    Minor UI change discovered in pre-release One UI 6.0 test firmware, allegedly

    Firmware

    Samsung began testing its Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update earlier this month. It's an early build to which nobody but Samsung engineers have access, but a new rumor claims to have uncovered one of the UI changes that are present in this One UI 6.0 pre-release firmware.

    Earlier this month, it was found that the company is testing One UI 6.0 on a handful of flagship phones. The list includes the Galaxy S23 series (S918BXXU1BWE2), the Galaxy Z Flip 4 (F721BXXU2DWD7), and the Galaxy Z Fold 4 (F936BXXU2DWE1).

    Now, a new rumor that may be a bit too ambitious to be taken at face value claims that this pre-release firmware brings at least one design change (via @tarunvats33). Namely, it makes the Quick Toggles in the notification shade bigger. There are no screenshots to prove this claim, and even if it is true, it's not that much of an exciting UI change.

    Nevertheless, One UI 6.0 should bring more UI changes in general, so if Samsung intends to enlarge the quick toggles, this will be one minor UI tweak of many.

    When will Samsung release One UI 6.0

    One UI 6.0 doesn't yet have an official release schedule, but the company is certainly working on the firmware behind closed doors. And judging by Samsung's release schedule for One UI 5.0 last year, the One UI 6.0 public beta program could go live around August.

    The first flagship to gain access to the beta will be the Galaxy S23 series. After that, Samsung may expand the beta to more devices, including the Galaxy S22 series, the latest foldable phones, and even the Galaxy A53 and/or A54.

    Samsung should be ready to release the first stable One UI 6.0 build later in the year, possibly around September. These dates have not been confirmed, but the next One UI update's release schedule could mirror last year's.
