  • Samsung starts rolling out the stable version of One UI 5 on its phones.
  • So far, only the S22 series has received the update.
  • The update will roll out to Samsung’s other devices later in the year and early 2023.

It’s taken some time, but Samsung has finally started releasing the stable version of its Android 13-based operating system – One UI 5. Here’s everything you need to know about the update and when it’s coming to your device.

When Google released Android 13 in August, only Pixel devices had access to the update. However, a few weeks later, Samsung released a beta version of One UI 5 for the Galaxy S22 series. After that, the beta slowly opened up to more devices within the Samsung portfolio and to more markets. Two months later, Samsung is finally ready to release the stable version of One UI 5.

What’s coming with Android 13?

For a refresher, let’s quickly go through what’s new in Android 13. This update brings a number of UI design changes, including auto-shape icons, more theme options, an alternative clock setup for the lock screen, and a new look for your Now Play widget. It also introduces some feature improvements like QR code scanner support, Bluetooth LE, a revamped audio output selector, per-app language options, a revamped clipboard, and smart home controls that can be accessed without unlocking your phone. In addition, there are a variety of privacy and security improvements, as well as internal optimization upgrades.

When is Android 13 coming?

Samsung announced earlier this month that One UI 5 will be making its debut on Galaxy S22 devices later this month. The update has arrived and is now available for download for the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra.

As for the rest of the Samsung phones, 9To5Google found that the company sent consumers in Korea a preliminary list through the Samsung Members app. The list shows a roadmap, starting with the devices scheduled to receive the October update and moving down from there.
