Breaking: Galaxy S21 Series gets an Android 14 One UI 6 beta update

While the update to stable Android 14 is still pending for Pixel phones, Samsung is moving quickly with its testing. They’ve started the One UI 6 beta program for Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra phones, beginning in South Korea.

Before this, the One UI 6.0 beta was available for the Galaxy S22 series, but now Samsung is ready to test the new interface based on Android 14 with Galaxy S21 users.

People who own Galaxy S21 phones in South Korea can already sign up for the One UI 6.0 beta program through the Samsung Members app. Samsung is currently accepting applications; although the software isn’t active yet, it could become available at any time. As usual, Samsung warns that beta programs can have some risks, like encountering bugs or possibly losing personal data.

The One UI 6.0 beta comes with many changes to the system, such as tweaks to the notification panel and quick settings, a new blur effect, a different font, more options for customizing the lock screen and Always On Display, clearer notifications, a separate battery menu, updates to pre-installed apps, and new camera widgets, among other things.
