    Galaxy S22 One UI 5.0 or 4.1.1 firmware is now in development

    Firmware

    Samsung isn't due to launch the next major update for its smartphones for a few months. However, the signs have started appearing that the company has test firmware in development. This puts it on track to launch major new firmware updates in the near future.

    Potential test firmware that may be launched as One UI 5.0 or One UI 4.1.1 has now been spotted. These builds are in development for the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+ and the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

    Samsung is working on a major firmware update for the Galaxy S22 series

    These builds bear firmware version S901BXXU2BVE7, S906BXXU2BVE7, and S908BXXU2BVE7. This is going to be a One UI update for these devices, but it's unclear at this moment what the version will be.

    If it's to be launched as One UI 4.1.1, then we can expect this firmware to go live after the new foldable smartphones are released later this year. Samsung might introduce some new features with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4. Those One UI features would eventually trickle down to existing devices through a firmware update. It's pertinent to note here that a Samsung representative has confirmed that One UI 4.1.1 is going to arrive later this year.

    The One UI 5.0 upgrade will only arrive with Android 13. Samsung is yet to launch a beta program but we can expect that to happen in the second half of this year. The company did a pretty good job with its One UI 4.0 beta program last year, so we can expect it to show the same speed this time around.

    One UI 5.0 will undoubtedly be a major upgrade with several new features being added. We may also see some cosmetic changes being made to Samsung's custom skin. We should know more in the days to come precisely what One UI 5.0 is going to bring to the table.
