Samsung Android 14 One UI 6.0 Ineligible Device List
For any smartphone maker, it’s not possible to provide users with never-ending software support. With Android 13, various Samsung devices ended major upgrade support, and the same happened with One UI 6.0 for a handful of Samsung smartphones.
This year, popular Samsung smartphones such as Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20 series won’t receive the One UI 6.0. 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:
- Galaxy S20
- Galaxy S20 Plus
- Galaxy S20 Ultra
- Galaxy S20 FE LTE/5G
- Galaxy Z Flip – LTE/5G
- Galaxy Note20
- Galaxy Note20 Ultra
- 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!
Exynos is not rebranding but Dream Chip indeed exists, Samsung states
Recently, it was rumored that Samsung is going to rebrand Exynos as Dream Chip. In a recent development, it has been reported that Samsung Semiconductor disclosed Exynos is not rebranding to Dream Chip anytime soon.
In addition, the company’s semiconductor decision revealed that Dream Chip is an internal project name. Earlier, Samsung formed a Dream Team to research a chipset tailor-made for flagship Galaxy devices.
If Dream Chip is an internal project name, the existence of a Galaxy-exclusive chipset just confirmed. However, it will take time for the company to finally commercialize the processor on Galaxy smartphones.
“All rumors regarding rebranding are not true,” Samsung Semiconductor told us in response to AndroidAuthority’s follow-up question.
Stable One UI 6.0 is on the way for Samsung Galaxy A52s
Samsung has been working to roll out the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update for more eligible Galaxy devices. At the moment, a new One UI 6 testing build has appeared for the Galaxy A52s 5G smartphone on the Checkfirm platform.
According to a report by @tarunvats33, the new One UI 6 testing build for Samsung Galaxy A52s has been spotted on Samsung’s internal test server in India. This means that the Korean tech giant could soon start pushing the official One UI 6.0 update to the Galaxy A52s.
The firmware version of the testing build is A528BXXU5FWK8, which indicates that Samsung is almost ready to roll out the stable version of One UI 6.0 for the Galaxy A52s 5G users in India.
One UI 6 is based on Android 14, which is the latest version of Google’s operating system. It brings new features such as Material You design, a privacy dashboard, scrolling screenshots, and more. Samsung also adds its own tweaks and enhancements to One UI 6, such as redesigned widgets, improved camera app, enhanced dark mode, and more.
