Last updated: August 5th, 2022 at 13:48 UTC+02:00

You may have heard by now that Samsung is finally rolling out the One UI 5.0 beta. The first beta build has been released in Germany today for the Galaxy S22 series. We’ve got it up and running on a Galaxy S22 Ultra.

So here’s your first look at the official One UI 5.0 beta firmware for Samsung’s flagship device. There’s plenty of screenshots here that give you a great idea of all the cosmetic changes Samsung has made to its latest iteration of One UI.

First look at One UI 5.0 on the Galaxy S22 Ultra

Earlier leaks had given us a good idea of what to expect from One UI 5.0. There doesn’t seem to be much in the way of new features. However, the company has made some minor cosmetic changes that make the UI feel more modern and sleek.

For example, everything looks just a touch more refined on the lock screen. From the rounded corners for the notifications to the opacity and softer graphics, it’s not a total revamp but different enough that you instantly notice the difference.

The updated notifications center gives a similar vibe with the rounded notifications. Samsung has also made the icons larger which will certainly improve usability. The clever use of opacity adds an element of openness to the UI. That’s something many fans will appreciate.

We’ll continue to dive deeper into One UI 5.0 and bring you detailed information about everything that’s new with Samsung’s next major update. This is also our first chance to take Android 13 for a spin on a Galaxy device. So it will be interesting to see which Android 13 features have made the cut.

You can expect the One UI 5.0 beta to go live in more markets across the globe in the near future. Samsung will also be opening it up to more devices, possibly including the Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip foldables. Interested in joining? Here’s how you can get the One UI 5.0 beta.
