We’ve been getting a closer look at One UI 6.0, which is based on Android 14, thanks to the beta versions that have been available in recent weeks. We’ve tried these betas on various Samsung models, including the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S22, Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy Foldables, and mid-range models like the Galaxy A54, Galaxy A53, and Galaxy A34. During the 2023 Samsung Developer Conference, the company officially introduced the new operating system, but they didn’t reveal when it would be released to the public.
The early version of One UI 6.0 with Android 14 is still being tested, and Google has released the finale stable version for Pixels with Pixel 8 series. And the One UI 6.0 beta program started in August in the United States, South Korea, Germany, China, Poland, the United Kingdom, and India for Galaxy S23 Series.
The Samsung One UI 6 is getting some cool new stuff along with the regular Android 14 updates. It’s going to have a new font and easier-to-read icon labels. They’re also adding some new widgets, like a widget that shows you weather info and another one that lets you quickly use your favorite camera settings. it also including the lock screen, Home screen, Notification panel, Text font, Multitasking, Keyboard, sharing, Weather app, Calendar, camera, and Gallery.

It is important to note that all the features mentioned above are described in the official changelog that appears on the Galaxy S23. As it was the first beta update, it is possible that it has lacked many features, so to get the actual idea of One UI 6, we have to wait for the stable update.
