BREAKING: One UI 5.0 beta program now live for the Galaxy Z Fold 2!

Last updated: October 19th, 2022 at 10:10 UTC+02:00

With Samsung inching closer to beginning the public rollout of the Android 13 and One UI 5.0 update for the Galaxy S22 series phones, the company has been extending the One UI 5.0 beta program to more and more devices this week. Those included the company’s latest foldables, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Z Flip 4, and now, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is joining the party.

Samsung has kicked off the One UI 5.0 beta program for the Galaxy Z Fold 2. It is live in South Korea at this time, but more markets, such as the USA, should be getting it in the coming days. Interested Galaxy Z Fold 2 customers can sign up for the beta program by clicking the One UI 5 beta program banner in the Samsung Members app and following instructions.

Once enrolled, the first Galaxy Z Fold 2 One UI 5.0 beta update should be available for download over the air a few minutes later from the Settings » Software update menu. Should you decide to install the beta, do keep in mind that there will be some bugs and issues that are part and parcel of unfinished software. Also, if you decide to move back to Android 12 (which can be done using Samsung’s Smart Switch app), your device will have to be factory reset, so backing up your important data is recommended.

Android 13/One UI 5.0, which will be the last major upgrade for the Galaxy Z Fold 2, brings a slew of new features, including some extensive lock screen customization options. We’ve taken multiple deep dives into One UI 5.0 on our YouTube channel, and the videos embedded below should give you a good sense of everything you can expect with the update.
