Samsung is finally rolling out OneUI 6.0 Beta program for the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra. After retracting a couple of times in the past, the company finally kicked off the Beta program.
Samsung’s development of OneUI 6 seems to be in the final phases as the company is teasing it again and again. A couple of days after retracting its announcement on the Samsung Germany newsroom, the company today pulled the release from the Samsung US website. The reason is unidentified yet, but the company might be experiencing some technical glitch.
Samsung’s OneUI 6.0 Features
As per the deleted press release, Samsung is launching the OneUI 6 for Galaxy S23 owners in the US, South Korea, and Germany. There are several new features including the goodies from Android 14, improved security and data protection services, and a new system share screen.
Samsung is primarily highlighting the simplified design, modern look, and redesigned quick settings panel. The pill-shaped redesign from Android 12 is finally settling on OneUI 6.0 with expanded Wifi and Bluetooth tiles. Unlike in OneUI 5.1, the company is streamlining customizable features in OneUI 6.0 which were earlier limited to additional apps like Good Lock.
Further, the new UI brings the ability to match lockscreens based on the current Mode or Routine. Other changes include Samsung Keyboard support for new emoji and a new customizable camera widget that allows the user to preselect settings and mode.
Samsung OneUI 6.0 seems delayed once again due to unknown reasons. It was scheduled to be made available for the Galaxy S23 users in the US, South Korea, and Germany. However, we can’t comment on its availability until we see a new announcement press release.
It will be the beta version, and the testers can enjoy it on their smartphones. We don’t recommend daily users to install OneUI 6.0 Beta, rather they should wait for the stable version which is expected in the coming few weeks.
Once the testing is done for the Galaxy S23, the update will be pushed to other devices such as the Galaxy S22 series, Galaxy Z Fold 5, and other models.
