These Galaxy devices will miss the One UI 6 (Android 14) update

The fans of the Korean brand are very excited about the upcoming release of the new version of their own interface called One UI 6. This new version will be based on the latest Android 14 operating system and is expected to be available in a stable form in the fall.

Samsung consistently leads the way in delivering timely updates for its devices. However, the company has set certain limitations in the past. Typically, Samsung offers a maximum of five years of support, which includes four Android updates and security patches throughout the five-year period. Adhering strictly to this policy means that some devices will inevitably reach the end of their support cycle. Here’s an overview of these devices and their status.

Google has already introduced Android 14 Beta 4 for Pixel smartphones, which has prompted expectations for Samsung to follow suit with its One UI 6.0 update. Samsung had previously released One UI 5.0 in October, based on Android 13, and followed up with One UI 5.1 in February. If you’re curious about whether your Samsung Galaxy phone or tablet will receive the upcoming Android 14 update, we have compiled a list of devices that will not be eligible for the update.
