virtual cursor update

The screen size of smartphones is getting bigger and bigger. Earlier the screen size of most smartphones was between 3.5-inch to 5-inch maximum. But now things have changed and when you take a look at Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, it comes with a massive 6.9-inch screen. That’s a very big screen for a smartphone and becomes very hard for single-handed usage. Nowadays, we are required to use both our hands to operate our smartphones. The new ‘Virtual Cursor’ feature from Samsung on One UI is a solution for this.

Samsung is already having a One Hand Operations+ module on One UI. As per the recent report, a new update for One Hand Operations+ module gets a new feature called ‘Virtual Cursor’.

For starters, One Hand Operations+ module in One UI are some tools that will help the users to better use their smartphone single-handed.

Smartphones are only getting bigger and bigger, so Samsung introduced some software solutions for the same. The new ‘virtual cursor’ feature will add a new cursor on the top part of the screen and a section to control the cursor on the bottom half of the screen. This way users can use options on the top part of the display and control them from the bottom part itself. his will make one-handed usage way more simple and easier.

The update was first seen by XDA Developers and came with the version number 3.2.43. This will make life a whole lot easier for people using larger devices like Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra or Samsung Galaxy Note series.

Below you can see a screenshot with ‘virtual cursor’ in action.
