    Galaxy M13 owners, rejoice! Your smartphone has now started getting the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 update. Right now, the update is rolling out to the Galaxy M13 (SM-M135F) across Europe, and we expect it to reach more countries before the end of this month. Samsung is surely living up to its promise of completing the Android 13 rollout to all eligible phones before the end of 2022.
