There are various updates about Samsung One UI 5.0. In Germany, South Korea, and now the US, Samsung has begun rolling out its public beta built on Android 13. 

A variety of new One UI features and Android 13 features are combined in the most recent beta release. Look at the specifics.

Rolling out One UI 5.0 based on Android 13

The Galaxy S22 series, which includes the Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra, is receiving the One UI 5.0 update from Samsung. 

While South Korea uses the firmware version S90xNKSU2ZVH4, Germany uses S90xBXXU2ZVH4. Additionally, Samsung’s Community Forums have spread the information (1, 2).

There are several new features with the upgrade. One UI 5.0, according to the changelog, has new color schemes, stack widgets (compiling similar-sized widgets into one on the home screen), text extraction from photos, a new gesture for the split-screen experience, a histogram in the camera app’s Pro mode, and better DeX experience.

Additionally, you may modify the alerts, alter the lock screen image, and change the language for each app. 

There are also updates for Bixby, new augmented reality emoji stickers, additional GIF editing options, and many other things. For further information, see the changelog (via Imgur).

If you meet the requirements, you may enroll in the Samsung Beta program by selecting the One UI 5.0 beta banner in the Samsung Members app. The update may then be manually downloaded and tested.

You should be aware that Samsung hasn’t officially released information on One UI 5.0, and it’s unclear if this is a restricted beta release or will soon be made available to more users.

Furthermore, whether this will be extended to other Galaxy phones is unknown. More information is available on the Samsung Developers website.

It’s encouraging to see Samsung releasing the One UI 5.0 upgrade based on Android 13 since it suggests that the next update cycle will be on schedule. 

At its forthcoming Galaxy Unpacked presentation, which is slated for August 10, Samsung is anticipated to make all the specifics public. So it’s wise to hold off until we get more details.
