Samsung phones to receive big free Android upgrade including new camera perks – full list reveals if you're eligible | The Sun

MILLIONS of Samsung owners are about to receive the brand new Android 14 operating system – and all the perks that accompany it.

Some of the new perks include a new emoji design, a major camera app upgrade and way more customisation.

Android 14 was unveiled by Google in early October, when it was first rolled out to Pixel devices.

But the operating system will be issued out to Samsung Galaxy devices over the coming months.

Although, it will be titled something different: One UI 6.0.

The update will be ready for Samsung's newest Galaxy phones first.

There's a more "stylish and modern" default font, according to experts at SamMobile, that can be selected in Settings.

Pop-up windows will stay open when you navigate over to the Recents screen, so users can pick up where they left off.

Samsung owners can also enjoy a new weather widget with enhanced illustrations alongside more information about snowfall, atmospheric pressure and moon phases.

The camera app is gaining custom widgets to choose from, more alignment options for watermarks, easier video sizing options, quality optimisation and a new Auto FPS setting for brighter videos.

While the gallery has been tweaked to allow for quicker edits in detail view and the ability to ave clipped images and stickers.
