Samsung Unveils One UI 6 Beta Rollout for Galaxy S23 Series, Showcasing Android 14’s Features
Samsung has announced the upcoming beta release of One UI 6, its customized version of Android 14, set to debut this month for the Galaxy S23 lineup. The initial launch will cover the United States, South Korea, and Germany, offering a sneak peek into Android 14’s enhancements for Samsung devices.
The announcement was first revealed through Samsung’s German newsroom, with a broader release expected soon in the US and Korea. The One UI 6 beta, for now, is exclusively tailored for Galaxy S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra models.
Despite the initial announcement of the immediate launch of One UI 6 beta, the post was swiftly removed, hinting at a possible delay.
Anticipated changes within Samsung One UI 6 encompass alterations to the user interface, built-in apps, and enhanced customization features. Built upon Android 14, One UI 6 empowers users to tailor their smartphone experience even further, introducing modifications to various apps and functionalities, along with a wide array of customization options.
The beta version is currently accessible in three key markets: Korea, the USA, and Germany.
A significant visual upgrade showcased by Samsung highlights a revamped Quick Settings interface. This includes prominent Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles, accompanied by a 4×3 grid below for additional quick adjustments. Below this grid, a brightness slider is featured alongside various display options, complemented by buttons for device control and modes. The entire interface is neatly organized into sections, reminiscent of the aesthetics seen in iOS and Oppo’s ColorOS. Samsung also emphasizes the enhanced accessibility of the Quick Panel, now accessible with a single swipe from the top-right corner, simplifying the process compared to the previous two-swipe access.
Samsung One UI 6 introduces the innovative ability to dynamically change wallpapers based on time or mode. Samsung describes it as “a notably sleek appearance, with many elements refined for a modern and minimalist look. The redesigned Quick Panel enables convenient access to frequently used features, now available with a single swipe from the upper right corner of the screen. This ensures quicker access to device settings.”
