Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra

Samsung has debuted the sequel of the Galaxy S22 Ultra, but I’m still rocking with it. Meanwhile, One UI 6 is becoming the biggest reason forcing me to buy the Galaxy S23 Ultra, or vanilla or Plus. Of course, the S23 series comes pre-loaded with One UI 5.1, but, it will be the first receiver of One UI 6.

Two days ago, Google revealed the Android 14 development program (check features) and published DP1 build. As per the schedule, the Android 14 OS would reach Platform Stability level 1 and 2 by June and July, respectively. Consequently, Pixel users will start getting Stable Android 14 sometime in August.

Various non-Google OEMs such as OnePlus and Xiaomi would start bringing the Android 14 for testing to their flagship handsets when the new OS reaches the Public Beta timeline. Meanwhile, Galaxy users have to wait until the Android 14 goes live for Public, leaving the Beta testing.

Samsung, on the other hand, will wait a little bit more to let Google finalize Android 14. Once done, the Galaxy device users will be able to install the new OS on top of the next iteration of One UI. Hopefully, One UI 6 Beta testing would begin by late July or early August this year.

Why, Galaxy S23 Ultra?

Samsung’s best smartphone technology can be seen in the Ultra flagship of the Galaxy S series. This year, the S23 line solely uses Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy processor. This chip is produced by TSMC after the fruitful collaboration of Samsung and Qualcomm.

Qualcomm just revealed that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy is its fastest Snapdragon chipset, which powers only the Galaxy S23 series. Since the hardware is all set to deliver epic experiences, Samsung’s next major upgrade will surely make fruitful improvements in history.

Seeing the smoothness and extra features of One UI 5.1, I can’t stop thinking about the One UI 6, based on Android 14. It’s far away from us, but still, my madness toward Samsung’s excellent One UI is not hidden from anyone. And as the first step to coming closer to One UI 6 is to have an S23 Ultra.

Galaxy S20 was the first to get Beta and Stable update of One UI 3.0, and the same happened with Galaxy S21 for One UI 4.0 and Galaxy S22 Ultra for One UI 5.0. And naturally, the Galaxy S23 series will be the first to get invited for One UI 6 Beta testing, followed by Stable rollout.

What do you think about One UI 6? Would Samsung amaze us with One UI this year, let me know through social media!

Samsung always on display issue fix

After the recent One UI 6.1 update, several Samsung users have reported an issue with the Always On Display (AOD) feature when using LockStar. This issue displays clock numbers or apps overlap during the transition of time on the lock screen.

The issue is particularly noticeable when the time shifts in minutes and apps. For example, a user reported when the time progresses from 11:57 to 11:58, it results in the digits superimposing and creates a confusing display.

Several Galaxy users are affected by this issue, and the issue persists despite subsequent firmware updates. The overlapping issue on Always On Display after One UI 6.1 is not only a rare occurrence but happens frequently enough to cause significant concern among users.

In response, a community moderator has acknowledged the One UI 6.1 overlapping AOD issue. He stated that it occurs for those using the “Automatically Restart” function and confirmed a software update to resolve this issue.

However, due to the variable nature of software update schedules, a precise resolution date cannot be provided.
