Samsung’s One UI 5.0 Beta 1 Based On Android 13 Launching Announced

The day all fans have been waiting for the new Samsung One UI 5.0 is finally over. Samsung’s next major software update, One UI 5.0 is based on Android 13. The beta program was initially released in Germany, the United States, and South Korea. But today, Samsung announced that they are launching the beta release in public starting with the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

For other Samsung mobile models, the company said that they will eventually roll out the firmware update to more devices. Also, based on our experience, some countries will have to wait until the regional updates are made to become available. In this case, you might have to wait a little bit if you still don’t see the One UI 5.0 update notification on your device.

What To Expect in Samsung One UI 5.0 Beta Firmware Update?

According to Samsung, the One UI 5.0 update clings more to the cosmetic changes. That’s not surprising if we may say so. The One UI’s primary purpose is to provide the end-users with a better and more reliable Android operating system and user experience (UX).

Among the changes are the 16 new preset color themes that come with 12 additional color options. The color options can be used if you want to customize the UI elements such as your icons and quick panels.

Another change is widget stacking which will enable you to stack widgets of the same size on your display to save more space.

Blocking notifications is now easier with the new Samsung One UI 5.0 update. And not only that but there are also upgrades done for the camera capabilities. And more security capabilities, and new accessibility tools.
