New features and camera capabilities available to more Galaxy users as Samsung starts its One UI 3.1 update

Samsung Electronics Canada announced that the latest One UI 3.1 update is coming to the Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+, Galaxy S20 Series 5G (Galaxy S20 5G, Galaxy S20+ 5G, Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G), Galaxy Note20 Series 5G (Galaxy Note20 5G, Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G) and Galaxy Z Series (Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Galaxy Z Fold2 5G)[1]. The update, which was first launched with the Galaxy S21 Series 5G, brings select, new camera capabilities for capturing and editing incredible photos and videos and smart new features that enhance everyday life, so you can get even more out of your Galaxy device.


“Samsung is committed that our devices continue to deliver the up-to-date mobile experiences throughout their lifecycle,” said TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “Following the announcement of 3-generation Android OS upgrades for select Galaxy devices, we ensure to equip our consumers with powerful new features as soon as they are available. Our One UI 3.1 update marks an important next step in that mission.”


Shoot Dynamic Photos and Videos with Smart New Camera Features

The Galaxy S21 Series 5G with One UI 3.1 introduced incredible new camera innovations, making it now easy to capture stunning photos and shoot professional-looking videos. Now, Galaxy[1] owners can experience these features with the One UI 3.1 update.


Never miss a moment with the improved Single Take[2] feature, which captures a variety of still and video formats simultaneously with just a tap.


Once you’ve captured your shot, One UI 3.1 introduces the new Object eraser tool to help you to get that perfect image. Use this intelligent photo editing tool to cut out unwanted parts of your photos effortlessly, without time-consuming manual editing. If you want to edit out distracting objects, simply tap the area you wish to remove and it will be automatically selected and deleted.


One UI 3.1 features an improved touch autofocus and autoexposure controller[3], making adjusting the focus and brightness of your photos easy, allowing you to capture your best shot every time. With just a swipe left or right anywhere on the screen, you can now edit the brightness of your image before you’ve taken the shot.

One UI 3.1 also introduces the new Multi Mic Recording[4] feature, which, when in Pro Video mode, allows you to simultaneously record audio through both your phone and a connected Bluetooth device such as Galaxy Buds Pro, Buds Live and Buds+[5]. So, whether you’re a vlogger narrating a shot where you want to be heard from afar, or you’re a budding musician wanting to record the sound of your voice and instrument separately for more professional-sounding audio, you can get creative with Multi Mic Recording and make videos look and sound incredible.

All your best shots and favourite moments are stored in the updated Gallery[6] which now groups and arranges your videos and photos into a clean, easy-to-navigate feed.


Smart New Features that Enhance your Everyday Life

Head into your Settings to find One UI 3.1’s new Eye Comfort Shield[7] mode which automatically adjusts the blue light based on the time of day. Using Eye Comfort Shield’s warmer tones can help you fall asleep easier at night and you can set your device to automatically adjust your screen’s colours throughout the day or personalize the schedule yourself.

Your privacy is important and now One UI 3.1 makes it easier to control what you share. Remove metadata that reveals the location of your photos before you share them or use Private Share[8] to control who is allowed to access the content you send and how long it is available for.

With new One UI 3.1 on your devices, the experience of the Galaxy ecosystem is smooth and seamless. As well as a consistent interface that makes switching between your phone and tablet hassle-free, the Galaxy Buds Pro, Buds Live and Buds+[9] Auto Switch feature means that your audio follows you when you switch between Galaxy devices. If you’re watching videos on your phone or listening to your favourite song or podcast, you can enjoy more realistic and immersive sound with 360 Audio by connecting your compatible phone and Galaxy Buds Pro– allowing you to stay at the centre of your listening experience.
