Samsung surprised some Galaxy S22 owners who were using the Android 14/One UI 6 beta firmware with the stable update on November 16. Now, that update has arrived on Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra units that are running Android 13, which is to say a general rollout for the masses has started, starting with the European region.
The stable Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update for the Galaxy S22 series has started rolling out in Europe, and some users from the Netherlands have confirmed this to us. As always, it will be a staged rollout, so the update will not be available in every country on day one. Samsung will take a few weeks to make One UI 6.0 available for all Galaxy S22 owners worldwide. The new update comes with firmware version S908BXXUDWK4, and it has a download size of around 3.1GB. The update also features the November 2023 security patch.
If you have a Galaxy S22 series smartphone and if you live in Europe, you can now start checking for the new update on your device. To do that, navigate to Settings » Software update and tap Download and install. This is the second big Android OS update for the Galaxy S22 series. It debuted with Android 12 onboard in early 2022 and received the Android 13 update late last year. Samsung promised to release four major Android OS updates to the Galaxy S22 series, and it has delivered two of them. In the future, it will get the Android 15 update in late 2024 and the Android 16 update in late 2025.
The Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update brings several new features and design improvements, including improved stock apps, a completely new design for the Quick Panel, better notifications UI, a new media player widget in the notifications area, a new font, and a completely new emojis. It also brings several lock screen clock font styles, placement options, and size options. To check all the new features that come with the One UI 6.0 update, watch our in-depth video below.
