Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra’s OS journey ends with One UI 5 with no chance for One UI 6




Whenever a new software update is about to come, every user starts to wonder whether their device will be able to experience its advancements and novelties or not. As for now, ever since Android 14’s Developer Preview was launched, everybody has started to look forward to One UI 6. Besides the latest ones, confusion is appearing for those who are a bit older and received the previous One UI 5.

As we have mentioned above, older Galaxy device users are eager to know their device’s eligibility status for One UI 6. Two of these older devices are the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra. Informatively, the Galaxy Note 20 series was launched in the year 2020, with Android version 10. Both the devices of this series were promised to receive three years of OS updates, excluding the one they were launched with.

One UI 6.0 for Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra?

Notably, the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra device already received Android 13 and One UI 5. As they were launched with Android 10 and promised three OS updates, Android 13 was the final one for them. In simpler words, as these devices have already received all three OS updates, there is no way they will get the next one as they are out of eligibility. As One UI 6 will be based on Android 14, it also won’t reach them. 

To put it straight, the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra devices are meant to get neither the upcoming Android 14 nor Samsung’s 6th-gen One UI. However, they will still be receiving security patch updates till the pre-decided period. If you are a Galaxy Note 20 or Note 20 Ultra user and you don’t want to replace it with a new device, you can resort to some temporary solutions, which you can find here in our previous article
