Samsung is preparing to launch the final version of One UI 6.0 beta for the Galaxy S23 series. The update is based on Android 14 and is expected to fix issues that users encountered in the previous beta updates.
One UI 6.0 has been undergoing beta testing for several weeks, with users providing feedback and reporting bugs. Samsung has been releasing new beta versions to fix the issues and optimize the software. The final One UI 6 Beta (Beta 9) version is expected to be released this week for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, according to a community moderator.
The moderator has also revealed that the team is doing a thorough final check on the errors in the previous versions. If there are any significant errors, the company will publish a new version and adjust the launch date accordingly. However, Samsung is working hard to release the official version as soon as possible.
Samsung has not announced the exact date of the official release of One UI 6.0, but it is expected to be next week as the company already started preparations. Users who are enrolled in the One UI Best program will be the first to receive the update, followed by other users in different regions.
