Samsung has once again brought an important screen protection function to the brand’s cell phones. The new thing is a series of features that protect screens from the burn-in effect.

The person who identified the change was the 9to5Google. When updating to One UI 6.1, the icons on the top bar of the Android the pixels change frequently, causing changes in appearance and position. Previously, the company itself had already confirmed the return of this tool.

The idea is to prevent the so-called burn-in effect, which can “fix” images on screens, especially in the case of OLED panels. It is caused in particular thanks to visual resources that do not disappear from the screen from time to time, as in the case of application and status icons or lock screen elements, for example.

Update returned the feature to some models

Still according to the 9to5 Google, the Galaxy S23 Ultra was the model that last gained access to the feature again. Both last year’s top-of-the-line model and the foldable Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 are receiving the One UI 6.1 update in some territories — including here in Brazil.

The set of burn-in protections is enabled by default on the phone and does not require any activity on the part of the user, since everything happens from changes to the system itself. The functions were first added in One UI 5, but disappeared in the One UI 6 update.

Apart from the preventive feature, the Android 14 update also adds Galaxy AI artificial intelligence features to the devices, in addition to a series of visual and usability changes.
