Just like with Android 12, one of the new features should be better customization, which with One UI 4 also includes color palettes and designs of things like menus, icons and so on.

There is also new software for some older Galaxy Smartwatches, because Samsung is also distributing updates to the Tizen operating system for these smart watches.
