Samsung releases the Galaxy F23 smartphone with Android 13-based One UI 5 update

News Summary:

  • Galaxy F23 users in India can now install the update by going to Settings » Software Update and tapping Download and Install. You can also download updates from the firmware database and install them manually. Samsung’s Android 13-based One UI 5.0 software brings a redesigned UI, new customization options, more features, and improved performance. UI appearance changes include dynamic app icons that can adapt to the color of your home screen background image, smoother animations, better transition effects, and a new blur effect throughout the UI.

  • Samsung rolls out an update for the Galaxy F23 5G in India, bringing the Android 13 operating system and One UI 5.0 customizations. It comes with firmware version E236BXXU1BVL1 and the download size is about 2.7GB. However, this update includes November 2022 security patches, not this month’s security patches. Samsung usually releases updates for new Android versions that package older security patches, and provides the latest security patches in a separate update. The Galaxy F23 is on Samsung’s quarterly update schedule, so it’s expected to get its next security update in 2023.

When it comes to customization options, you can customize your lock screen with different clock styles, notification settings, and live previews. Choose from 16 color options for the user interface color palette. You can also set a different call background for each contact. The new update brings many new features, but one of the most interesting and useful is the ability to extract text from images or camera live feeds. For example, if you point your camera at a business card, you can recognize and extract the name, contact information, and address on the business card.

More importantly, it intelligently suggests actions that the software can take based on context. For example, if the feature detects a mobile phone number, it will give you the option to call or text the contact.
