Samsung Galaxy S22 June 2023 update Brazil

In early June 2023, a Samsung app update changelog teased the unreleased One UI 6.0 software. Google started working on the new Android 14 operating system in early February, with an official release scheduled for August this year.

There are a lot of Samsung devices eligible for the Android 14-based One UI 6 upgrade. And thanks to Samsung’s software rollout history, it’s quite easy to figure out which Galaxy phones will be the first to receive the One UI 6 firmware update this year.

Samsung’s Galaxy S23 series is first in line to receive the new One UI 6 update as soon as the official unveiling happens at SDC 2023, sometime in October. However, the S23 series and select more models will be invited in Beta activity to test the OS before release.

    • S23, S23 Plus and S23 Ultra
  • Galaxy S22 Series

In the list we mentioned above, there’s an exclusivity of flagship devices, why not? The South Korean tech giant will first roll out the Android 14 to newer flagships, followed by older flagship models and mid-range ones. Along with them, select budget models will also join the party with new updates.

Congrats if you have an eligible Galaxy S or Galaxy Z series smartphone for One UI 6.0 software. Samsung will let you install the new OS, starting from August 2023, if it follows the same timeframe as the last year. You can check all One UI 6.0 eligible devices here.

Android 14 to revolutionize the Stylus (S Pen) user experience



Android 14 Stylus S Pen

Samsung devices that support S Pen will get benefitted from the Android 14 update. Google is testing new features in the new OS version in order to improve user experience. So far, Google didn’t have any device that supports stylus input, but the arrival of the Pixel Tablet will change things this time.

Android 14 is testing stylus-related functions, which will be reflected in the stable release. Mishaal Rahman shared some user interface images, showcasing that the new OS has a few key improvements in store for new settings, default apps, and multiple buttons.

Following the latest update, when you connect a stylus to your device on Android 14 and go to the “device details” page, you’ll be able to see new stylus-specific settings, which includes a shortcut to change the “default notes app” and a toggle to “ignore all stylus button presses.”

Android 14 Stylus S Pen

In addition to the dedicated user interface, the company has more improvements for the Stylus section. It looks like Android 14 to bring better support for multiple buttons on a stylus, including “Primary,” “Secondary,” “Teriary,” and “Tail.”

To be mentioned, there is a specific message about the “tail” button not generally corresponding “to the function of an eraser.” Instead, a message in OS mentions setting a default app for notes, which hints this button might be used for launching your notes app of choice.

As Samsung devices run Android OS-based One UI, select products will also get the bells and whistles, similar to Wear OS and One UI Watch. The Android 14 rollout will begin for Galaxy phones and tablets later this year, while the Beta for flagships launching next month.
