Here’s when Samsung will start Stable Android 13 One UI 5.0 update rollout



Seamless Updates Samsung

On August 15, Google released the Android 13 update for Pixel devices, while Samsung started the One UI 5.0 Beta testing program for the Galaxy devices earlier this month. Google confirmed that the stable Android 13 update coming to your Galaxy devices “later this year.”

Samsung will surely start bringing the Android 13 update as One UI 5.0 to some eligible Galaxy devices later this year. Meanwhile, the company has already showcased most of the new features of this major upgrade including stackable widgets, more Color Palettes, optional call backgrounds for each contact, and much more.

Samsung Android 13 Release Date?

As always, Samsung has not shared the release date of the Galaxy Android 13 update. Well, we can accurately speculate when will Samsung release the One UI 5.0 update atop the Android 13 OS for the qualified Galaxy devices, thanks to records of past rollouts.

Let’s have a look at the recent past:

On October 4, 2021, the US tech giant seeded the Android 12 update for Pixel devices and Samsung bring it to the Galaxy devices as One UI 4.0 in mid-November. Well, the OEM was not able to run the rollout seamlessly as bugs and issues forced it to stop update delivery, which later on resumed in December.

Aside from this, the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update took nearly three months to start rolling out for the flagship Samsung devices after the official debut of the base OS version. Seeing the big development with Android 12, we can expect that the company will start providing Android 13 to its flagships starting October this year.

Similar to previous rollouts, the South Korean tech giant will first upgrade its flagship Galaxy smartphones and then tablets. Later on, the company will gradually push the One UI 5.0 update to mid-range and budget phones in different markets globally.
