Samsung Might Postpone One UI 7 and Prioritize One UI 6.1.1 for Your Galaxy Phone

Samsung usually introduces a new version of One UI alongside its flagship foldable phones annually

 While flagship Galaxy phones receive beta versions of upcoming major updates based on new Android versions.

This year, Samsung might break its usual pattern by launching One UI 6.1.1 for its flagship Galaxy phones and delaying the release of One UI 7 based on Android 15.

Despite the delay, One UI 6.1.1 is anticipated to bring significant enhancements, including a new AI-powered S Pen feature focused on graffiti generation.

Leaker Ice Universe has revealed that this new feature will creatively transform S Pen writings into graffiti using advanced AI technology.

Earlier iterations of One UI 6.1 lacked specific AI features tailored for the S Pen, making One UI 6.1.1 a notable update in this regard.

Ice Universe also suggests that One UI 6.1.1 will enhance system animations, particularly wallpaper animations, for a more immersive user experience.

Historically, Samsung typically begins testing Android 15-based One UI 7 around late July or early August each year.

Samsung is known for promptly updating its flagship phones with the latest Android versions, often releasing stable builds by October.

However, this year may see a longer wait for One UI 7 as Samsung focuses initially on rolling out the substantial updates of One UI 6.1.1.

Rumors suggest that One UI 6.1.1 could also address camera image processing issues 

 And introduce additional features to the Galaxy S24 series, which has not received significant firmware updates since its launch.
