What’s new with Samsung Galaxy Android 13
Samsung introduced the Android 12-based One UI 4 software with no radical design and UI changes. However, Google did just the opposite as the Android 12 features the biggest user interface changes in history.
Similarly, Samsung is not bringing changes to the overall look of the One UI with the Android 13 upgrade for the Galaxy devices. For sure, the Stable version of the One UI won’t look like Google’s Android 13 operating system.
It’s expected that the final One UI 5 version, based on Android 13, will come with more meaningful design upgrades, improvements to the existing features/functions, new add-ons, better 3rd party app performance, and a lot more.
Google revealed several new features of the Android 13 operating system, and all of them will surely reflect with the One UI 5 upgrade for the Galaxy devices, at the same time, we don’t have any info regarding One UI 5 features.
On August 29, Samsung expanded the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 Beta program in China.
On August 25, Samsung released the One UI 5.0 Beta 2 with new icons and more changes.
On August 7, Samsung officially unveiled the One UI 5 Open Beta for the Galaxy S22 series smartphone users. At the same time, the company showcased a handful of highlighting features of the new Android 13 upgrade.

This year, things will be a lot better and we can surely assume that the Korean phone maker will amaze consumers with an even boosted Android 13-based One UI 5 update distribution for the flagship Galaxy devices.
Samsung might release the stable Android 13-based One UI 5.0 update to Galaxy S22 series devices in late October or early November, meanwhile, we are taking it as just a rumor until the vendor officially confirms.

Samsung guides how to fix One UI Home crashing issue on third One UI 5.0 Beta
Some of the Galaxy S22 One UI 5.0 Beta participants reported having crashing issues with One UI Home, better known as Samsung System Launcher. To be noted, the company has recently released the third One UI 5.0 Beta update for the Galaxy S22 smartphone users.
The Korean community’s moderator revealed that the One UI Home function is crashing because of the Good Lock’s Home Up module. To be specified, Galaxy S22 owners who use the Home Up app for homscreen customization are facing crashing issues with One UI Home after the third One UI 5.0 Beta installation.
Adding to this, the issues are not just limited to crashing the One UI Home as the homescreen folders are also behaving abnormally such as bouncing or not working on the first attempt. As of now, the company has just acknowledged the crashing issue, however, it will surely be fixed with Beta 4.
Meanwhile, the moderator shared a temporary fix for the issue through which you can get rid of the crashing error of homescreen. To do so, you will be needing to compromise with the Home Up app’s access for a few days as the moderator suggested to Uninstall the module.
After proceeding with Home Up uninstallation, you should reboot/restart your Galaxy device once for further system optimizations. In case the issue still persists even after uninstalling the Home Up module, owners are required to send the error log as the crashing reason may be something else then.
Stable One UI 5.0 update
On October 12, Samsung will introduce the new Android 13-based One UI 5.0 version at the Developer Conference. And we are dreaming that the company will start releasing the Stable Android 13 update to the Galaxy S22 series devices sometime in mid to late October.
