When Samsung will roll out One UI 6.0 Beta update?
The Stable One UI 6.0 update for Galaxy devices is expected to start rolling out in October 2023. Although, Samsung might take around 3 months to gain the stability milestone through Beta testing. If the OEM somehow starts the Beta program by August 2023, the official One UI 6.0 rollout might begin in October.
Interestingly, Samsung started the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 Beta Program in early August last year. With a short delay, the company rolled out the official One UI 5.0 firmware in late October and quickly expanded to various models within a month. It is tipped that Samsung might not make people wait too long for the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 Beta preview.
