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.

The Public One UI 5 version, based on Android 13, brings 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.

Samsung Galaxy A51 5G at Metro by T-Mobile gets Android 13 (One UI 5) update
Metro by T-Mobile starts rolling out long-awaited Android 13-based One UI 5.0 update to the Samsung Galaxy A51 5G smartphone. T-Mobile delivered this major firmware update to the A51 5G about two weeks ago, and this short delay benefits a newer security patch.
According to info (via Redditor LightningLuisYT2), Samsung Galaxy A51 5G at Metro by T-Mobile started to receive Android 13-based One UI 5.0 features. The latest build carries PDA version number A516USQUBGWB3 and the latest February 2023 Android security patch.
Sadly, the Android 13 is the last major firmware update for the Galaxy A51. The device came pre-installed with Android 10-based One UI 2.x and upgraded with Android 11 and Android 12 in the past two years. Meanwhile, your device may get another year of security update support from Samsung.
Over the Android 12, the Android 13 brings major refinements, while Samsung included the One UI 5.0 with it. This combination takes your Galaxy device to a whole new level. There’s plenty to explore in One UI 5.0 such as new visual design, improved animations along with a lot of new features.
Talking about visual changes, icon symbols are larger for a bolder look that’s easier to scan. Subtle background gradients and improved contrast give a fresher, more natural feel. New help illustrations have been created to give a consistent look to all apps.
One UI 5 is the smoothest Android skin in Samsung’s history, which was further refined with One UI 5.1. New animations and transition effects make switching between screens feel more natural. Besides, the scrolling speed has been enhanced to make scrolling feel smoother throughout One UI.
For personalization, the One UI 5 brings great new tools so you can get tasks done in just a few taps. Just touch and hold the Lock screen to edit. Customize your wallpaper, clock style, notification settings, and more, with live preview, all in one place alongside a new wallpaper section!
