Samsung Galaxy A73 receives One UI 6.0 & Android 14 update

Samsung is rolling out a new and steady version of One UI 6.0 (which is based on Android 14) for the Galaxy A73. Recently, someone in the Samsung community mentioned getting an update on their Galaxy A73 just a few hours ago. While this might be a mistake, the active Android 14 core on Samsung’s servers shows that they really are starting to make it happen.

Right now, they’ve started this process in Malaysia and Iran. It’s very likely that the company will launch the update for other countries in the next few days. If you have a Samsung Galaxy A73, you can enjoy the new One UI 6 by installing this important update. You’ll know it’s the right one if the firmware number is A736BXXU5DWK2.
