On Tuesday, Samsung started rolling out the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 beta update to the Galaxy S22 series. Back then, the update was made available only in South Korea. Today, the company has started rolling out the One UI 6.0 beta update to the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra in the UK, too.
The new software updates for the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra carry firmware versions S901BXXU6ZWIA, S906BXXU6ZWIA, and S908BXXU6ZWIA, respectively. The update brings a redesigned UI and a number of new features, which you can check out here. The new firmware also packs the September 2023 security patch. According to Samsung, the firmware does not support the Google Pay app. So, beware of that before installing the update on your Galaxy S22 series.
The update is available only for those devices that are enrolled in the One UI 6.0 Beta Program. You can register your Galaxy S22 in this program by going to the Samsung Members app and tapping on the One UI Beta Program banner. Once you do that, you can get the latest update by navigating to Settings » Software updates and tapping Download and install. Since this is a beta firmware, it might have various bugs that might hinder the standard functionality of your device.
Google is expected to release the final version of Android 14 before the end of next month. Once Google does that, expect Samsung to release the stable One UI 6.0 update for compatible Galaxy devices in the next couple of months. If you own other Galaxy devices, you can check out if they are eligible for the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update on this page.
