Samsung's Good Lock modules prep exciting new features in anticipation of One UI 3.1.1

Back in June, Samsung's Good Lock module NiceCatch confirmed the existence of One UI 3.1.1 by mentioning it in its changelog.

While we may get fewer new features in favor of optimizations and bug fixes, the big release is still a little further out — One UI 4 based on Android 12, later this year.

Today, several weeks ahead of schedule, Samsung has started to distribute Good Lock 2021, bringing all-new features and restoring some old ones.
