Samsung used to give only two or three big updates for its devices, but now it’s doing better. Most of its top phones and mid-range ones are getting four major Android updates. Every year, Google comes up with a new Android version, and Samsung does something similar with its One UI. This update matches the new Android system, and it’s like a new generation of One UI. So, this year, they introduced a test version of One UI 6, which is based on Android 14. Some phones will get this update as their last big one. But before we get into the details, let’s check out what’s new in One UI 6.0.
One UI 6.0 is software created by Samsung, and it’s built on Android 14. It brings enhancements and special designs for Samsung devices. In this update, there are some cool new features, like changes to the Camera app, a new look for the Quick Settings panel, a bunch of new emojis, and different system fonts.
One UI 6.0 will give you a next-level experience level
The new features are what we are learning about, and include changes to the notification panel and quick settings, a renewed and full-bodied blur effect, a new font, more possibilities to customize the lock screen and the Always On Display, a sharper separation of notifications, the (liked) return of the separate menu for the battery within the settings, a refresh of all (or almost) pre-installed apps, new widgets for the camera and more. Some specific features may remain reserved for higher-end models, but for now we do not have precise guidance on this.
Samsung One UI 6 (Android 14) will be the last update for these Galaxy devices
Samsung has a well-organized lineup of smartphones. Every year, Samsung introduces new additions to these lineups and also promises to give them regular updates. However, the company has limited the software updates with a strict five-year update policy, which minimizes the burden of work for the company. In the software update policy, the company has promised to give a maximum of four Android updates and security updates for five years, so on the basis of the policy, below are the devices that will get One UI 6 as their last major software update.

Android 14-based One UI 6 marks the final major update for the listed devices, signifying that they won’t be eligible for any further significant Android updates beyond this version. However, users of these devices need not worry, as Samsung commits to providing ongoing support in the form of security patches throughout the remainder of their software cycle. While they may not receive new Android iterations, the continued security updates ensure that users can enjoy a safe and secure mobile experience with their devices, even after the conclusion of major software updates.
