The primary Android 12 Developer Preview was launched final week and according to XDA’s Mishaal Rahman, it carries a hidden UI that’s much like Samsung’s One UI. For these unfamiliar with One UI, the software program is designed to carry interface parts like buttons, toggles, test bins, icons, sliders, progress bars and extra nearer to the underside of the display screen. This manner, customers will not need to carry out calisthenics with their fingers with a purpose to faucet one among these parts within the higher reaches of the show.
A tweet from @ThatJoeHindy reveals that by enabling a hidden “Silky residence” characteristic flag, a brand new system settings UI surfaces with parts positioned close to the underside of the show. Go to adb shell settings put world settings_silky_home true. The model of the UI with the flag enabled has the content material moved decrease towards the underside of the show with a purpose to make one-handed use attainable.
There is no such thing as a assure that the “Silky residence” mode will probably be a part of the secure model of Android 12. Extra thrilling although is the chance that catering to a larger-sized Android display screen like this characteristic does, is an indication that Google goes to offer a Pixel 6 XL mannequin this yr. To this point there is no such thing as a indication that that is within the playing cards, and there are different large-screened Android telephones that might use a UI with extra reachable parts. However many of those are Samsung fashions already served by Samsung’s One UI. Eradicate Samsung from the equation and the percentages enhance in favor of a Pixel 6 XL.
