Don’t wait for One UI 6 on these Samsung smartphones



Samsung Galaxy

It’s not possible for any smartphone maker to provide users with never-ending software support. With Android 13, various Galaxy devices ended major upgrade support, and the same case will happen with One UI 6 for some popular Samsung smartphones.

Preparation to deliver 2023’s Android version is already underway by Google. While Pixel users have started experiencing the Android 14 OS through the Beta Program, Samsung didn’t see that side. However, the company is running the One UI Beta Program, which started on August 10.

This year, popular Samsung flagships such as Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20 series won’t receive the One UI 6. Both lineups have finished their striking era of continuous software upgrades, still, an additional year of security patches is remaining.

Samsung has always remained the king of after-sales services to Galaxy consumers. Presently, the company provides up to four years of major OS upgrades, which will be extended further for the time being. It has also raised the bar of security updates to five years, letting consumers keep their phones longer.

Citing sadly, but don’t wait for One UI 6 on these Samsung smartphones:

  1. Galaxy S20
  2. Galaxy S20 Plus
  3. Galaxy S20 Ultra
  4. Galaxy S20 FE LTE/5G
  5. Galaxy Z Flip – LTE/5G
  6. Galaxy Note20
  7. Galaxy Note20 Ultra
  8. Galaxy Z Fold2 5G

Sizzling era ends at 5.1

Samsung delivered the One UI 5.1 upgrade to all flagship smartphones upgraded to the Android 13-based One UI 5.0. The new version means more new features, and there’s no exception with the One UI 5.1 software system.

Customization is at its peak level on the One UI 5.1 and the upgraded capabilities of Good Lock (and family) make you wow! Screenshots no longer collide with photos captured by the camera and creating a cutout of the object is as simple as copying a text!
