One UI 6.0

One UI 6 update eligibility list: Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets

Published

on


Samsung has made a large contribution to the Android market, and it is possibly due to the company’s dedication towards its customers. It is worth noticing that earlier Samsung was known for providing quality phones in terms of hardware but lacked in the software segment, but then it gradually started working on the software as well and introduced its One UI skin, which provides a plethora of features that always keep ahead of its users. The Korean giant has recently introduced One UI 6 to some Galaxy devices, but it is currently in the beta phase.

As of now, the company has introduced the One UI 6 beta update to several Galaxy devices, including the Galaxy S23Galaxy A34, and Galaxy A54, in several regions, and gradually it will expand it to more eligible Galaxy devices. After completing the beta phase, the company will roll out the One UI 6 stable update to Galaxy devices. Most likely, the company will start rolling out the One UI 6 stable update on the Galaxy S23 device, then gradually expand it to other Galaxy devices.

If we compare it with the One UI 5 rollout, it is observed that Samsung is far behind. The main reason behind this is the Android 14 release delay. Last year, Google introduced the new Android 13 in August, and then Samsung effortlessly brought the One UI 5 to all the Galaxy devices in the last week of October. But this time, it seems that Samsung may take more time to introduce the latest One UI skin stable update for Galaxy devices.

These Galaxy devices will get One UI 6 update

Samsung hasn’t officially shared the list of devices that will get the One UI 6.0 update. However, we can make a reasonable guess about whether a device will get the update by considering Samsung’s promise of providing four generations of Android updates.

Samsung Galaxy S series

  • Galaxy S23
  • Galaxy S23 Plus   
  • Galaxy S23 Ultra
  • Galaxy S22
  • Galaxy S22 Plus
  • Galaxy S22 Ultra
  • Galaxy S21
  • Galaxy S21 Plus
  • Galaxy S21 Ultra
  • Galaxy S21 FE

Note: The Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 29 series is missing from this list as it will not be updated to One UI 6 but will continue receiving security patches.

Samsung Galaxy Foldable series 

  • Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5
  • Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4
  • Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3

Note: The Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip are missing from this list as they will not be updated to One UI 6, but they will continue to receive security patches.

Samsung Galaxy A series 

  • Galaxy A73
  • Galaxy A72
  • Galaxy A54
  • Galaxy A53
  • Galaxy A52 5G
  • Galaxy A52s
  • Galaxy A34
  • Galaxy A33
  • Galaxy A24
  • Galaxy A23
  • Galaxy A14
  • Galaxy A13
  • Galaxy A04s

The Galaxy A51 is missing from this list as it will not be updated to One UI 6 but will continue receiving security patches.

Note: Some of the listed devices will get the core version of the latest One UI 6, which means they will get the light version which is separately optimised to give enhancements according to their hardware specifications.

Samsung Galaxy M and F series 

  • Galaxy M54
  • Galaxy M53 5G
  • Galaxy M33 5G
  • Galaxy M23
  • Galaxy M14
  • Galaxy M13
  • Galaxy M04
  • Galaxy F54
  • Galaxy F23
  • Galaxy F14 5G

Note: As mentioned, some of the budget devices were launched with the stripped-down “One UI Core” version, and they will remain on that same path, missing out on some One UI 6 features.

Samsung Galaxy Tablets and rugged devices  

  • Galaxy Tab S9
  • Galaxy Tab S9 Plus
  • Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra
  • Galaxy Tab S8
  • Galaxy Tab S8 Plus
  • Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra
  • Galaxy Tab S7 FE
  • Galaxy Xcover 6 Pro

The Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7 Plus won’t get the new Android updates because they were introduced with Android 10 and have already gotten three updates up to Android 13. Samsung promised four updates, but it came after these tablets were released, so it doesn’t apply to them.

However, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE came out with Android 11. We’re not sure how many updates it will get, but even under Samsung’s old policy of three updates, it should be able to get Android 14.

Samsung hasn’t released many rugged devices in recent years, so there are only a few devices that will be getting the One UI 6 update. In fact, there’s just one device on the list: Galaxy XCover 6 Pro

If your device isn’t on the list above, it probably won’t get the One UI 6 update. Samsung might decide to give it the update, but the chances are pretty low. And even if they do, it will happen after all the devices on the list get their updates, so you might have to wait a long time. If your device isn’t mentioned, it’s also quite old, so you might want to think about getting a newer Samsung Galaxy phone instead.

Meanwhile, users can also benefit from several productivity and information-accessible AI features, such as Circle to Search, which enables users to instantly take information about any object on the screen.

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.
