Update: It's looking like Samsung might release the One UI 6.0 beta update for the Galaxy S23 series later. At this juncture, it seems more likely that the beta program will welcome participants after the Galaxy Unpacked event concludes on July 26. As yet, there's no concrete date for the beta.
Original story follows
Samsung fans have been waiting patiently to get a taste of Android 14. Google released the developer beta of the next major iteration earlier this year. Since Samsung has its own beta program, users have to wait for the One UI 6.0 beta to arrive.
The company's beta program may be beginning sooner rather than later this year. We hear that the One UI 6.0 beta for the Galaxy S23 series will start rolling out in the 3rd week of July. Other compatible devices will receive the beta soon thereafter.
Time to start counting down the days for the One UI 6.0 beta!
We reported a few days ago that it's possible that the first One UI 6.0 beta update may be released as soon as the Android 14 betas achieve stability. With Android 14 Beta 3, the software has now reached Platform Stability level, meaning that Samsung can now go ahead and launch its beta program.
The company has already been laying the groundwork for this. It started updating apps with One UI 6.0 support a few weeks ago. It's a great sign for people who own Samsung One UI 6.0 compatible devices that they'll soon be able to experience the latest Android and One UI version.
Based on what we hear, it's likely that Samsung will release the first One UI 6.0 beta build for the Galaxy S23 series in the third week of July. The beta will gradually be rolled out for other devices as well. July is shaping up to be a busy month for Samsung as the company will also be unveiling its new foldable phones on July 27.
The One UI 6.0 beta launch in late July means that we're definitely looking at a One UI 6.0 public release before the end of this year. If last year's pace is any indication, Samsung may not make us wait more than a couple of months from the time the beta is rolled out to the final public release.
As always, we'll dive deep into all the new changes as soon as we're able to test the One UI 6.0 beta. Stay tuned!
