    One UI 6.0 test builds for Galaxy S23 spotted in Europe and India

    Firmware

    Aside from new device releases, major firmware updates are another thing that stirs up excitement among Samsung fans. And as many of you may have heard, Samsung is cooking up the One UI 6.0 update, which will likely debut on the Galaxy S23 series later this year. Until then, Samsung is expected to launch a beta program and invite Galaxy S23 users to participate in testing.

    The first One UI 6.0 internal testing firmware for the Galaxy S23 was spotted on Samsung's servers less than a week ago. And today, similar One UI 6.0 test builds have been discovered on Samsung's servers for Europe and India (via @tarunvats33). The test firmware carries build number S91xBXXU3ZWFA.

    When will users have access to the One UI 6.0 beta?

    To be precise, the test builds spotted on Samsung's servers over the past week aren't available for download. The beta program is not yet open, and no Galaxy S23 users can access these firmware versions. But the fact that they exist on Samsung's internal test servers confirms that the company is close to opening the beta program through its Members app.

    And in this case, these latest findings suggest that the One UI 6.0 beta program for the Galaxy S23 series should eventually open in Europe and India, among other regions such as South Korea and the USA.

    As for the question of when Samsung will release the open beta program, there's no concrete answer. The company rarely sets these things in stone, as there are many factors that could affect release plans for beta firmware. However, we're hearing that the Galaxy S23 series may enter the One UI 6.0 open beta testing phase in the third week of July.

    Until then, Samsung is also keeping busy with the One UI 5.1.1 update, which recently became available through a beta program for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Tab S8 tablets.
