how to download and install fonts on Samsung One UI 4 and 4.1 firmware update

Samsung just recently launched new flagship phones and tablets under Galaxy S22 series and the Galaxy Tab S8 series. These new devices feature Samsung’s latest One UI 4.1 firmware update. While One UI 4.1 is still based on Android 12, it comes with tons of new features and updated Samsung apps with more features on top of the One UI 4.0.

Samsung also recently started rolling out One UI 4.1 update to the older Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy S20 series, Note 20 series, Galaxy S10, and the Note 10 series phones. The OEM also promised the same for several Samsung S-series, Note-series, and Fold-series devices in the upcoming months in the recent press release here.

As for the features, the One UI 4.1 update features improved Color Palette (similar to Material You visuals), Google Duo Live Sharing, Smart Switch with advanced configurations, Smart Widgets, feature to share Wi-Fi credentials with Quick Share, and Smart Suggestions across the system.

Some of the best features of the update are the Shadow Eraser as well as Reflection Eraser baked into the Gallery app. This is similar to the Magic Eraser feature from the Google Photos app. The stock camera app also gets updated with enhanced night portraits to take stunning portraits in low light. The Samsung camera app also got a tweaked user interface and added the full director’s view mode!

Custom Fonts for Samsung

In addition to this, Samsung’s Good Lock 2022 support for One UI 4 based Android 12 OS is the best part. The only thing missing, in my opinion, is the support for custom Fonts. It’s long overdue and the Font installer apps listed below work flawlessly with the latest One UI version.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to download and install any font on your Samsung Galaxy device running One UI 4.1/4.0 firmware update. It also works on previous One UI 3.0, 2.5, 2.1, 1.0 based on Android 11, 10, 9 Pie, or earlier. You can install any font using a .TTF file format. This includes Google Sans, Roboto, Product Sans, Rubik (which we use on our site), and much more.

In our previous posts, we already published a tutorial on how to install Google Sans Font for Samsung Galaxy devices. However, that was a little complicated. Here is an easier way to do so.

Thanks to projects like Flipfont and zFont 3, installing ay font or even a .TTF font on any Samsung device is now possible. So you can fonts on Galaxy S21, S20, Note 20, Note 10/10+, S10, and more.

As for the previous One UI 1.0 or Samsung Experience firmware, our previous post on Wings fonts works perfectly on Samsung phones with Android 9 Pie or earlier such as the Galaxy S8 series or the Note 8 series. However, if you are inclined, you can also use the following method to get Google Sans font.

Step 1: Download Font TTF File

The zFont 3 and FlipFont apps that we are going to use have a collection of free fonts. You can use stock fonts listed in the app like the Samsung Sans or the 1800+ stock Flip Fonts.

However, it also supports installation of custom fonts using .TTF files. So it is very important that you download fonts from the web in .TTF format only.

Here we have listed the most popular fonts in the Android community. One such font is the Google Sans font (upgraded Product Sans Font) exclusive to the Pixel smartphones.

Download unlimited fonts from the web

The internet has tons of font collections. A simple Google search should get you started. However, for convenience, we are listing some font repositories for ease.

Note for Fount: Drag and drop the “Fount” button in the browser’s bookmark. Then visit a webpage and click on the Fount button in your bookmark bar and select any text to find the font.
