Two months earlier than last year, the first beta of One UI 5 appeared
The first beta version of One UI 6 based on Android 14 has been spotted on Samsung software servers – as part of builds S918BXXU1BWE2, S918BOXM1BWE2 and S918BXXU1BWE2. The fact that this is One UI 6 is indicated by the letter B in the designation. The software is designed for internal testing and released for the Galaxy S23 line, including the Galaxy S23 Ultra. So early One UI 6 was not expected.
Samsung is already working on One UI 6 based on Android 14.
Last year, the first internal beta of One UI 5 based on Android 13 was released two months later in July. Such early work on the new interface suggests that the final version of One UI 6 will also be released earlier than the final One UI 5 was released last year.
Recall that yesterday the first public beta version of Android 14 was released for various Xiaomi, OnePlus, Oppo, Vivo, Nothing, Tecno, etc. smartphones. But Samsung traditionally does not participate in the public beta test program under the auspices of Google.
