Samsung will reportedly release its first Android 13-based One UI 5.0 beta update for Galaxy S22 series this week. The new OS will bring multiple new and improved features. Alongside these, we’ll also see a set of new emojis, and luckily, you can now download and use those One UI 5.0 emojis on your Android device.
Every year, Samsung introduces a bunch of new emojis with the release of its One UI. This year too, the company continues to follow the same path with the Android 13-based One UI 5.0.
Thanks to XDA forums who have managed to bring the all-new One UI 5.0 emojis. Not only Samsung but any Android device owner who has root access can download, install and start using these emojis ahead of the official release and you don’t need Android 13 for this.
According to the information, Samsung One UI 4 which is based on Android 12 contains the emoji designs from Unicode Emoji 13.1 set that was approved in September 2020. While the forthcoming One UI 5.0’s emojis are based on September 2021’s Unicode Emoji 14.0.

How to download Samsung One UI 5.0 emojis:
You can use the One UI 5.0 emojis on your rooted Android phone by flashing a specially crafted Magisk module. This will replace the emoji font file of the device in a “systemless” manner, having one containing the new emojis that will make an appearance in One UI 5.0.
Here’s how to download:
- First, make sure your Android device is rooted with the latest version of Magisk.
- Download the Magisk module for the One UI 5 emoji pack from the author’s thread (linked below).
- If you’ve downloaded it on a PC or a Mac, then connect your Android device to it and copy the downloaded ZIP file to the internal memory of the target device.
- Open the Magisk app on your phone and switch to the Modules tab using the bottom navigation menu.
- Tap on the button named Install from storage.
- Browse and select the module ZIP you downloaded earlier.
- Magisk will now install the module and prompt you to restart it.
- After rebooting, open the Magisk app once again and take a look at the Modules tab. The One UI 5 emoji module you flashed should be listed under the Installed section.
- Open the keyboard and check out the new emojis.
It should be mentioned that many social media apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, Telegram, Discord, etc have their own emoji styles therefore, these apps might not reflect the new emojis. The One UI 5.0 emoji style is only visible on those UI segments, which use the OS-specific emoji font
In any case, when you need to restore your old emojis, you can simply uninstall the Magix module followed by a reboot.
