Samsung reintroduces OLED screen burn-in protection in One UI 6.1 update

Samsung added several new features and optimizations with the One UI 6.0 update. However, it removed one crucial feature for phones and tablets with OLED screens: screen burn-in protection. It promised to bring that feature with a software update, and the company seems to delivered on that front with the One UI 6.1 update.

One UI 6.1 brings back OLED screen burn-in protection to older Galaxy phones

A few days ago, Samsung released the One UI 6.1 update to the Galaxy S23 series, Galaxy Z Flip 5, Galaxy Z Fold 5, and Galaxy Tab S9 series. Apart from several AI features, smoother animations and transitions, and some new features, One UI 6.1 brings back OLED screen burn-in protection.

The folks at Toranji have tested One UI 6.1, and the screen burn-in protection feature works as intended. As you can see in the GIF image above, the UI elements in the status bar and the navigation bar on the Galaxy S23 Ultra move slightly every few minutes.

While this feature has been tested only on the Galaxy S23 series as of now, it isn’t clear if it is also present on the Galaxy Z Flip 5, Galaxy Z Fold 5, and Galaxy Tab S9 series. However, we don’t have a reason to doubt that Samsung would have included this feature in the Galaxy S23 but not other devices.

Watch our in-depth videos below to see all the new features that One UI 6.1 brings to older Galaxy devices.
