On October 5, Samsung had its yearly Developer Conference where they officially introduced One UI 6.0, their latest custom Android interface. They’ve been testing it in a beta program for a while, but this official announcement means the final version is coming soon.
One of the big changes is in the Quick Panel. It’s now split into different parts. At the top, you’ll find Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings. In the middle, there are quick setting icons. Toward the bottom, there’s a brightness slider, controls for eye care, Smart View, and device settings. The new design is clean and makes it easy to see and use all the quick settings.
One UI 6.0 Features:
- New emoji design.
- Picture and video previews in the Share panel.
- More sharing options.
- Multitasking improvements through a pop-up window that can remain open after you leave the Recents screen.
- A lock screen clock that can be positioned freely.
- Simplified app icon labels for the home screen.
- A new Weather widget, more information in the Weather app — including an interactive map view — and enhanced Weather illustrations.
- A wide range of camera improvements, including a new widget, more alignment options for watermarks, quick access to resolution settings, easy-to-apply filters and effects, and more.
- Improvements to Calendar, Reminder, and Samsung Internet.
- Quick actions for apps in Finder search results.
- Recommendations in the My Files app to help you free up storage.
- Smarter Airplane mode.
- Auto Blocker, which is an extra layer of protection preventing unknown apps from installing, checking malware, and blocking malicious commands from being sent via a USB connection.
- Customizable Bixby text call greetings and the option to switch to Bixby text call at any time, even during a call.
- More accessibility features, including new magnification options and custom cursor thickness options.
Samsung is providing on a big update called One UI 6, and right now, they’re testing it to make sure it works well. People in countries like India, China, the United Kingdom, Germany, South Korea, Poland, and the US can try it out early because they’re in a special group. But don’t worry if you’re not in one of those countries; you’ll get the update when it’s all finished and works perfectly, just like a shiny new car!
However, users from different countries can also install it on their Galaxy S23 Series and Galaxy A54 device. Thanks to the custom ROM flashing provided by BredzProh, Now you can enjoy all the new features that are available in the One UI 6 beta update. Let’s know how you can install it.

Due to carrier restrictions, Galaxy S23 users in the US are also not getting the beta update on their devices. The Beta Program is only available to T-Mobile customers in the USA who have a phone that is not locked to a specific service. So they can also install the update on their devices. Tap the link according to your device model. The below list includes the link according to the last update available later on your device, so you have to choose wisely.

The Galaxy A54 5G, also known as [SM-A546B (OXM OMC)], can now use a special ROM. You can find the link to it for download. But for safety reasons, it’s a good idea to wait for the official release in November 2023.
If you signed up as a beta tester through the Samsung Members App, you’ll soon get an OTA update on your phone. You can install it just like any other update. Another option is to get the One UI 6 ZIP file. To install it, you’ll need to use ADB sideload manually.
