Nothing Phone 1 - Nothing OS BEST LOOK


Nothing is all set to launch the Nothing Phone 1 and the highlight of that device is it's Nothing OS which is coming with some Exciting features and changes. The Nothing OS will be based on Google's Android 12 and Nothing plans to use it's own Retro Dot-Matrix Design language, this along with using most Google apps with Material You Finish.

The launch event gave us some hints what to Expect from Nothing OS, So we made a Concept accordingly. The Most Exciting Part of Nothing OS is of-course the Quick Settings, coz it is way different than basic Pixyish or OnePlus, Samsung’s Interface. Yeah you guys can see on top we’ll have two circular elements containing the information about your data pack, or balance, and connected devices with the battery level. In this Image, you guys can see the swipe-able interface, Tesla and Nothing ear 1 are connected devices and when you tap on that, you’ll see this pop-up menu with tons of options, so I guess one can control the connected devices easily from there. Nothing Says Non-Nothing devices will also connect with NOTHING os, that is gonna be awesome.




Nothing Official Launcher is live on Play Store, this is a basic launcher with basic icons, but we do have sone Dot-Matrix widget, like this cool weather widget, Digital and Analog clock. You guys can select a transparent or solid style of Digital Clock. Fun part is you can enlarge an icon which you use most, like I use twitter a lot, so it is gonna be easy for me to find and click on that app.

Nothing is also working on their icons, which I guess may look like this, icons made from dots, and I hope they give us an option to turn off and turn on the Dot theme. Nothing says this OS will be bloatware free, so no third part apps I guess, and Nothing of course is working with Google for this OS, they’re using almost all Gapps, so I think will surely see Material You design interface in there. Yes Google has done so many nice changes, like all Nothing has to do is, use them, So yeah again I think Pixel style Interface all over with Material You finish, some Nothing Exclusive Addons like Widget, Voice Recorder, Music Player and of course the awesome Quick Settings interface which I hope can connect to and control all smart devices with an ease.

Samsung Smartphones getting OneUI 4.1 (Android 12) Official Update


Samsung has started rolling out Official Android 12 OneUI 4.1 Update for Galaxy Smartphones. OneUI 4.1 first came with the Galaxy S22 Series with some new features.

Samsung OneUI 4.1 (Android 12) will be soon available for Galaxy S21 Series (Samsung Galaxy S21 FE), Latest Galaxy A Series and Tab S7 FE. Samsung plans to extend it to even more devices - S20 Series, Z Fold, Z Flip, Note Series, S10 Series, Galaxy A and Tab S Series in the coming months.

Some Exciting OneUI 4.1 Features includes iOS Style Smart Widget which won’t need much space and can swipe between different widgets allowing users to keep a single widget on screen, saving space, and at same time you guys can use all widgets like clock, Samsung notes, date and time. There are new Quick Settings as well, Samsung have done small changes in the Text, it is now Medium than Bold in OneUI 4. Now I’m gonna show you guys the Animation and System Apps Interface, but there are small changes, but you won’t notice much.
 


In the Camera application Pro mode, you can now switch to Main, Ultra Wide, Telephoto 3x and Telephoto 10X, in ONEUI 4 it just Wide and Main. There are some new features in the Settings, like the Storage Section has an Option RAM Plus, which is like a visual RAM, by default it was 4 Gigs in OneUI 4, and now in 4.1, you can choose 2 Gigs to Max out 8 Gigs. 

Finally the Lockscreen Wallpaper service has a new option Samsung Global Goals, you can get daily messages about the figures, on how much change Samsung have done in the society, so a nice initiative. The OneUI 4.1 is not only about the Features, but the animation is now faster than ever and I really like this change. This is Samsung OneUI 4.1 vs Pixel OS, and honestly speaking, I like the Color Pallet Picker of OneUI.
