Last month, Google delivered the first Android 14 Developer Preview for Pixel users while the Beta program is expected to go live at its I/O 2023 event. Samsung, on the other hand, may begin the One UI 6.0 Beta Program for eligible Galaxy devices sometime after the official launch of the new operating system.
Obviously, Samsung’s latest Galaxy S23 series will be the first to get the One UI 6.0 Beta update. Later on, the company will expand the Beta testing program to the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S21 series along with the upcoming and older foldable smartphones.
The Stable One UI 6.0 update would start rolling out in October 2023, with Samsung may take about three months to gain the stability milestone through its Beta testing. In case the company manages to begin the Beta program by August, we may see the official One UI 6.0 rollout by October.
Last year, the South Korean tech giant started the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 Beta program in early August. With a quite short delay, the company managed to deploy the official One UI 5.0 firmware in late October and rapidly expanded to several models within a month.
We believe, Samsung may not make us wait too long for the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 Beta preview. Timeline aside, the Beta program may be available for a number of Galaxy devices, with some mid-range Galaxy A and M series would be included.
Samsung One UI 6.0 Beta Galaxy Devices:
- S23, S23 Plus and S23 Ultra
- S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra
- Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4
- S21, S21 Plus and S21 Ultra
- Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3
- Availability may be limited to select markets.
- The list is based on the previous rollout and Samsung’s software strategy.
- Select A and M series phones may also get access to the One UI 6.0 Beta program.
