    Samsung’s working on stable One UI 6.0 firmware for Galaxy Z Fold 3

    Last month, the Samsung Community moderator in charge of Galaxy Z Flip and Z Fold software said the firmware development team aims to start distributing beta firmware for the Z Fold/Flip 3 and Z Fold/Flip 4 in October. Although the third-generation foldable phones have yet to show signs of joining the One UI 6.0 beta program, we have now found evidence that Samsung is developing the stable One UI 6.0 update for at least one of these devices.

    We came across new firmware on Samsung's servers, affirming that the company is testing One UI 6.0 for the Galaxy Z Fold 3. This unreleased update carries firmware version F926BXXU5GWJ3, and this string of letters and numbers pretty much confirms this isn't a beta update but one that, in theory, is aimed at the stable channel.

    Whether the GWJ3 update will be the first public One UI 6.0 build for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is debatable, but the takeaway is that Samsung is already working on a stable One UI 6.0 release for the Fold 3. And that's despite the fact that we have yet to see evidence of a beta build in develoment.

    One UI 6.0 will be a big leap for the Galaxy Z Fold 3

    Samsung's new One UI 6.0 update is full of new features and revamped UI elements. If the update aimed at the Galaxy Z Fold 3 won't miss out on any features, it will breathe new life into Samsung's aging foldable phone.

    One UI 6.0 comes with UI changes, big and small, from a new typeface called One UI Sans to redesigns across the quick toggle area, apps, and widgets. Multi-tasking, which is the name of the game for a Galaxy Z Fold device, is improved by One UI 6.0, particularly for the pop-up window feature. With One UI 6.0, pop-up windows are no longer completely minimized when accessing the Recents screen.

    Mobile photography, videography, and video and photo editing will also be elevated by One UI 6.0 through changes and additions like effects that are easier to apply, extra options for watermarks, better quality optimization, enhanced layouts, and more.

    The Galaxy Z Fold 3 will surely get One UI 6.0, but we'll have to wait and see when. The Galaxy S23 series appears to have the highest priority for the stable update, and the Z Fold 5 and Fold 4 series will probably beat the Fold 3 to the punch. Nevertheless, it's now become clearer that the update is on its way.
