Samsung could finally implement seamless updates with the One UI 6 and Android 14

Samsung One UI 6.0 is undergoing internal testing before a full-fledged rollout in beta. Samsung has been quick to start work on the next version. As the development of One UI 6 continues, the company is currently anticipated to release the first beta build in July. Now it is expected that Samsung might bring up the most awaited update, the seamless update. The purpose of seamless support is to reduce the amount of time your phone is offline while being updated.

A smartphone with seamless updates may transfer its software to a secondary partition while you continue to use the primary One, saving you from having to wait through a drawn-out reboot and installation procedure. When everything is prepared, you can smoothly boot to the new One.

Samsung’s Plan for Seamless Updates with One UI 6 and Android 14

Back in 2022, Samsung said that its phones don’t support Android’s Seamless update features. As a result of this, every time a firmware update is available, the phone will be locked for 10 to 20 minutes. Later in 2023, it is expected that there will be seamless updates supported in the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

But Samsung revealed that having gotten hands on the new Galaxy S23 Ultra, we ran the phone through the Treble info tool and confirmed that the phone once again does not support seamless updates. It was Google, the first one to introduce the A/B partition system in the latest version of Android 7.0 Nougat robot in 2016. Later the update has become mandatory from Android 13, but Samsung has not taken this update into account for their devices yet. Despite not requiring OEMs to use A/B partitions, Google enforces GMS license on native Android 13 smartphones by adding virtual A/B support to VTS testing.

These continuous A/B updates installed in the background necessitate rapid devices restart. Korean Giant has also decided to adapt to these updates. Samsung intends to use the forthcoming robot version’s update mechanism for Android 14 and One UI 6. It’s unlikely to be implemented on One UI devices already in use, which would prevent future smartphones with One UI 6 and native Android 14 from integrating seamlessly.
