One UI 5.1 is the last major update for these Samsung Galaxy devices

Samsung Galaxy devices always get innovative features that put them ahead of other Android devices. This is all possible due to the skin version that comes in the form of One UI update. Currently, the Korean giant is running its Galaxy devices on One UI 5.1, which is the latest software available for eligible devices. With every new skin upgrade, Samsung always tries to give a big change to its devices in the form of new features and innovative UI. This time Galaxy users are many exciting changes; let us explore them.

The One UI 6.0 could be a significant update for Samsung devices, including Smartphones and Tablets; it is expected that the update may carry big improvements for enhancing the performance of the device, the security of the device should be more strong, and the new color option for better customizations, capability to increase the text size by 200%, seamless optimization for different aspect ratios(for foldable devices) and many more before going to the list let’s check out what is running in Android 14 development.

Notification flashes: The notification flashes feature is very useful for those people who usually check their phones in a noisy environment or are differently abled with improper hearing; they can easily detect any notification by seeing the flash notification.

Photo picker: Now, whenever any app asks you for permission to access the photos, you will have one more option to take action, i.e., selected photos; by choosing this option, you can choose the photos which should be accessed by the app.

Lock Screen Customizations: Google has announced the lock screen customization feature in the I/O 2023. This feature gives the ability to make changes on the lock screen; for instance, you can change the clock style and customize quick links.

Android 14 and One UI 6.0 availability

The current cycle of Android 14 development is running seamlessly. All the software updates came on time, such as Developer Preview 1 being available in February then, the second preview coming in March, then Beta 1 and Beta 2 in April and May, respectively. As these updates have come on time so it is expected that the coming updates will also be available according to the list below:

  • Platform Stability (Beta 3)- June 
  • Beta 4&5- July 
  • The final release for AOSP and the ecosystem
  • Stable update- August to October

Meanwhile, based on previous One UI beta programs, One UI 6 beta should start from the second week of September to the first week of August. But the release of the One UI 6 beta update depends on the Android 14 stable update; it is seen that Google provides AOSP to the other brands then they start their beta program. Once the AOSP reaches Samsung, it will start dropping beta updates for its devices.

Android 14 will have new Passwords and Lock Screen Quick Links features

Last year, the One UI beta update came to the latest S series devices, so it is a high chance that Galaxy S23 series devices will get the update initially. However, every year Samsung introduces new devices in Galaxy devices and also retires the old devices and stops giving updates to them. This is decided on the basis of the policy, which says Galaxy devices get a maximum of four Android updates if they belong to the flagship category, while some are limited to two or three major updates. Based on this fact, we have made a list of devices that are no longer to get one UI 6.0 update and will be stuck with One UI 5.1.
