Samsung is currently preparing the second beta version of One UI 6. Reports from China suggested the software update could be delayed by a few days. While some markets are waiting for an updated version of the UI, today India got its first taste of the One UI 6 beta already running on Android 14.
Screenshots published on X/Twitter showed that Samsung has already opened registrations for Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+ und Galaxy S23 Ultra owners. The update is about 3GB in size and also includes the latest security patch.
Officially, the Samsung One UI 6 Beta and Android 14 bring “a fresh new design as well as enhancements to personalization, productivity, and security”. At the moment, Samsung is distributing the software update in India, China and the United Kingdom. Germany, South Korea and the United States, on the other hand, should only come into play with Beta 2.
However, it is still a beta firmware, so various users are still reporting problems. These include an unreliably working color palette, as well as problems removing apps and their shortcuts from the home screen. Samsung also has to optimize the battery life. Therefore, it is best not to install the One UI 6 update on your primary Samsung smartphone.
