Samsung is rolling out an update to the Galaxy F23 5G in India that brings the Android 13 OS along with One UI 5.0 customizations. The update has firmware version E236BXXU1BVL1 and a download size of around 2.7GB.
This update includes the November 2022 security patch, rather than the current month’s patch. It’s worth noting that Samsung often releases updates with older security patches alongside new versions of Android, and then releases a separate update with the latest security patch at a later date.
The Galaxy F23 is listed in Samsung’s quarterly update schedule, so it’s expected to receive the next security update in Q1 2023.
How to Install the One UI 5.0 Update on Your Galaxy F23

New Features and Improvements in One UI 5.0
One UI 5.0 brings a number of new features and improvements to the Galaxy F23, including a refreshed UI design with dynamic app icons that adapt to the color of your home screen wallpaper, smooth animations, and improved transition effects. There are also new blur effects throughout the UI and a range of customization options, such as the ability to set different clock styles and notification settings on the lock screen, as well as live previews. You can also choose from 16 different color palettes for the UI and set a different call background for each contact.
Extract Text From Images or Live Feed
One of the standout features of the new update is the ability to extract text from images or the camera’s live feed. For example, if you point your camera at a business card, the feature can recognize and extract the name, contact details, and address on it.
Context-Based Actions Suggested by Software
Even more useful is the fact that the software will suggest actions you can take based on the context of the information it extracts. For instance, if it recognizes a phone number, it will give you the option to call or text the contact.
