Samsung announced that it has released the latest One UI 3.1 software update to some older phones. The update will roll out some of the new software features of the S21 series to last year’s flagships, including Galaxy S20, Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip phones.
Most of the new features focus on bringing some of the software enhancements Samsung has released for the camera in the S21 series to older devices.
Samsung brings 2020 models closer to its new lineup
Future new features include the “advanced single shot” option that automatically captures and creates various still images and videos with one click, and the smart object eraser tool to quickly remove unwanted parts of your photos. At the same time, it will be possible to use a separate Bluetooth microphone to record sound with the new feature.
The update brings the S20 / S20 Plus and S21 / S21 Plus models, which share almost the same camera hardware, closer in terms of overall functionality. However, there are still some features that make the new device different, such as the ability to easily preview and switch between different lenses.
Samsung’s “Eye Comfort Shield” is also added to 2020 devices, which automatically adjusts the blue light output on the phones according to the time of day.
In addition, Private Share, Samsung’s blockchain-based encryption option to send files and photos more securely, will be included in the old flagships with the new update.
