  • Changing the shade of a selfie just got easier.
Easily change the tone of your selfies using the Effects button on the side of the screen.

Some of the more interesting changes include the addition of a battery widget, as the iPhone and Pixel phones already have one available. We like the ability to use a QR code to transfer your Wi-Fi information from an old Galaxy phone to a new one. And with One UI 5.1, if you’re using the Samsung Internet app on your phone, all the pages you open on your phone will appear in your computer’s browser.
