Galaxy S24’s smooth animations are coming soon to older models

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra review AM AH 24

Samsung significantly improved the Galaxy user experience with the Galaxy S24 series. The new flagships arrived with One UI 6.1 which offers smoother system animations. These improvements may soon come to older Galaxy devices courtesy of an update for the company’s One UI Home launcher app. The update may arrive as a part of the One UI 6.1 update or separately.

Your Samsung device may soon get Galaxy S24-like smooth animations

One UI 6.1 brought several new features to the Galaxy S24 lineup. While AI features received more attention from the public and media alike, Samsung also worked on improving the overall user experience. It made some minor UI tweaks and improved system animations. The latter is enabled by version of One UI Home. The new version isn’t available for devices running One UI 6.0. They are on One UI Home version

However, SamMobile recently found that the updated version, officially exclusive to the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra, also works as effectively on the Galaxy S23 series. The publication downloaded an APK file for version of the app from and sideloaded it on their Galaxy S23. It worked like a charm, offering improved animations on the home screen, particularly when opening and closing apps.

The new version solved the problem of frame drops in animations, something very common on One UI 6.0. The animation stutter that was previously there on the Galaxy S23 was gone after installing the new version of One UI Home. This suggests Samsung is ready to roll out the update to older Galaxy phones, beyond the Galaxy S23 series. It might hold off the rollout until the One UI 6.1 release, which is expected later this month.

While you can already sideload One UI Home version on your Samsung smartphone or tablet for Galaxy S24-like smooth animations, we recommend waiting for the official update. You should always download apps from official sources. APK files downloaded from third-party stores may contain malware, potentially causing security issues on your phone. The official update may not be too far off now.

One UI 6.1 will bring more changes to your Galaxy device

Along with smoother system animations, One UI 6.1 will add AI features and other changes to your Galaxy device. You get camera improvements, including the ability to use two rear cameras for Dual Recording. Previously, you could only record with one rear camera and the selfie camera. The update also brings AI-powered photo and video editing tools. We will let you know when Samsung rolls out One UI 6.1 to older models.
