Users can now just hold the lock screen to set the wallpaper, clock style, and notifications in a way that suits them best.

Messages are also more accessible now due to refined text-to-speech and speech-to-text functionality.

Improved Optics

Samsung has also brought improvements to its AI color processing for more natural yet brighter portraits.
