Samsung Android 14-based One UI 6.0: Everything you need to know



Samsung One UI 6.0

Android 14 (One UI 6.0) update will be a big deal for Samsung consumers having an eligible Galaxy smartphone or tablet. Android 12 brought radical user interface tweaks, which have been refined in the Android 13 update. And we hope the Android 14 will focus on performance and efficiency.

Samsung will introduce Android 14-based One UI 6.0 software for Galaxy devices this year. One UI is a mature software and the company is strictly maintaining the naming strategy. Galaxy fans can confirm that the next version will be One UI 6 as there’s no rocket science behind this.

One UI 6.0

Flagship Samsung devices ranging from the Galaxy S21 series to the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 foldables are eligible for the One UI 6.0 update, based on Android 14. In addition, there are a lot of Galaxy handsets launched with Android 12, which are also on the list!

One UI 6 is becoming the biggest reason forcing me to purchase the S23 Ultra, but, I’ll continue using my S22 Ultra as a daily driver. Upgrade to the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will be highly fruitful for me since Samsung won’t be taking much time to expand One UI 6 Beta for older models.

One UI 6.0 Features

All the Security and Privacy related features and improvements of Android 14 will be included with the One UI 6.0 update. Samsung doesn’t rely on Google’s Android when it comes to the user interface as Galaxies offer the best and clean user experience with One UI.

We are too away from the One UI 6’s tentative development timeline, but, Samsung should now work on app icons, stock launcher, quick settings panel, and notification panel. Most users want a radically renovated user interface in One UI, as it’s continuing with refinements and refinements.

Update: Apr. 21 | Samsung mod revealed that One UI 6.0 update will bring support for the Camera Assistant app to Galaxy A series smartphones.

One UI 6.0 Eligible devices

In the Galaxy Z series, Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4, Galaxy Z Flip 4, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are eligible for the new OS. In the Galaxy S series, the Galaxy S23 series will get One UI 6 first, however, it will also be rolled out to the Galaxy S22 series and Galaxy S21 series (FE included).

Samsung offers two major Android upgrades to every Galaxy device (from Galaxy A, M, and F lineups). It means, if your device launched with Android 12 out of the box, it will surely get the Android 14 upgrade. Some A series devices are also eligible for three OS upgrades, hence, check the complete list below:

One UI 6.0 Release Date

Within 2022, the company rolled out the One UI 5.0 update for almost all eligible Galaxy models. And February became a great month for flagship Galaxy devices that received the One UI 5.1 feature drop update. It’s difficult to commit release date of One UI 6.0, while the timeline should be early October.

Post completion of the One UI 5.0 rollout, Samsung promised that it will further strengthen its collaboration with chip makers (i.e. Qualcomm) and Google. As promised, this year, the company will try to deploy One UI even faster and more reliable software for Galaxy.

June 2023: Android 13 distribution reaches 15 percent, Samsung should be thanked



Android 13 Easter Egg

Google announced the Android 13 operating system in mid-August. Since then, Android vendors continue to distribute this new OS with compatible devices. In June 2023, Android 13 distribution reaches approx 15 percent, with Android 11 remains the most common version.

According to June 2023 data, Android 13 OS is now installed on approximately 15 percent of active devices across the world. The data arrives from Android Studio, an app development platform, mainly for developers so they can target audiences and make their apps optimized with the most used version.

Android Studio has now been updated with a chart dated May 30, 2023. Android 13 has seen another period of growth, rising from 12.1% in April to 14.7% in June. Meanwhile, Android 12, 11, and 10 have each seen slight declines, with Andorid 11 still powering 23.1 percent of global devices.

June 2023 Android 13 distribution

Samsung is the biggest smartphone maker, which is keeping Android rock solid. Apple’s iOS has a separate market, or we can say it is a fanbase, where is no competitor. However, there are a number of vendors who use Android, but Samsung should be thanked for a wider spread.

Currently, Android vendors are working on the Android 14 operating system’s development for their flagships. Samsung, on the other hand, is preparing to introduce the next-gen foldable phones by July, while the Android 14 Beta for Galaxy could go official in August.
