Samsung has aggressively prepared for One UI 6 updates; recently, a new firmware for the Galaxy S21 was spotted in the US, which concludes that the company may introduce the latest One UI beta updates for the device with other Galaxy S series devices.

According to a leakster, CID, new firmware version numbers G991USQU8FWGA for the Galaxy S21 have been spotted on Samsung’s US server. Along with this, another Android device, a firmware version with the last letter ZWHx is also spotted on the Samsung server; however, he doesn’t reveal much about the device. On the other hand the US version of Galaxy S22 Ultra also spotted with S908USQU3DWGB version number.

In addition, the tipster also reveals some upcoming One UI 5.1 August builds for several devices.

  • For Galaxy S23: AWHx
  • For Galaxy S22: CWHx
  • For Galaxy S21-EEWHx

As he mentioned, these will be August builds, so most likely, they will come as new security patches. There is no more expectation from these updates. However, Samsung will soon start the One UI 6 beta program for Galaxy devices. The company will initialize the distribution on its flagship device, the Galaxy S23, and then expand it to other eligible devices.

Samsung initially introduced Galaxy AI exclusively for the Galaxy S24 series, then expanded it to 2023’s Galaxy flagship devices, and is now setting up to release it for 2022’s as well as 2021’s flagship lineups. 

Samsung has already teased the Galaxy S22 owners that ongoing testing is going on to deliver Galaxy AI features, and now recent reports are unveiling that not only the S22 series but also the entire 2022 and 2021 flagship lineups are in line to get the Galaxy AI features. 

This is being speculated by a forum post from Korea. A Samsung employee has confirmed that One UI 6.1 with Galaxy AI features will be coming to Samsung’s entire 2022 and even 2021 flagship lineups. Samsung had already announced earlier this week that more devices would receive Galaxy AI. 2023 Galaxy flagships have already grabbed the AI features, but noticeably, the Galaxy S23 FE is not eligible for the Instant Slow-Mo feature. 

  • Circle and search with Google
  • Live translation, to make voice and text translations of calls in real time;
  • Interpreter, who instantly translates the words of the interlocutors and displays them on a split screen;
  • Chat Assistant in the keyboard, to perfect the tone of the conversation;
  • Notes Assistant, for an AI-generated task summary and for creating templates to take notes with predefined formats;
  • Transcription Assistant to transcribe, summarize and possibly translate voice recordings;
  • generation wallpapers with AI
  • Generative change

Here’s the 2022 Galaxy device that would get Galaxy AI: 

  • Galaxy Tab S8
  • Galaxy Tab S8+
  • Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra
  • Galaxy S22
  • Galaxy S22+
  • Galaxy S22 Ultra
  • Galaxy Z Fold 4
  • Galaxy Z Flip 4

Samsung is also expanding the Galaxy AI to selected devices in 2021, although these devices would only support a few features such as Circle to Search and Magic Rewrite, which is expected to be a messy translation of Generative Edit. 

Here’s the eligible device list for the Galaxy AI in 2021: 

  • Galaxy S21
  • Galaxy S21+
  • Galaxy S21 Ultra
  • Galaxy Z Fold 3
  • Galaxy Z Flip 3

The exact timeline is not clear yet, but it is expected that the Galaxy AI features, along with the One UI 6.1 update, could arrive in early May.

Samsung introduced the One UI 6.1 update with its latest Galaxy S24 devices, and after taking a short break, the company expanded to more Galaxy devices and launched back in 2023. Now there is some good news: in the next few days, the company is preparing to expand the One UI 6.1 update to more Galaxy devices, including the Galaxy S22, Galaxy Z Fold 4, Galaxy Z Flip 4, and Galaxy A54.

According to the tipster, Tarun Vats, Samsung will release the One UI 6.1 update to the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Galaxy Z Flip 4, and Galaxy A54 devices in the coming days. He predicted that the update would be available in several regions of Asia and Europe.

Apart from these, there is no specific information available about the update’s availability; however, observing the pattern reveals that the company is rolling out the update batch-wise. Initially, it expanded the update to the highest devices that were related back in last year, but now it is prepared to release the update to the devices released in 2022.

The One UI 6.1 update will add several new customization features to various existing features, such as wallpaper, lock screen, alarm alerts, stickers, reminders, and many more.

With the latest update, users will also experience improvements in connectivity, such as Quick Share integration with nearby devices, and enhanced convenience in device location through Samsung Find. Along with this, several new AI features will be introduced, but it is not confirmed if every feature will arrive for these devices or if the company will keep some limitations on them.

One UI 6.1 Have Bugs and Issues: Should You Update?

Published

By


New updates are usually expected to refine older devices with new improvements, features, and changes, but unfortunately, Samsung’s latest One UI 6.1 turned wrong for the Galaxy S23 device. 

Samsung has already rolled out the Android 14-based One UI 6.1 update for the Galaxy S23 devices, but the owners of the devices after installing this update started claiming and reporting about the inconveniences they are going through, such as unresponsive touch screen issues, fingerprint sensors not working, and many more. 

Here we are discussing several issues that occur after installing One UI 6.1 on the Galaxy S23 smartphones

Unresponsive Touchscreens 

After installing the One UI 6.1 update, Galaxy S23 users started reporting on Reddit and Samsung’s community forums that a kind of inconvenience was occurring: an unresponsive touch screen. One Galaxy S23 Ultra owner claimed that his screen is unresponsive to finger touch and only works while using the S-Pen. Some of the users claimed that sometimes the screen stopped taking touch on some particular areas of the display. A user also commented, “After hitting the 6.1 update, I’m stuck with the same problem: the touch screen is totally unresponsive. It’s downright disheartening. I can’t believe a brand would drop an update this messed up.” 

Broken fingerprint sensors 

Apart from the touchscreen issue, other users on the same platform indicate that One UI 6.1 is also breaking the fingerprint sensor for the Galaxy S23. Upon examining the other two r/GalaxyS23 and r/GalaxyS23Ultra posts on Reddit, it appears that the fingerprint sensor is not entirely malfunctioning.

Regarding this issue, one user elaborates on the inconvenience. “After updating to One UI 6.1 yesterday, my fingerprint sensor randomly doesn’t register my input when trying to unlock the phone. There is no error whatsoever; the fingerprint icon animation re-appears once I touch the screen, and I have to touch that part again to get the phone unlocked.” 

Slow Charging 

One UI 6.1 update is appearing as a bundle of troubles since, after installing this update on the Galaxy S23 devices, owners are facing several issues. Some of them have reported that their Galaxy S23 maxes out around 15W for wired charging speeds even while using a 25W adapter. We have already reported about One UI 6.1 causing charging issues on Galaxy S23 devices. Although some users are facing this issue, while others didn’t notice any change in their charging speed, it still popped up across Reddit and Samsung’s forums. 

Phone Overheating 

Phone overheating issues are quite common after upgrading the device with a major update. Now, Galaxy S23 owners are also reporting the same issue: after installing One UI 6.1, their phones run hotter than usual. This one is a bit harder to pin down since one user claims on Reddit that One UI 6.1 made their Galaxy S23 get “quite warm to touch even when it’s idle and connected to WiFi.”

Here’s the question: If One UI 6.1 brings the issues mentioned above, then should One UI 6.1 be downloaded? 

A simple or one-word answer to this question is hard to say since we can’t neglect the fact One UI 6.1 brought several issues, but the fact is, you could download the update and be perfectly fine. Also, this update offers you bundles of Galaxy AI features to enhance your experience at your convenience.
