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 Galaxy devices. As speculated, the Stable version of the One UI doesn’t look like Google’s Android 13 OS.
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.
Will my Samsung Galaxy get Android 13?
Usually, every Samsung phone and tablet is eligible for at least two major Android upgrades, while mid-rangers and older flagships for three upgrades and the latest flagships and select mid-rangers for up to four OS upgrades.
Incredibly, the South Korean tech giant has improved its software offerings for Galaxy consumers, which defeats Google itself. Well, Samsung officially disclosed which Galaxy devices will be getting four generations of Android upgrades that you can check below.

Samsung Galaxy Android 13 Release Date
Google released the official Android 13 operating system for Pixel smartphones on August 15, 2022, however, Samsung can’t beat the US tech giant when it comes to the fastest Android deployment.
Back in 2021, Samsung managed to start distributing the stable One UI 4.0 update for general Galaxy S21 series users just a month after the official Android 12 rollout for Google’s Pixel devices.
In 2022, things were a lot better as the Korean phone maker amazed consumers with an even boosted Android 13-based One UI 5 update distribution for the flagship Galaxy devices.
