Changelog for the Android 12-based One UI Core 4.1 update for Galaxy A21
The Samsung Galaxy A21 is getting a UI redesign with the Color Palette feature that extracts primary colors from the chosen wallpaper and applies the colors to various UI elements across the system. Security and privacy have been improved as well. The device can now display permissions at a glance such that you’re able to decide whether you want the app to have permission for specific aspects of your data. You can even choose to offer apps an approx. location instead of the accurate location. Moreover, you’ll be able to choose to get notified if the apps access information in your phone’s clipboard.
Samsung has also cleaned the camera app’s UI while enabling the Portrait Mode for pets. The camera app starts to record videos as soon as the finger touches the shutter button. Earlier, the video recording would start once the shutter button was touched and released. The new design will ensure that the user never misses a precious moment.
