    Yesterday, Samsung started the official rollout of the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update. The new software hit the Galaxy S23 first and is expected to come to more high-end smartphones first before rolling out to mid-range and entry-level devices. The company unveiled new camera and gallery-related One UI 6.0 features in its article and mentioned the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy S20 in that post. So, will these devices get the Android 14 update?

    Will Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy S20 get Android 14 update as Samsung mentioned?

    No, the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy S20 won't get the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update. Although Samsung mentioned those devices in its One UI 6-related article on its website, those devices will only get some Galaxy Enhance-X features. In the footnotes of the article, Samsung mentioned that Galaxy Enhance-X features it mentioned in the article will come to devices running One UI 6.0 (or above), including the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy Note 20. However, that was most likely a mistake on Samsung's part when it came to the wording of the sentence mentioned below:

    Available on Galaxy S23 series, S22 series, S21 series, S20 series, Note20 series, Z Fold5, Z Flip5, Z Fold4, Z Flip4, Z Fold3, Z Flip3, Z Fold2, Z Flip 5G and Z Flip LTE, A54, and A53 devices operating on One UI 6.0 or above.

    You can watch our in-depth One UI 6.0 video below to learn all the new features and design improvements the new update brings.

    Samsung only promised three major Android OS updates when it launched the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy Note 20 back in 2020. Since those devices came with Android 10 pre-installed, they received three updates: Android 11, Android 12, and Android 13. While Samsung improved its software update support to four years of Android OS updates with the Galaxy S21 series, the same wasn't announced for the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy S20.

    So, don't get your hopes high about getting the official Android 14 update for your Galaxy Note 20 or Galaxy S20 series smartphone. We will reach out to Samsung for further clarification on this matter, so stay tuned to this article and our website.
