It’s that time of the year when everyone is excited about the next big Android upgrade to arrive on their phones. Or rather, given how quick Samsung has worked this year, it’s almost time for the next Android upgrade — Android 13, with Samsung’s One UI 5.0 skin on top — to start rolling out publicly for at least the Galaxy S22 series, with many others slated to get it before before 2023.
For now, though, Samsung is busy beta testing One UI 5.0 on many of its devices. In the third week of October alone, Samsung has launched the beta program for numerous devices, including new phones like the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and relatively older ones like the Galaxy Z Fold 2, and it can get confusing trying to figure out whether the beta program is available for your Galaxy smartphone.
Well, we’re here to help. We’ve compiled a list of every Samsung Galaxy phone that has been included in the One UI 5.0 beta program so you can find out if the beta is available for your device.
Samsung Galaxy phones getting One UI 5.0 beta updates
- Galaxy S22 series (stable update released)
- Galaxy S21 series
- Galaxy Z Fold 4
- Galaxy Z Fold 3
- Galaxy Z Fold 2
- Galaxy Z Flip 4
- Galaxy Z Flip 3
- Galaxy Z Flip/Z Flip 5G
- Galaxy S20
- Galaxy Note 20
- Galaxy A52
Enrolling into the program and downloading the beta update involves registering in the Samsung Members app first (look for the One UI 5 beta banner and hit the Enrol button) and then going into Settings » Software update on the device and hitting the download button. Keep in mind that these beta programs are limited to certain regions, such as the UK, Germany, Poland, the USA, China, and India.
If you don’t see any banner in Samsung Members, you can assume that your market doesn’t have the beta available, in which case you’ll have to wait for the official public release. In some cases, you may be able to register for the beta program but the actual first beta update will take a few days to appear on your phone.
As more devices get One UI 5.0, we will update the list accordingly. The same goes when a device’s beta period is over and they get the official update; we will remove that specific phone from the list when that happens. So, don’t forget to bookmark this page and check back regularly!
